Top Christmas Presents for Children for 2020 (2 of 10)

This time, as promised, I am going to have a look at "Monopoly for Losers".


What a quirky idea, having a game that instead of trying to do your best to win, you do the opposite. To lose is to win!

Most people are familiar with the popular board game Monopoly and nobody likes to lose! So the idea of playing to lose and then win sounds delightful!

This backwards twist of the game makes losing an opportunity of winning and allows you to celebrate it instead. A total turn around where players can earn cash in the game by for instance by going to Jail? Or paying rent? Even going bankrupt wow!  With the additional extra help of using “Mr Monopoly”, the large token that offers players advantages over other players. A definite ‘must-have’ for those family nights! Recommended for ages 8 and upwards.

Makers: Hasbro Gaming

My Verdict


This is such a cool board-game a good alternative to the usual game of Monopoly and would be an ideal child pleaser for Christmas, 2020.
