Who doesn’t love a good board game? Well, here comes the next generation in family board gaming – Boom Street. Boom Street has several different themes boards, that you go around purchasing property and charging opponents for landing on them. Sound familiar? Yeah, just a bit.
As you move around the board you can buy shops to build a property portfolio along with collecting ‘suits’ that can be cashed in at the bank to earn more money. There are a few different settings, beginner to get you used to it, and standard mode which offers more strategic options as well as the ability to manipulate the stock market. Which sounds totally legit.
You can play on Mario and Dragon Quest themed boards, and you can also play with your own Mii or over 20 playable characters from Mario and Dragon Quest. I totally put dibs on Yoshi forever and ever to the end of eternity. You can play with up to our people on the same Wii remote, or against people all over the world using the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection, to see who can earn the most net worth the quickest.
Boom Street is coming out on January 5, 2012 on the Wii for $69.95. For more information on the game, go HERE
