Monopoly Deal

Monopoly Deal

Monopoly Plus was a nice easy game to boost ones Gamerscore, so I expected Monopoly Deal to be the same and I was right, except for one achievement that is so random, that when I got it on the Xbox One version first, I expected little to no trouble to get it on the Xbox 360 version. I was wrong.

So the "Final No" achievement requires you to overrule a trade that has been overruled with a "Just Say No" card. Easy enough, if you know that your opponent has said card, and you have a card, and as I found out later on, if the trade is critical enough. You can't just force them to use the card on a trivial trade, it has to be something worth them using the card. Now all this happens with you totally unaware of your opponents cards, so you have to not only card count (only two in a deck) and watch what card your opponent banks, but survive the game as Normal and Hard difficulty (which seem to be the only levels that you can get your opponent to perform this move) will have you fighting for survival really fast if you don't protect your investments.

After playing the game for a while I actually started to like the game, and even found out that it's a real card game. Now if only I had 4-5 other friends that were as sinister as I am when it comes to strategic property investment and calculated theft... I mean legitimate property acquisition. The games even though they are cheap on Xbox and easy to finish are actually quite fun. I wish that there was a harder difficulty setting though as by the end I knew how to totally destroy the CPU.
