I didn't like Monopoly at first but it grew on me. It has a tight and drainy lower playfield and does not reward flailers so your first 10 or so games are going to be pretty short.
There's some strategy to moving around the board. For example, I advance railroads by back-handing the small ramp and then advance spots to get to the green area for some quick millions.
The wizard mode is not a point windfall. You actually have to play it and do well to get good points.
It has a nice cross shot and is very vaguely reminiscent of TAF, but feels quite different in part because it's stern hardware.
