    A fun monopoly style game where you buy property and can also buy stocks in certain areas which yield dividends. This game is better if you have 4 people to play with, otherwise you spend much of your time watching the computer play. There is a speed up feature that makes this better, but still takes a while to play. If you play alone be prepared to get your A$$ kicked by the computer 100% of the time. My wife and I have played eleven times and came in a distant third and fourth every single time. I have played a lone six times and came in a distant fourth six times, so if you hate losing you will need to play with other people. The many different levels and boards keeps this game interesting as each one offers new challenges and strategic advantages. Overall an addictive game that is great with a few friends, but takes no prisoners when played alone. Expand

    They are going to say that it's a little of the plagiarism of Monopoly, but game offers supplementary functions, they put chillies in game, and in the world of dragon Quest blended in Mario's worlds, it is necessary to acknowledge that a bit a poor mixture.

    Boom Street is an original game that deserves to do well in the West. It is well presented and provides a big challenge for single players and lots of game time for board game aficionados.

    Interesting and quite complex desk game suffers from tediousness and not-so-attractive visuals. Boom Street is actually a kind of Monopoly game with more complicated rules. [Feb 2012]

    Intelligently redesigned but isn't punchy enough to be laughing all the way to the bank. [March 2012, p.96]
