If the name Franklin Mint makes you think of high-priced tchotchkes and late-night television, well, you aren’t the only one. But everyone loves board games, right? Okay, almost everyone. Even if you love board games, you might not love the tacky, flimsy packaging they come with, and Franklin Mint has taken care of that.
This Collector’s Edition Monopoly set is housed in a beautifully polished all-wood case. Game tokens are accented with 24 karat gold, and the houses and hotels are beautifully designed, nothing like the cheap red and green boxes that come with the usual set. This set also boasts pull out drawers for the bank and all the pieces, and leather-bound “Real Estate Portfolio”. This is the kind of game that you can enjoy with your family now, and then pass it down to future generations.
