“Monopoly, in spite being the classiest of all board games, unfortunately is packaged just as boringly and uncreatively as every other garbage board game on the shelves. So, I decided to repackage it… turning the class up to 11.

All of the boxes are made out of chocolate brown mat board and skinned in cream arches cover. The final package is just over 10″ x 10″ x 1.5″ and includes smaller containers for all of the various pieces and cards and a laser-cut holder for all of the houses and hotels.”

    Great project, very well done!

    I’d love to see how he’d do the actual game board as well. I suggest pitching this to Parker Brothers and naming your price. It worked for Target and their new pharmacy bottles.

    The box is top-notch, I’d definively replace my game for this one.

    The overuse of icons without text for the cards boxes are a bit to ornementative though, and may be confusing for many peopleā€¦

    and too bad there’s no game mat! ;)

    Absolutely killed the visuals which thrill this game, which are an integral aspect of this game. This redesign is – unfortunately – a typical base corporate flat vectorization, something akin to elevator buttons.

    Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore should hire those who can instill the ‘emotion’ of a design, the ‘expression’ of a design, ergo design packaging, in students that come to ‘learn’ design.

    The above design is a tragedy, a road kill, a lost opportunity to show the world – in graphic form – the thrill of this great game.

    Less is not more.

    I somewhat agree with Neil, here… somewhat. I wouldn’t go so far as to call this a tragedy… more like a box of chocolates.
