Buy property, trade stocks and get rich quick in Fortune Street for Wii. Read Kidzworld’s review for all the details.

Fortune Street is an action-adventure board game. The aim of the game is to get rich quick. Be the first to ramp up your net worth to the target amount and find your way back to the bank to cinch victory. If someone goes bankrupt, the player with the highest net worth remaining in the game is declared the winner.

Property Manager

An asset screen shows every player’s cash and net worth. When it is your turn you can roll the dice, view the board or manage your shops. If you land on a shop that isn’t already owned you can purchase it. If you are the owner, you can reinvest in the property. If another player is the owner, you need to pay them rent.

Rolling in Dough

In order to increase your net worth you can buy more property, invest in the property you own or buy and sell stocks. As you move along the game board you can collect suits (spades, hearts, diamonds and clubs) by landing on specific spaces. Once you have collected all four suits and head back to the bank you will be rewarded with a bonus.

There are a variety of special squares that can be landed on throughout the game. These squares can have an effect on the game by closing people’s property, letting other players receive commission on your property, starting a mini-game and more.

It’s Complicated

Easy Rules are a simpler version of the game that anyone can enjoy. Buy shops, build them up and bring it home in a bold, brisk game of business and bargaining. The main focus of this mode is to collect suits, buy shops and invest in property. Standard Rules are the well-loved rules played by fans of the series since 1991. Dabble in stocks and dominate districts in a deeply devious game of commercial deftness. In addition to the aspects of Easy Rules, players can buy stocks and build up property in a specific district.

Fortune Street for Wii is not intended for younger players. While the Mario franchise’s characters are the focus of the game and give it a lighthearted feel, it is much more complicated than you would think. The game plays like monopoly, but on a deeper level. You don’t need to enjoy math to like the game, but it might help you win easier! All in all, the game is highly addictive.

Cameron's in drag, makes his father mad Since he was a little boy he always felt more comfortable in lipstick People call him ###, teachers turn their backs Off the bus he runs and runs to get home before anyone can catch him These days the world is full of aliens The world is full of aliens But you are a real, live human Aren't you, Cameron? Powder and a brush can cover any cuts And quickly running cotton under cold water rinses out the blood marks Cameron, you're a star A light where there is dark And you're a hundred times a woman A hundred times the man that they are These days the world is full of aliens The world is full of aliens, but you are a human A real, live human Aren't you, Cameron? You're not an alien You're not an alien You're not an alien Cameron You're not an alien You're not an alien You're not an alien Cameron
