This game caught me off guard when I first got it. I thought it was confusing and hard to figure out, but once I learned the rules, it became one of the top 5 Wii games on my favorites list! The strategy you have to use in buying out districts, investing stock, etc...is pure genius!! Though I don't understand why they used Mario and Dragon Quest Characters, I'm not complaining, because the experience is fantastic!
If you can dominate in Monopoly then you should have no problem understanding how to dominate this game. You buy property and invest stocks in districts. This game is way better than monopoly. This game is not for everyone and if you suck at Monopoly don't try this game!
