New Monopoly Game to Use Google Maps

Category: Internet
Posted: 07:29AM

Hasbro, the creators of the popular board game Monopoly, will be unleashing a whole new animal on the internet tomorrow. Using Google Maps as the game board, Monopoly City Streets will allow users to purchase real streets that can be found using the service. Players will start with $3 million in Monopoly money, and will be able to place property on their streets. Only one player may own each street, but players can trade them if they wish. Chance cards will allow users to place bonus buildings such as schools on their streets. Players will earn rent from properties and will then be able to expand their real estate empire. The game will run until January 2010.

Apparently Hasbro got caught off guard by the overwhelming popularity of the game as the servers crashed under the initial load - http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/09/09/monopoly_city_streets_down_on_debut/
