And you must be the Monopoly guy…

Toymaker Hasbro has launched an online massive multi-player version of its best-selling property game Monopoly, dubbed Monopoly City Streets.

Monopoly

This free to play game uses Google Maps, or Open Street Map, as the actual playing board. New players will be given three million Monopoly dollars to begin building their virtual portfolio and theoretically every street in the world will be available for purchase.

The goal of the game, like the real-life version, is to earn money on the streets and properties and become the richest property tycoon around. Once a player has taken control of a street, they will be able to charge rent and build new virtual properties. Streets may also be traded and sold with other players.

Hasbro is introducing new chance cards, which will allow players to sabotage rival competitors by building rubbish dumps, prisons or wind farms on their property to reduce the rent value of those adjoining.

The game has just gone live and will close at the end of January 2010. For more info see www.monopolycitystreets.com

There has been no explanation for what happens if you land on “Go to Jail” however.

  6. It doesn’t seem to be loading for me at all. Just a splash screen.

  7. Darren Byrne says:

    @Darragh Press F11 to go full screen. You’ll see a play button then. Be warned: it’s running extremely slowly at the moment.

  8. Nice one, thanks. I’m on a 1680*1050 screen here and it just wasn’t coming up. Jaysis. Doesn’t seem to want to load in Chrome either. :-/
