Monopoly Goes Global

Monopoly, the game that always sounds like a good idea until after 2 hours of gameplay, your stubborn friends form an alliance that create a virtual stalemate, making a the game last way too long. Good times.

Well, what would happen if those original 20something properties turned into the a worldwide grab for the most popular streets of the world? You'd get Monopoly City Streets, a game that is played out in Google Maps. This virtual game corresponds with Hasbro's release of the Monopoly City board game and was done with the direct help of the Google Maps crew.

The game launched last week but due to technical issues related to overwhelming response and reports of cheating, the game will reset and begin again today. Check the blog for updates.
