Monopoly City Streets turns Google Maps into a game board
The building possibilities are also beefed up, with castles and skyscrapers. Chance cards have changed a bit, too: now they're used to build hazards on your competitors' property. To counteract hazards, you have to get a bulldozer card. With all of this building and demolishing, Monopoly City Streets sounds more like a hybrid of Monopoly and Sim City than a straight-up Monopoly game. Maybe, as the game's website claims, this will be epic fun. If nothing else, this is one time Google can be glad to hear its name in the same sentence as "monopoly."
The game opens today at 6 p.m. GMT / 1 p.m. EST, so you'd better be ready if you want to be one of the first players out of the gate and snap up your favorite property.
