Monopoly + Google = Tycoon Training

11 09 2009

Hasbro has just released an online version of it’s popular Monopoly boardgame – only this time every street is up for sale, including the one you live on. Using the Google maps interface, Hasbro has put a price on nearly every street in the world. You compete against other players to…well… dominate the world by purchasing and building your own empire (kind of like the boardgame right?). The game started on September 9 and will run until the end of January. This game has basically been running for 2 days and already our mid-sized university town (Guelph) has a full-sized soccer stadium, hugh high-rise developments, and some toxic nuclear plant-like development…who’s buying and selling in your home town?

You can get your $3 million (Monopoly) bucks and join the game for free at:
