Play the newest version of the classic game by downloading the software
Enter the Dynamic World of Monopoly
For fans of Monopoly, this game needs little introduction. For decades Monopoly has been one of the most popular board games in the world and has been enjoyed by generations of game lovers.
The game concept and strategy of Monopoly Here & Now is very similar to the original board game. Players move around the board to try and capture property, complete sets and build on their new land. When players land on the property belonging to their opponents they have to pay rent, and the object of the game is to force the other players to become bankrupt and be the last player standing.
The classic board game really comes to life with its 3D graphics and bright colours. The graphics and simple strategy is sure to appeal to people of all ages and just like the original this is a great family game. The rules are fairly easy to understand and players have the option to customise the rules at the start of the game to create their own tailor made version that helps to make it even more enjoyable. There are three difficulty settings, so people who have honed their skills can enjoy an extra level of challenge if they wish, while younger players can get a lot out of the easiest setting.
One of the downsides to playing the board game is that each game can last for several hours. This can be a problem in the modern world where people have busy lives and it might be necessary to abandon the game without completing it. This problem is solved with Monopoly Here & Now, as players can simply save their progress and return to the game another time. you can even select how long the game will last at the very start, making it possible to simply play a quick game if you are short on time.
There is no need to waste time setting up the board, keeping track of pieces and working out how much things cost. The game does all of this for you, allowing you to simply focus on the action of playing.
Monopoly Here & Now is created as a world version, and the pieces represent popular elements from around the world such as Russian Nesting Dolls, the Easter Island Statue and Japanese Sumo. Players can skip around the world to visit famous locations in cities such as Tokyo, New York and London.
The game experience is very high quality and the game runs smoothly throughout. Some players may find the game music rather annoying at first. However, there are lots of different tracks to choose from and you can turn off the music entirely if you prefer. The sound effects can also be turned off, although they do add an extra dimension to the game. Short and simple animations pop up from time to time such as when a player gets sent to jail or lands on their opponent’s property and has to pay a heavy fine.
Purests may miss the ability to actually hand their game pieces and money. However, there are so many great benefits of playing Monopoly Here & Now on the computer that more than make up for these limitations. The game has brought the game to a whole new generation of gamers and makes it more accessible than ever before.
