On September 9th an online version of the board game Monopoly will be launched. No exact details about the game yet but what is clear that it will be using Google Maps and it seems that the point is for it to become a massively multi-player online game. The game is Google Monopoly or Monopoly City Streets. I tried to check out the game's teaser site a minute ago but it is down, probably it is flooded with visitor? But I gathered from TechCrunch the description of the game as stated in the teaser site:
The goal is simple. Play to beat your friends and the world to become the richest property magnate in existence.
Own any street in the world. Build humble houses, crazy castles and stupendous skyscrapers to collect rent. Use MONOPOLY Chance Cards to sabotage your mates by building Hazards on their streets.
