Monopoly Lifesized adventuring around the board

Did you know that Monopoly has been played all over the world since 1903?

For those who don’t know what Monopoly is. It is a multi-player property themed board game. The game involves players rolling two dice to move around the board, buying and trading properties, and developing them into houses and hotels. Players can collect rent from their opponents. Money can also be gained or lost through Chance, Community Chest and the Tax square. Players can also end up in jail.
