Monopoly and Google join forces for online game play

The classic board game of Monopoly has been played for years in homes all over the world. But what if you could literally play Monopoly on the world against thousands of other players?

The makers of Monopoly have launched a version of Monopoly that you play on Google Maps against thousands of other players online. The game can be found at http://www.monopolycitystreets.com but currently the site is being hammered and is slow at best.

The game plays slightly differently as you start with three million dollars and can purchase streets or homes and earn rent for each establishment that you own. From there the details are slim as the site is painfully slow.

The game could be a major hit for the Monopoly crowd as it mergers classic fun with modern software in a 21st century version of the board game.
