Remember when Monopoly City Streets launched? It went crazy over night, sunk server farms and created a new wave of addicted adult gamers the world over. So what would happen if you made that same Monopoly game… say, real?
Well, a few students have pulled this great little concept together for a project, with a mashup of Foursquare and monopoly style interface. I think the idea is so cool, they should actually be able to turn this into something legitimate if they can talk to Hasbro, who should be jumping all over it. Imagine playing a real-world version of Monopoly where ever you went, 24/7? Link in corporate partners to create a virtual rewards platform redeemable for real world objects and currency and this thing would have a cult following in no time!
Congrats to Deanna, Sean and Jaclyn for pulling this together… So, would you guys play?
