Description of Monopoly

BSEditor: Monopoly on the iPod faithfully recreates the classic board game, including those well-loved player tokens and all the traditional rules, such as tossing someone in jail if they roll three doubles in a row. Up to four players can participate, including computer-controlled opponents with three levels of ability. You can even choose between American and British settings — in the latter, Marvin Gardens and Ventnor Avenue are replaced by Piccadilly and Leicester Square, respectively, and so forth.

Play it Your Way
Many of us have played Monopoly with our own house rules over the years, and the iPod version obliges by allowing you to tweak certain settings. For example, you can InCrease the payday for the Go space up to $400 (with the option to double it if the player lands there), change all players’ starting cash reserves, decide how to conduct auctions when someone passes on purchasing a property (or whether to conduct them at all), and so forth. You can even start a game with all properties randomly distributed to the contestants, allowing you to Get right into house and Hotel building.

In addition, you can trade properties and cash with other players, another time-honored tradition of those Sunday evenings spent around the dining room table. The computer-controlled participants will also get in on the action, their trading savvy dictated by the difficulty level assigned to them.

Monopoly also tracks your statistics, allowing you to view your overall record, the most money you’ve ever earned in a game, and the most hotels and houses you’ve ever owned at one time. Unfortunately, it can’t tell you how you’ve fared in those metrics since childhood, when you and your siblings argued over who got to be the race car. Perhaps it’s better to leave such things to the pre-digital part of your life. Now you can merely save your progress in the middle of a Monopoly marathon and pick it up Again any time. You can even be the race car every time you play.
