Foursquaropoloy Turns Your City Into A Giant Monopoly Board

By Megan O'Neill 

Monopoly fans rejoice!  A new gaming app turns your city into a giant Monopoly board.  Foursquaropoloy uses Foursquare to make you the game piece and your city the board!

How does Foursquaropoly work?  Everyone starts with $100,000 in their bank account that they can use to purchase buildings around their city.  When you arrive and check-in at a building that hasn’t been bought yet, you can purchase it if you’ve got enough money.  Once you own a building, every other person that checks in with Foursquare has to pay rent to you, just like when you land on someone else’s property in a game of Monopoly.  Each week you’ll have to pay bills if you want to hold on to your properties.

Just like in the original board game, the more popular locations (i.e. Park Place, Boardwalk) cost more than the less popular locations (i.e. Baltic Ave).  If you want to own the most popular properties in your city you’ll have to strategize.  But seriously, how cool would it be to own the Empire State building?!
