Monopoly – The One With iPad Banking

Date:  Jan 14, 2013

I used to play Monopoly when I was young.

Last Saturday, I saw this in one of the Apple store (store that sell Apple products) in Millennium Walk.

It is a new version of Monopoly that you play together with either your iPhone or iPad.

It comes with a playing board.  The center is where you place your iPad.  All the property cards are placed at the side.

Of course, you still need to throw the dice to move your piece.

So, for example, when you go to “Park Place” and it has not been owned.

You click on the iPad to choose your action item.

There are lots of items you can choose from.  Most of the time, we chose Property to buy, to mortgage or unmortgage your property.  

Everytime you pass the GO place, you earned $2M.  So, you press the button and swipe your card.

If you land on someone else property, you choose “Pay Rent”.  Then, you key in how much you pay.

If you do not want to buy the property, you must action it.

If you hit the “Chance” or “Community Chest”, you can play mini games to earn more, or to make other people pay money.

To get out of jail, you can come here to choose your option.  

Paying taxes too are here.

But wait, we have no time to complete this, we cannot wait for anyone goes bankrupt.

So, how?  Simply say you want to quit and the iPad will FIND A WINNER for you.. but asking whose property is who, etc.

iPad just amazingly calculate who has the most assets.

Of course I win.  Although Jay Jay has build 2 houses, and I have none, but I have all the rich properties.  HaHaHaHa
