There are new extras too, to expand the game's fun, including property auction mini-games and many different boards including real-world locations and new fictional playgrounds.

Before being founded in 1992 as Headgate Studios, many of the top staff at this Utah-based developer worked on the Links series of golf games for Access Software. After being bought by EA they moved onto Tiger Woods, but now make mostly family games for the Wii and Nintendo DS.
To celebrate its 75th anniversary, the world of Monopoly comes to life through a living, breathing city that you can build, own, and monopolize.
