was a fun global game of Monopoly played with real streets
that only lasted a few months, under heavy demand. Two years later a possible successor has appeared on the horizon. Foursquaropoly.
Players start with $100,000 to purchase available properties when you check into a location. When a visitor checks in to a space that has an owner, they must pay rent.
"The app started off
as a student concept piece by Deanna McDonald
, Sean Tiraratanakul and Jaclyn Shelton. Naming and branding will change before the social game
is released. Most likely because trademark issues that could arise, unless the developers can work out a licensing deal with Hasbro."
"They are building "Foursquaropoly"
on Foursquare's API, just as Zynga and other game developers have launched products on Facebook."
