This interactive edition of Monopoly features smooth 3D graphics, expressive animations, and ten stylized game boards with themes such as jungle, arctic, and future. The game's World Edition game boards are based on real-life world capital cities, and bonuses are unlocked as players fill up their virtual passports by playing in each one. For fans of the original, all classic rules apply in the original mode of play. The 2008 edition also introduces a "Richest" mode, which is a more fast-paced, party-game styled approach to Monopoly. Players compete in mini-games to earn dice rolls. Dice roles determine the number of properties the player is dealt each turn. The player takes possession of any unclaimed properties that are dealt, but pays rent on any properties that are owned by another.
