The history of board games dates back many, many years. The popularity of the social game genre was huge, especially when you consider the lack of small scale, table-top entertainment in the early 20th century. Giving players a chance to meddle with fictional finances, Monopoly proved to be one of the most popular board games around. Decades later, it's still touted as one of the all time classics of the board game. Monopoly’s delve into the world of interactive entertainment proves just as popular as the original.

Sorting the board pieces, flimsy paper money and property cards after a game of Monopoly was always a monotonous task. The PC instalment of the series disposes of this. While this may appear to be an irrelevant feature of the game, ironically, it sometimes proves to be the most attractive prospect to the general game-playing public. The international name of the game has also been well incorporated, since you can play the boards of any one of twelve countries, from Germany to Australia. The rules of Monopoly can also be tampered with, allowing for a quick, non-complicated short game. The world of Monopoly is wonderfully animated, and with 6-player multi-play over the Internet, this is the most comprehensive version of the classic board game to date.
