    Default Monopoly City Streets - Playing Monopoly with the world online

    Been seeing this game talked about in the news. Seems Hasbro has decided to use Google Maps and OpenMaps and build a monopoly game around it. So you get to buy streets anywhere in the world and build buildings on it and charge rent, just like the real monopoly.

    BUT...they tried to launch yesterday and got swamped with visitors to their site. Approximately 1.7 million unique visitors and they say they are sure this number isn't all.

    So at the moment, registration is down until they put in bigger servers to handle the load.

    Website is functioning slowly somewhat: http://www.monopolycitystreets.com
    Wikipedia page on the game: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monopoly_City_Streets

    Free Thinkers are those who are willing to use their minds without fearing to understand things that clash with their own customs, beliefs for privileges. This state of mind is not common, but it is essential for right thinking; where it is absent, discussion is apt to become worse than useless.

    I tried it a while ago and got this message.

    Um.. Our servers are down. We're trying to find out if the building with them has been demolished. Best give us some time and come back later.

    Hhhmm I think that may be an Monopoly inside joke, Ropy.

    Well I got to create an account and log in. Somebody took Half Way Tree Rd. already, name Trix.

    Wanted to buy Knustford Blvd but it's not available for sale. Dunno if it's their servers are what.

    The game is still limited at the moment as they are still working on their servers.
