The standard Monopoly game is all about buying property on the board, it is based in London and when you own property and another player lands on it they then have to pay you rent. If you develop the property with houses or a hotel then they will have to pay you more money, you can only do this though when you have all of the pieces of land from a particular colour group of properties (hence the monopoly). The rent for the properties is proportional to the price you pay for the property, if the property was cheap then the rent will be cheap and you will not win much money but if it is an expensive property and you have developed the land too then you can expect to rake the money in should an opponent land on your property. The Monopoly board game also features cards called Chance and Community Chest, these add some excitement as you never know what you are going to get.
The new version of Monopoly is called Here & Now Monopoly and it is still located in London but is much more up to date with locations such as Covent Garden, Wembley Stadium and the London Eye and also features new movers including the mobile phone, roller blade, skateboard, cheese burger and even a London bus.
