Monopoly has to be one of the most popular board games out there. I love that there are so many varieties of the same game, with the same basic concept, but personalized to match the theme. We have a few Monopoly games ourselves, such as the original and the JETS version. It is a very competitive and fun game to play with friends and family, and perfect for rainy days indoors this summer!
The people over at Monopoly have kicked it up a notch and created Monopoly zAPPed to keep up with the times. This interactive board game utilizes your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad for gameplay. Simply download the free Monopoly zAPPed game app from the App Store and set up the board game. You know longer play with Monopoly money, but rather a credit card that works with your iPhone (or other iDevice products) and the money is simply added or subtracted from your account.
There are a bunch of mini games within the game which is a great addition to Monopoly which has not been done before. Of course, this kind of gaming can only happen when technology is used, so I’m happy to see that along with adding the use of the iDevices, game play has also been update to reflect the type of games kids are into these days.
Don’t worry, you still have that same family interaction you would normally have when you have Family Game Night! Your kids will love that you are “keeping with the times” and technology is now being incorporated in the old games we had growing up. Keep Family Game Night fun and interesting. This is a great update on an old family favorite that everyone is sure to love!
You can find Monopoly zAPPed wherever board games are sold. Be sure to check out Monopoly on Facebook to stay up to date on their latest news!
