    Sounds interesting, though I'm guessing it still won't be as enjoyable as I found Monopoly Tycoon to be.

    Monopoly needs to be an Xbox Live Arcade title, that would be ideal! Come to think of it, Live Arcade could do with more board game-based titles.

    Yeah! I played the GBA version and it sucked, but on live it could be interesting, web cam and all.

    This is all very well and good but I have some questions. Will it allow you to cheat? Will it also allow you to bend the rules enough to keep the peace (when your nephew is getting really ratty that he's running out of money and you don't want to cause too much grief)?

    That was half the fun in the real board game and paper money. Constantly keeping an eye on everything the other players were doing and especially so with the banker (usually me). The electronic version (the one with that card reader) really spoiled a lot of that fun.
    My only concern is should I hide my true identity? A costume maybe?

    0iD: Plus weeing in it every now & again does it good
    scaryjim: 10" is just a little large to hold comfortably in one hand, which makes it a lot harder to tap, swipe and generally interact with.

    I agree.

    I used to hide a certain amount of money in my pocket from the beginning of the game and add some more to it as the game progressed. I would then play on and make sure that everyone sees the rest of my money, and so therefore assume I was doing crap. When everyone thought I was on the verge of bankruptcy I would gleefully take out £3000 at which point I would start building hotels like a lunatic. However this strategy never worked when I was younger, everyone thought I had stolen the money from the bank!
