Monopoly is one of the best classic board games that ever existed. There’s something about buying and selling property that appeals to people, both in the real world and in the gaming world. Monopoly for iPad brings that fun and exciting gameplay to your iOS device to experience on your own, or with your friends and family.

The iPad has proven to be a great way to bring board games into the electronic world. The screen is just large enough to allow for a comfortable, group experience while playing. The first point that should be made is that you can play this game in tabletop mode, which allows players to sit around the iPad and play as if the actual board was right in front of them. When it’s the next player’s turn, the screen automatically flips its orientation so all the text and buttons are in the correct viewpoint for that player. This feature is great, as you don’t have to spin the iPad on the table for each player’s turn.

The gameplay is mostly like the actual board game. You can shake the dice to roll, but your piece will move automatically. When you land on a property, the computer will guide you through the steps of purchasing, or passing on it to put it up for auction. When you’ve purchased all the properties of the same color, you can purchase houses and hotels. When other players land on your property, you’ll collect the rental fees. One of the great things about playing Monopoly digitally is that you’ll never have to argue about rules with your family and friends again. The computer will tell everyone what the rules are. Of course, you can also select your own rules, right from inside the app.

The graphics and sound are absolutely top-notch. Everything looks and sounds great. When you touch the dice, you can actually move them around, just like you’re shaking them, and then toss them on the board. You’ll even hear the sound the dice make when they hit the cardboard. This app is a must-own for anyone who’s ever been a fan of Monopoly. You’ll be playing for hours, just like you did back in the day.
