Take a step back in time and join Uncle Pennybags, the Master of Ceremonies, as he welcomes you to Atlantic City in the 1930s. Using the Depression Era as a backdrop for the game (the period when the original board game was created), Hasbro Interactive brings the sounds of the era (ragtime music) to life and offers full 3D animations (over 800) of the properties, tokens and dealings found within the game.
Up to six players can participate in Westwood Studios' Monopoly CD-ROM for the Macintosh. LAN, Internet and hot seat competitions are viable options with the added bonus of being able to customize computer opponents. The game includes a large number of pre-designed AI-controlled players as well as a chat function for online play. For international players, translations and currency exchanges are performed in real time.
Many "house rules" are provided as customizable game options including collecting fines for Free Parking, hidden cash, auctions, jail and turn-only transactions, immunity from rent on traded properties, unlimited houses and hotels and more. Trading of items such as "Get Out of Jail Free Cards," cash, immunity and title deed cards are highlighted and tracked by the computer.
