Go to jail
Yeeeeaaaaah! Proud owner of "Het Zuid" in Antwerp! Den Hopper is mine :-)
10 years after the Nokia Game, this seems to be the real Global Online Game! Launched yesterday and the servers are red hot, lagging everywhere, blogs and forums overloaded with comments...But I (professionally...) wasted my completed morning on buying streets in my beloved Antwerp. Fascinating to see how quickly the streets were being bought by the gamers in a matter of hours.
Simple idea: combine Monopoly and Google maps and play it live across the planet. The world as a board game!
So...make me an offer I can't refuse for some damn fine virtual real estate in Antwerp...
