"With fast and furious gameplay, the MONOPOLY Party game is the most fun anyone can have in front of their television," said Nancy MacIntyre, vice president of marketing for Infogrames. "The MONOPOLY Party game creates an engaging atmosphere that allows for fierce competition with friends and family and is a great way to enjoy the holiday season."
The key innovation in the MONOPOLY Party game is same-time play, which allows players to roll their dice and move at once, resulting in fast, high- energy games that invite fans of all ages to wheel and deal together. Players add to the fun by competing against up to four human or computer players.
The MONOPOLY Party game also includes four 3D board game themes -- "Prehistoric" features wandering dinosaurs, cavemen and all sorts of primitive creatures; "Fantasy" includes magical knights and wizards, goblins and fierce dragons; "Ancient Monuments" highlights the wonders of the ancient world including the great Roman Coliseum along with its glorious gladiatorial games; and "Sci-Fi" features a bustling space station with asteroid storms. Each theme comes with unique animated tokens and themed board properties, as well as detailed and colorful graphics in the center of the MONOPOLY game board. Players can also choose to play on the classic MONOPOLY board.
Adding to the fun of the MONOPOLY Party game is the chance to win the 'Ultimate Party.' The grand prize package includes a flat screen TV, Xbox(TM) video game systems from Microsoft for the winner and three friends and $10,000 for everything else needed to throw the ultimate party. No purchase is necessary to win; see www.monopolyparty.com for rules and details.
