Everyone likes board games! Among them, one is king, and it’s pretty tough to beat when it comes to video game renditions of these American classics. I’m talking about the one and only Monopoly, a game that everyone knows. It’s time to take those hotels into the digital realm, friends!

Still, there are enough good points to at least keep you plugging away for a while.

Read on and remember to say your prayers and eat your vitamins!
