Monopoly Party is a board-game-styled video game released in 2002 by Runecraft. The game is based on the Monopoly board game and is licensed by Hasbro.

Play Modes[edit | edit source]

As a new feature usable with the Monopoly Party game, players can choose from either of two play modes: Classic Mode or Party Mode.

Classic Mode[edit | edit source]

In this mode, gamers can play the original Monopoly board game. Players take turns, and game-play follows the Official Rules.

Party Mode[edit | edit source]

In Party Mode, participants all roll the dice at the same time, and tokens then move simultaneously to their destination. Most Classic Mode rules apply, but debts are assessed from richest to poorest. This, however, this can be changed in the Custom Rules menu. Games in Party Mode usually progress faster than games in Classic Mode.

Themes[edit | edit source]

Players can also choose from five different themes: Classic, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Pre-Historic, or Ancient Monuments. In all themes you can choose currency: US Dollar ($), UK Pound (£}, or the European Euro (€).

Classic[edit | edit source]

This is the classic version of the board, with all the regular tokens. While using this theme you can select from a variety of property names like: US, UK, German, French, Spanish, or Italian. This feature is only available with the Classic theme.

Sci-Fi[edit | edit source]

This is a futuristic-like board with a large spaceship in the center. Tokens include a Ground Rover (like a Rover), a robot, a UFO, and an astronaut. Boardwalk is replaced with the Milky Way and Park Place is replaced with Andromeda.

Fantasy[edit | edit source]

This board is guarded by tall towers and creatures of all types in the center. Tokens include a dwarf, an elf, a wizard, and a knight.

Pre-Historic[edit | edit source]

The Pre-Historic board is centered around a watering hole with the occasional dinosaur drinking from it. Pre-Historic tokens include: a caveman, a Woolly Mammoth, and a saber-toothed tiger.

Ancient Monuments[edit | edit source]

If a player chooses the Ancient Monuments theme, they can find many famous architectural wonders, such as the Great Pyramids, Leaning Tower of Pisa, Roman Coliseum, and Stonehenge. Some of the tokens are a Roman sandal, Egyptian skiff, an Urn, and a camel.
