The game:First of all you are asked if you would like to run a saved game or new game.
It is basically very similar to a standard monopoly game board but set around an amusement arcade with arcade games that you can 'purchase'. Mr Monopoly begins by asking you to roll the dice which you do by clicking on the dice at the bottom of your screen. He disappears down his hatch and reappears on the game board and with a flick of his hat or stick, he rolls the dice for you.
You then have to move your car along by clicking on the correct square following the correct no of moves. If you get it wrong, Mr Monopoly is very helpful and corrects you until you find the correct square, which is great for the younger children.
There are chance squares where Mr Monopoly goes onto the board and picks up a card for you. They can be anything from more to start or free ticket booths where you claim the coloured arcade game without paying for it.
The ticket booths are the coloured squares that you can land on and purchase if un-owned. These are also what you would charge your opponent on if they land on them.
If you land on an un-owned arcade game, you purchase the square by clicking on your coloured wallet which also at the bottom of the screen. Everybody starts with £31 in their 'wallets'. If you end up owning both coloured squares, you can charge double rent. The rent is the same as the purchase fee.
There are four coloured stations around the board which entitle you to have another go and roll again. There is a go to lunch square where you pay £3 for the privilege. This money goes in to Mr Monopoly's loose change, which if you land on this square, you win his loose change.
There are also fireworks and dolphin show that would also go into Mr Monopoly's loose change.
