Why plan Monopoly over a little board and pieces of plastic when you can grab your phone, get off your arse and take over the real world?
Turf Geography Club is an iPhone game currently in development that combines geography-based app FourSquare with Monopoly’s “take over the city” mechanic. The more you get around, the more gold coins you amass. The more coins you have, the more properties you can buy, or the more you can upgrade the ones you already own (and get coins when other people visit).
The game’s creator, Michael Tseng, reckons he needs $US15,000 to turn this concept into a commercial product, so he’s started a Kickstarter page to get things moving.
