Monopoly Live in the UK

You have 24 hours... or so the headline goes on top of Monopolylive.co.uk. This interesting twist on an old board game allows players to play monopoly in real world London. Real live cabs are given Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and are tracked during a 24 hours period. In the game you pick a cab and join 5 other players. If another player's cab stops at your property (you are given 15m euro to buy properties) they pay you rent, if your cab stops at a property that you do not own you must pay rent. The game ends after 24 hours. This is an awesome look at where gaming is going. This cross between reality and virtual is just plain cool.

I am putting a house up on Wimbledon.
