Gaming location-based mobile applications are certainly on the rise. Earlier this year PSFK wrote about the World of Warcraft meets Foursquare app The World of Fourcraft.
A new Foursquare app is set to bring a board game favorite to the mobile gaming world. Foursquaropoly turns your city into a Monopoly board and your Foursquare check-ins into a gaming piece. Players begin with ten-thousand dollars and can buy unclaimed buildings they check-in to using Foursquare. Rent and upkeep fees are determined by the building’s popularity and are payable by the owner. Just like the original Monopoly game, players who ‘land’ in a claimed location must pay rent to the virtual landlord.
Originally a student concept, the app is currently in development.
