I don't get it, is this going to be a click and wait for the page to refresh type of game like mobsters on myspace? Do you guys think it will take any skill?

Strategy will be the skill...if you're expecting something similar to the 360/PS3 game, you'll be disappointed.

No, I was just hoping for something better than most app "games" that are really nothing more than glorified Monopoly. If it takes some skill I'll probably get into it.

You obviously are unaware of the skill and strategy involved in Monopoly. It's not just a roll the dice and buy game. Man, I used to own 4 or 5 books on Monopoly strategy when I was a kid. I could tell you the percentage of times that you're likely to land on a property and which properties would bankrupt your opponent quicker.

I laughed at the morons that wasted their money on Park Place & Boardwalk.

I started playing like a month ago. I wouldn't say its a game that takes skill I've just been mastering moves and making the games version of cash to unlock more camps and equipment. its really just a point and click game. and the moves you use in a "fight" are randomized so you don't know what you will get or when. its a good way to waste time if you need to but theres really no skill involved.

Awesome. Another annoying game/app to block.

Who the hell finishes a game of monopoly? I'm sure there's strategy involved with buying the properties that people are more likely to land on and there's probably a formula for how many houses and hotels to build on a given property for the greatest chance of winning, but none of these things change the fact that the game is a long, boring battle of attrition. By the way I just played the game and it seems like basic resource allocation with really no play involved where the fights are concerned, so for now I must say but I'll play it a few more times before panning completely.
