Breaking out the Monopoly board has been a family tradition for decades. Also part of the tradition: not finishing the game because you’ve run out of time!

There’s another way around the board. With brilliant tweaks that keep it fast, fun and authentic, Monopoly on the App Store is a winning investment. Here are five reasons you’ll love rediscovering your inner tycoon with this super-slick mobile version.

Classic tokens? Check!

1. It’s easy!

Whether you start a pass-and-play game with fellow board game fans at home or compete online, setup is a breeze. Select your rules, fight over who gets the top hat token, and you’re off. And no more designated banker duties – finances are handled automatically, leaving you to wheel, deal and bankrupt anyone in your way.

2. It’s quick!

Can’t wrap up a game in one sitting? Just pause and come back later. Or better yet, play a zippier version of the game with rules designed to speed things up (cheaper hotels, no taxes). Your accountant will need to find another gig.

3. It’s customisable!

Monopoly’s rules haven’t changed much since 1935 – so why not tweak the rule book? Collect $400 (instead of $200) for landing directly on Go. Or get out of jail after just one turn.

Leave flat properties behind – this digital board is bursting with life.

4. It’s beautiful!

The digital version has an enchanting visual flair. Little trains chug into a tunnel, and tiny helicopters dot the sky. Animated tokens merrily “tink-tink-tink” past properties. There’s even a police siren when you get hauled off to jail!

5. It’s expandable!

Tired of the same old sights? Optional add-ons let you try new tokens and themes, like a snowswept ski resort. Grab the Explorer Pack to unlock more than 30 international board variations. In France, Boardwalk is called Rue de la Paix. Ooh la la!
