Monopoly Go is a free-to-play abstract strategy casual board game that features stylized graphics, the classic Monopoly Board where you can roll dice and move your piece to earn money, shield, attack other players' boards, perform bank heist, pay taxes, and other such things.

The game also features a city building where you can use the money earned from the Monopoly Board to build new structures, upgrade your town, and eventually increase your net worth.

At the core, there are two things that you can do in Monopoly Go. First, enjoy the class Monopoly Board experience while earning money.

Second, use that money to become a tycoon, build new structures, upgrade iconic buildings, and do other similar things to eventually complete a board and move to the next one, which in simple words, is moving to the next city to buy stuff there.

To summarize things, here are some of the features that Monopoly Go offers:

  • Classic Monopoly Board and rolling dice.
  • Building new structures (owning buildings)
  • Upgrading structures
  • Stealing money (heist)
  • Attacking other players' boards
  • Collecting cards
  • Winning awards and other achievements
  • Exploring different cities
