The Monopoly family branches again, this time building a city on the inside of the board as you play. Instead of property deeds, players acquire permits for the zones marked by the properties in the traditional Monopoly layout. Players build from a selection of 80 3D buildings in the center of the board. Monopoly City still uses "cold hard cash", but also makes use of an electronic device to assert the economic conditions in the game.
Monopoly City made its first public appearance at the Nuremberg Toy Fair 2009.
