I have always been a fan of Monopoly myself, and while nothing quite beats the standard board game in my opinion, this new version certainly looks to provide yet another classic spin on the age old favorite (especially with the turning table top option, which sounds pretty awesome for those who care not to constantly spin the device). Monopoly Here & Now: The World Edition is now available for the device at a price of $9.99. Check out the official page for the game here.
