Foursquaropoly is a very ambitious project; it aims to fuse so many innovations into one that you may get confused at the mere thought of it! Fortunately, it is done in a very straightforward manner. First of all, Foursquaropoly will be a smartphone tool that builds on Fousquare. Second, it is a social app so you are constantly in touch with your friends.

It is essentially a board game transformed into a real-life game including augmented reality, as well as online earnings transformed into real-life dollars -- I'm not envying the developers, programmers and marketers behind this piece because it must have been a real challenge.

Once purchased, the Foursquaropoly app links to a user's Foursquare account -- each player will start with 100,000 bucks of capital to be invested. Buildings that are not owned can be purchased, and their price is defined by their Foursquare check-in popularity.

The Foursquaropoly game will open completely new perspectives in gaming, smart phones, social media and communication. Stats for Real-Life Board Games Trending: Older & Average
