Last week we reported on the upcoming launch of Monopoly City Streets, a browser-based version of the classic board game that used Google Maps as the basis for the streets (including possibly your street and address). Since then the game has launched . . . and in doing so has hit a small problem; it's just too popular.
According to the game's official blog site, traffic for Monopoly City Streets has been far above their expectations. Their own stats say the game has gotten 1.7 million visitors "but the figure is likely far higher". As a result the development team has been doing some improvements on the back end and they plan to reset the entire game sometime this week.
