Foursquareopoly turns Foursquare into a real life game of Monopoly

I’ll be honest… a month ago, I wouldn’t have given two shits about this, but a few weeks ago, me and several co-workers all signed up for Foursquare at the same time and despite its utter pointlessness, it’s also surprisingly fun. But the fun has been in the competition, to see who amongst us can get the most points in a week, get various badges and compete for mayorships. 

Foursquaropoly is a mobile gaming app that combines the Foursquare API with the gameplay of the Monopoly board game (see a video demo). Players can buy and sell Foursquare check-in venues, and collect rent based on the number of check-ins at each property. The app is currently in development, with no release date set.
