Free Monopoly Games
If you have lots of friends or a large family and are looking to play Monopoly together, you must have all the appropriate materials. However, not everyone has all of the materials needed. Fortunately, there are a variety of online options that can be accessed on the Internet.

This flexibility includes the ability of the players to play in a short game format or even a tournament style format.

Middopoly has the same rules used in a standard game of Monopoly. These rules includes the purchase of properties, collecting rent, buying houses and hotels and other standard features. Some of the spaces have been changed, however. For example, a hospital is in the place of the prison and there is a student parking lot instead of Free Parking.
In Middopoly, the values of each property remain true to the original board game. The values of random cards and the Community Chest are the same as the standard cards of a monopoly game, which makes it a very accurate simulation of the standard Parker Brothers' Monopoly game.
