Don’t have anyone to play board games with over the holidays? Now you can enjoy one of the biggest by yourself with the brand-new Monopoly game for iPhone and iPad.

It takes the timeless classic, enjoyed by more than a billion people worldwide, and brings it to life in your palms. And it’s exactly as Hasbro intended it.

Monopoly has been ported to almost every platform in some form or another. This isn’t the first time you’ve been able to enjoy the game on iOS. But the newest version might be the best yet.

It takes original the original Monopoly experience — free from unnecessary frills — and makes it playable any time, anywhere. And it doesn’t include a single ad or in-app purchases.

A spectacular return to iOS

We’ve all played Monopoly before, so you will know exactly what to expect from the game on iOS. You’ll be buying, selling, and scheming your way to riches using the same gameplay and rules.

There are some advantages to playing on iOS, of course. Monopoly is brought to life in an animated 3D city that looks terrific. And there are several game modes to enjoy depending on how you want to play.

In addition to traditional Monopoly with common house rules, there’s a quick mode, online and offline multiplayer, and a single-player option in which you compete against AI rather than real rivals.

The game includes the largest number of localized game boards any digital Monopoly has ever offered. So you can enjoy familiar locations, or go exploring to discover different cities.

The new Monopoly game is compatible with both iPhone and iPad, but sadly not Apple TV. It’s a $3.99 purchase, but for that you get the full game, with nothing locked behind additional purchases or a single ad.

You can download the game from the App Store now.
