A New Game at Jacobs Field

Posted By on Thu, Nov 30, 2006 at 2:21 PM

How much is Jacobs Field worth? According to the new Monopoly Here & Now game for mobile phones, it's going for the bargain rate of $600,000. The popular board game's digital-era makeover comes complete with animated tokens (featuring such 21st-century staples as laptops and cell phones) and new properties, which span N.Y.C. to San Francisco. Our very own Jacobs Field is one of the 22 pieces of virtual real estate gamers can get their greedy hands on. Best of all, that $600,000 price tag is considerably lower than the $176 million it cost to build the thing. -- Michael Gallucci
