We all know and love Monopoly, it could be the most iconic board game ever created, and we all know who Mr Monopoly is!

Well, if you want to torture your family on the go, there are plenty of great Monopoly games on Switch and mobile.
Our guide to Monopoly games features some great translations of the original classic, as well as a few twists on the formula that may surprise you.

It’s time to roll the dice, walk that dog around the board, pass GO, and head straight into our Monopoly games guide.
Monopoly for Nintendo Switch – Switch
The original, the classic. They say if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, and let me tell you… This right here is some classic Monopoly. It’s super easy to use the Joy-Cons to share the game between local friends and family, there are three different boards to explore, and there are a few handy features thrown in. You can speed up the gameplay with action cards, or the ability to play the (much speedier) first-to-hotel option. Having this loaded up on your Switch is an instant party, and the great port makes it essential for any board game fans out there.
Monopoly Madness – Switch
Time for something a little different. If you’re tired of the normal formula, Monopoly Madness is an interesting and frantic twist. Mr Monopoly is going on holiday (or wants to retire, either way, he’s relaxing) and wants somebody else to take over the Monopoly empire. Here’s where you come in, as you and several other players fight for fame and fortune, by exploring an open level, collecting resources, and using one of the twenty new characters. If you want something a bit looser than regular Monops’ then this just might do the trick.
Monopoly – Classic Board Game – iOS
It’s the classic formula, but now in your hands. Plus not everyone owns a Switch, so playing Monopoly on your mobile device could be a great option for you. This port also features online play, so you can battle it out against friends and family anywhere in the world. Got that one friend you haven’t seen in a few years? You can truly end the friendship once and for all by absolutely decimating them with hotels. The port itself is clean with a nice interface, and it works well across iPhones and iPad with a UI that scales well wherever you play.
Monopoly Tycoon – iOS
Have you heard about Rollercoaster Tycoon? well oh boy, have I got a wild concept for you. Imagine that, but Monopoly. BAM, you’ve got Monopoly Tycoon baby. The Monopoly board has come to life, and you’re responsible for looking after the entire town and making the city itself flourish. Manage your properties, make smart deals, develop in the right places, and see if you have what it takes to become Mr Monopoly himself.
A nice mixture of two classics, Monopoly Solitaire uses the bones of the classic card game that has been on every Windows PC for 30 years and slaps on the property management excitement of Monopoly. This free-to-play lets you enjoy endless solitaire levels, but if you don’t play your cards right, you can land in jail. Collect properties, buy houses and hotels, and use your solitaire skills to pay your rent and win the game.
Alright you Monop-heads, hopefully, we’ve given you plenty of great ways to play the single best board game ever created (except for Mouse Trap). If you want something else to play today, be sure to check out our guides to the best mobile games of 2022 next.
