Hasbro launches Monopoly powered by Google Maps and SketchUp


Earlier this week, Hasbro, a global toy maker, announced the launch of a digital version of the board game Monopoly that uses the Google Maps APIs and Google SketchUp to construct 3D buildings.

While much of the media created the idea that the game would work in partnership with Google, Hasbro clarified that the application was all built by the team of the Tribal DDB agency in the United Kingdom. “Did Google help us? Of course, they have been great and have helped us with all the support we needed on the project ”published the company.
