After the app is purchased, your account is linked with your Foursquare information.
Everyone starts with $100,000 to purchase their first building(s).

If a building is not owned when you arrive, you have the option to spend your money and buy that property.
Price and fees are determined by the building's check-in popularity on Foursquare.
Within the app you can manage all of the properties you have purchased and use earnings to buy more buildings.
You can also see the earnings of friends and highest earners within your city.
You are able to "Monopolize" your avatar, which can be pushed through to Foursquare and other social networks.
With the earnings from every foursquare check-in on your property, bills can be paid. Failure to pay maintenance will cause the property to be lost and put up for sale again. You can also sell property (at a loss) if you are unable to pay your bills.
We get the city excited for our new app by bringing the idea of a living game to the streets.
