About this project

(Formerly Foursquaropoly!)

Remember sitting around the table, cards in-hand owning your 'rents in trivia or taking grandma to the bank to cash in? Board games hold a special place in our hearts but we don't get to enjoy them so often in this digital age. This is the 21st Century dang-it! We have cars that fly! (Oh wait) OK they can't fly but if you can order Sushi from your phone, you should be able to play a board game when and where you want.

Jump out of your time capsule and into Metropoli— a gaming app that uses Foursquare to make you the game piece and your city the board. Boom baby! Grandma would be so proud! (If only she knew what Foursquare was.)

We need your help in making Metropoli come to life. We're raising $12,000 to pay our developer (code man, code!), rebuild & manage the Metropoli website and get you kids the game as fast as we can! 

We'll be launching in New York city first— following cities world wide.

And yes! BOTH iPhone and Android platforms will be supported!
