GtkAtlantic is a client for playing Monopoly-like board games on monopd servers.
The goal in playing Atlantic is to 'Get Rich Quick and Win!' The richest player is the winner :) In order to win, you need to buy properties quickly and profitably. (To succeed, you need at least one set of the same group of properties, so that you can build Houses and ultimately Hotels upon them.) Play begins from 'Start' square. Players move their tokens about the board by clicking the 'Roll Dice' button. When a player lands on an unowned property, he may 'Buy' it from the bank or put it up for 'Auction'. When a player lands on a property owned by another player, he must pay rent to the owner. Building houses or hotels dramatically increase rents payable - so much so that it may force other players to declare 'Bankruptcy'. To raise money, you can mortgage any owned property to the bank. The 'Chance' and 'Community' squares give you a card whose instructions must be followed. Sometimes you are sent to Jail! :(
Atlantic is a game that combines subtlety and a sense of business - a good mood helps if you are losing! :)
