Exhibitors from 54 countries to attend ICE 2011

The organiser of the annual International Casino Exhibition (ICE), Clarion Gaming, has announced that next month’s event will feature exhibitors from 54 nations, which is more than double the 26 seen at November's Global Gaming Expo (G2E).

ICE 2011 will take place from January 25 to 27 at London’s Earls Court Exhibition Centre with Clarion describing it as ‘the most comprehensive and international business-to-business gaming event on the world stage’.
Clarion declared that ICE 2011 would see more than 400 companies active in the online, mobile, betting, bingo, casino, lottery and street gaming sectors occupy in excess of 20,000 square metres of stand space to deliver ‘the most comprehensive insight to the latest gaming innovations from every corner of the world’.

“This goes beyond just exhibition statistics,” said Kate Chambers, Show Director for ICE 2011.

“In real business terms, it means that whatever's taking place in the entire world of gaming will be demonstrated by exhibitors at ICE. This is, of course, great news for our many thousands of visitors who themselves travel from in excess of 100 countries to be in London.

“The very clear message is ‘come to ICE 2011 and see the world of gaming’, which combined with the breadth of gaming sectors on show represents an intoxicating business proposition and one not to be missed.”

Profile

Monopoly is a board game published by the Parker Bros., an imprint of Hasbro. Players compete to acquire wealth through stylized economic activity involving the buying, rental and trading of properties using play money, as players take turns moving around the board according to the roll of the dice. The game is named after the economic concept of monopoly, the domination of a market by a single provider.

According to Hasbro, since Charles Darrow patented the game in 1935, approximately 750 million people have played the game, making it "the most played (commercial) board game in the world." The 1999 Guinness Book of Records cited Hasbro's previous statistic of 500 million people having played Monopoly.[2] Games Magazine has inducted Monopoly into its Hall of Fame.

Spinoffs

Film

On June 19, 2007, Ridley Scott announced that he was directing a comedy-thriller based on the game, featuring a variety of young actors to generate interest in the game. Scarlett Johannson and Kirsten Dunst have been considered so far.[30]

Computer games

Besides the many variants of the actual game (and the Monopoly Junior spin-off) released in either video game or computer game formats (e.g. Windows-based PC, Macintosh, Game Boy, Game Boy Advance, Sega Genesis, Commodore 64, etc.), two spin-off computer games have been created.

Monopoly Tycoon is a PC game in the Tycoon series that makes strategy and speed into determining factors for winning the game, eliminating completely the element of luck inherent in the dice rolls of the original. The game uses the U.S. standard Atlantic City properties as its basis, but the game play is unique to this version. The game also allows for solo and multiplayer online games.

Monopoly Casino is also a PC game, simulating a casino full of Monopoly-based adaptations of various casino games (most notably, slot machines). This program was released in both standard and "Vegas" editions, each featuring unique games.

Monopoly: Star Wars is another PC game based on the standard Monopoly board but with Star Wars characters and locations.

On April 23, 2008 Electronic Arts announced that they would be releasing in Q3 2008 a new version of Monopoly for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 2 and Wii video game consoles.

Other board/dice/card games

Parker Brothers and its licensees have also sold several games which are spinoffs of Monopoly. These are not add-ons, as they do not function as an addition to the Monopoly game, but are simply additional games in the flavor of Monopoly.

* Monopoly Junior board game: A simplified version of the original game for young children.
* Advance to Boardwalk board game: Focusing mainly on building the most hotels along the Boardwalk.
* Express Monopoly card game: Released by Hasbro/Parker Brothers and Waddingtons in the UK in the 1990s, now out of print. Basically a rummy-style card game based on scoring points by completing color group sections of the game board.
* Monopoly: The Card Game: an updated card game released by Winning Moves Games under license from Hasbro. Similar, but decidedly more complex, gameplay to the Express Monopoly card game.
* Free Parking card game: A more complex card game released by Parker Brothers, with several similarities to the card game Mille Bornes. Uses cards to either add time to parking meters, or spend the time doing activities to earn points. Includes a deck of Second Chance cards that further alter gameplay. (Two editions were made; minor differences in card art and Second Chance cards in each edition.)
* Don't Go To Jail: Dice Game originally released by Parker Brothers; roll combinations of dice to create color groups for points before rolling the words "GO" "TO" and "JAIL" (which forfeits all earned points for the turn).
* Monopoly Express: A deluxe, travel-able edition re-release of Don't Go To Jail, replacing the word dice with "Officer Jones" dice and adding an eleventh die, Houses & Hotels, and a self-contained game container/dice roller & keeper.[33]
* Monopoly Express Casino: A gambling-themed version of the above game, that adds wagering to the gameplay.
* Here and Now Electronic Edition: Destroys the need for money, using credit cards instead. (Credit: Wikipedia).
