Kapitalist
Board
Score 73%
Description:

Kapitalist is a Monopoly-like board game for 2-8 players. Walk around the board, buy properties, receive rent from your competitors, try to get monopolies to build houses and hotels on them. The goal is to be the richest player on the board and to make your opponents go bankrupt.

The game is divided into a server component, which runs the actual game (desktop independent), and a KDE application (client), with which the players connect to and interact with the server. Alternatively, a server can be started in the background by one client.

Hello I'm an Ubuntu user and I want to build the kapitalist client. I'm using Ubuntu 10.10.

Everything was ok, with the configuration with:

$ ./configure --without-arts

But then trying:

$ make

It gave me the following error:

In file included from /usr/include/fcntl.h:252,
from kapitalist.cpp:34:
In function ‘int open(const char*, int, ...)’,
inlined from ‘bool KapitalistApp::client_start_server_and_connect(const char*, int)’ at kapitalist.cpp:839:

Meanwhile I can use the source package of debian that is posted on:

Maybe I can't compile kapitalist because of a bug under Ubuntu.

I'm recently trying to re-open that discussion at:

I can't really give a good list of pros and cons of Kapitalist vs. Atlantik, since I don't know Atlantik/monopd well enough. It is best to try out both games yourself!

Pros (Kapitalist):
+ can be played "disconnected" (AI player)
+ better look-and-feel (IMHO)
+ customizable field names on client side
+ command line on server and client side (within chat line)

Cons:
- no meta-servers
- limited configuration settings
- not part of KDE

Thanks for the great response. I'll give it a try when I get some time here. Maybe I'll find it better. Looks worth it.

Does it work with monopd servers?

No, it has its own protocol between server and client. I started the project already in 2001 when monopd was in its infancy as well.
