'Monopoly City Streets' is a free online game that uses Google maps to let players buy any street in the world.

Players can also set up houses and hotels after buying streets to increase property values. It's turning out to be even more popular than anyone expected, the game's site crashed after its debut and is still pretty slow to upload.

Google says it's trying to upgrade servers to keep up with demand.
