Xbox Games with Gold titles Calico and Monaco: What's Yours is Mine are only available to claim for a couple more days before they are replaced with a fresh batch of games for September... grab 'em while you still can!Calico and Monaco: What's Yours is Mine are both set to be cycled out of the Games with Gold lineup on August 31st, with Microsoft set to announce September's games — along with another batch of games coming to Xbox Game Pass — in the next few days, so we'll find out soon what their replacements will be. ScourgeBringer, meanwhile, is still hanging around for a couple more weeks, with September 15th the last day you'll be able to claim it.
Calico is a day-in-the-life community sim game where you are given an important and adorable task: rebuild the town’s cat café and fill it with cute and cuddly creatures! Build up your café by filling it with cute furniture, fun decorations, yummy pastries, and get it bustling with animals again!
Monaco: What's Yours is Mine
Monaco: What's Yours Is Mine is a game about heists. Assemble a crack team of thieves and execute the perfect crime.Play as The Locksmith, The Lookout, The Pickpocket, The Cleaner, The Mole, The Gentleman, The Hacker, or The Redhead. Infiltrate with smoke bombs and wrenches or wreak havoc with shotguns and C4.Monaco supports single player robbery, same screen co-op party play, and online crime sprees. One last heist and you can retire in style.
Calico sees you running a cat café and its achievement list is pretty straightforward, with a completion estimate of around 6-8 hours. Monaco's achievements, meanwhile, aren't quite so gentle, with every mission in the heist game required to be played at least twice in order to do them all both solo and co-op, deathless, and clearing out all the loot. Fortunately, we do have a walkthrough for Monaco that should help, but you're still going to need to find yourself a crew if you want the completion, and given that it was a late Xbox Live Arcade release, there's only 400G up for grabs. Still, the estimate sits at 20-25 hours if you do fancy ticking this one off.
Even if you're not immediately interested in either game, there no harm in any Gold members adding these to their library before they disappear — you never know when you might need a game like one of these for a community event or monthly Target, so it never hurts to have these 'free' games in your pocket in case you ever need them.
Any guesses what might replace Calico and Monaco when September's Games with Gold drop any day now? Let us know!
