Ages 10+ 2 - 6 Players
Cheat to get ahead fast - and try to catch other players cheating - as you buy Property, collect rent and stack up the cash! The game ends when all Properties have been purchased and each player has made it back to GO. Then the player with the most cash wins!
But WAIT! It's not a free-for-all. Cheat cards and sneaky Chance and Community Chest cards will tell you when and how to cheat. All other cheating is off limits!
For those of you who really want to see what you can get away with, once you're familiar with the basic game, check out Ultimate cheater's mode at the end of this game guide.
What's different about Monopoly Cheaters Edition
These are your invitation to cheat! They'll be placed on the board for all to see and, at any time, any player can try to complete a cheat written on one of the cards.
If you can pull one off without getting caught, you'll be rewarded. If you get caught, you'll be penalized, of course!
Instead of choosing one player to handle the Bank, you'll pass around the Bank tray so each player has it in front of them during their turn.
Watch out for sticky fingers!
Tricky Chance and Community Chest Cards
These are designed to help you get ahead - or set another player back - cheater style. Bribe the judges at a beauty contest, send another player to Jail for no reason, or force another player to charge a reduced rent on their Property.
A Cheater's Gameboard
There are no utilities or taxes, the stations aren't for sale and you may notice that changes have been made to some of the Property values.
As you read these rules, you'll also notice that there's no mortgaging and there aren't any Houses, just Hotels, because cheaters like to start at the top.
You can be sent to Jail for all the same reasons as in regular Monopoly, but you can also be sent there if you're caught cheating.
When you're in Jail, you have to wear the handcuffs!
