Monopoly

Monopoly City is based on the most popular board game ever, Monopoly

The original game is named after the economic concept of monopoly, the domination of a market by a single entity.

Monopoly is the most commercially-successful board game in United States history, with 485 million players worldwide.



Monopoly Game - Basic Details

The box should contain a game board, two dice, play money, 32 houses, 12 hotels, 11 tokens, a stack each of Chance and Community Chest cards, and a Title Deed card for each property.

First you need to distribute the money. Each player gets two £500 bills, Two £100 bills, Two £50 bills, six £20 bills, five £10 bills, five £5 bills and five £1 bills for a total of £1,500.
Then you need to choose a playing piece from options like the iron, the battleship, the car, etc.

Aim of the game is to become the owner of all the properties and the richest person there. Basic idea is that you throw the dice and move around the board. You can buy a property from the Bank, if you wish, when you land on it. If you opt not to buy a property on your turn, the Banker may auction it to the highest bidding player. Bidding can start at any price and anyone may bid on the property.

Tip of the Game is really to own a complete street (or many streets) , Like Bow Street, Marlborough Lane and Vine Street as then you get more rent when opposition players land on your property.
HINT: Don't forget to collect your salary of £200 from the Bank every time you pass or land on Go.

There are also chance and community chest cards which you collect if you land on those spaces. Note that Chance cards are sometimes bad as they also include two 'PAY RENT on your houses and hotels'.

Win the game by snapping up all of the property on the board, ruining the other players and acquiring more money and assets than anyone else.

NOTE: There are many variations that can be played for Monopoly, including A Timed Game (decide before how long you are playing and then work out who is richest to decide who has won).

Monopoly City is played in a similar fashion, but with certain changes and extra features which make it more up-to-date and challenging. As with monopoly there are variations, the main one being the Timed Game, since the game can go on a long time sometimes!

If you have played a lot of monopoly maybe it is time to try this updated version.
