Family game night almost always turns into "Family Feud", at least when the game Monopoly is being play. Someone is always trying steal a few bucks when no one is looking or even before the game even begins!
Hasbro has announced that they will are releasing a special edition of the game that encourages cheating!
While the object of the game remains the same (to have the most money at the end of the game), the way you can make money is a little different.
This edition of Monopoly, comes with 15 cheat cards, in addition to the original game's Community Chest and Chance cards.
Some of the cheat cards include:
- Stealing money from the bank.
- Stealing money from another player.
- Moving another player's token on your own turn.
- Stealing a title deed from either the bank or another player
- When in Jail, taking off the handcuff.
Yes, you read that right. It says "handcuff". Oh forgot to mention, if a player is caught cheating, you could be thrown in the slammer. Which doesn't sound too bad except in this game, if you're in jail, you must wear the handcuffs which keeps you chained to the game board letting everyone know, you're a hardcore card criminal.
Not everything about cheating in this game is bad, you do receive rewards for completing any of the tasks. Each cheat card has rewards and punishments on the back side.
If you love Monopoly and find yourself cheating during the family game night, this new edition may be right up your alley.
