Description:

Monopoly is a real estate-themed game with a roll-and-move and set collection mechanic. Players take the part of land owners, attempting to buy and then develop their land.

Income is gained by other players visiting their properties and money is spent when they visit properties belonging to other players.

The goal of the game is to force all of the other players into bankruptcy by buying real estate, building houses and hotels and charging rent.

While there's a strong element of luck involved, there's still enough strategy left so skilled players will win more often in Monopoly.

Monopoly has a complex history. It was based on The Landlord's Game (1904), designed and patented by Elizabeth Magie.

Today, the game has been been published in 26 languages and more than 200 million games have been sold worldwide.

By my estimation, around 500 million people have played Monopoly. The game is also the most copied (both authorized and unauthorized) one. Clones pop up all the time and are widely available.

  • Two dice
  • Tokens for each player

  1. Predict your landings

    Knowing what to expect when you roll the dice is an important part of succeeding at Monopoly.

    Most players finish a complete lap around the board in 5 turns.

    You're likely to roll doubles once in those five turns (doubles happen about 17 percent of the time). …



Building houses and hotels

Building advances your ability to bankrupt your opponents. Many players build all they can afford. However, this strategy results in losses when houses must be torn down to pay rents or other penalties often.

You should build when you form the first complete color group.

You should build when you can do so and still be left with enough cash to pay a "high probability" expense - namely, rents on Railroads or Utilities, Luxury Tax, and the "nasty" unexposed Community Chest or Chance cards. $150 to $200 is all the cash you need to hold onto if there are no other complete color groups against you. $300 to $400 in cash is recommended if there are one or more complete color groups developed against you. …
