If you have played Monopoly in your life, you know a cheater or two who plays right on the edge. Those people also go right over the line as well. It appears that Hasbro has made a game for that person. They are now releasing a “cheaters edition” of the game for the people that don’t play by the rules.
What are the differences? They will add 15 cheat cards into the community chest and chance card deck. The different options for cheating will be plentiful. Here is the list of cheats courtesy of Business Insider:
Stealing money from the bank
Placing a hotel on one of your pieces of property
Removing a hotel from someone else’s property
Taking an extra $100 in Monopoly money from the bank when you pass go.
Moving another player’s token instead of your own on your turn.
Giving someone less money than you owe them.
Collecting rent for someone else’s property
“A recent study conducted by Hasbro revealed that nearly half of game players attempt to cheat during Monopoly games, so in 2018, we decided it was time to give fans what they’ve been craving all along – a Monopoly game that actually encourages cheating,” said Hasbro gaming senior VP Jonathan Berkowitz when asked about the release of this edition.
Not many people will go out of their way to play this game, especially when you own it, it admits you’re a cheater. Are you going to trust a person with this in their closet? At this point, the rules just go out the door, and anything goes. You’re only steps away from an anarchy edition of the game.
