Monopoly is releasing a special edition of the game just for cheaters

News 01/02/2018

Monopoly is the game that can either make or break friendships...

Maybe it's because you've got a mate who always wants to be banker because they like slip'n themselves a few extra notes on the side or your friend didn't pay rent for stopping on your property.

Either way, there's a new special edition of the game that they definitely love to play.

The difference between this version and the OG Monopoly is that the cheaters edition literally wants you to cheat. 

So instead of sneaking that cash when no ones looking, now you're being encouraged to do it. 

Jonothan Berkowitz, Senior Vice President of Hasbro, told INSIDER:

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.


As well as the Community Chest and Chance Cards, this edition will also have 'cheater' cards for players to try fulfill during the game:

If you don't get caught cheating, you can go about your game without going to jail, but get caught and there are consequences on the back of the card.

And if the thought of cheating being allowed watching enough, in this version there's also no banker for the first time ever says Jonothan:

For the first time in Monopoly history, there is no designated Banker. Players are in control of the Bank on their turn, and pass it to the next player when their turn is over, making it easier to pull off ‘cheats’, such as a the Bank Heist.

If you can't help yourself from moving a few more spaces than your dice says, this version of Monopoly is for you.
