Do you have a big pile of Monopoly money in the center of your game board? Do you get to collect it when you land on Free Parking?  Did you know that’s not an official rule? Monopoly players have come up with a lot of their own rules throughout the years, and Hasbro is giving players a chance to help shape the new Monopoly rulebook!

 

In a press release last week, Hasbro announced they would host a “House Rules” debate on Facebook with Mr. Monopoly as the moderator! Facebook Fans are encouraged to debate the pros and cons of 10 rules that have been chosen from crowdsourcing fans through Facebook.

 

 

The “House Rules” included in the Great MONOPOLY “House Rules” Debate are:

 

  • Free Parking, Fast Cash: All taxes and fees will be collected in the middle of the game board, if you land on Free Parking, it’s your lucky day: collect all the money from the middle of the board.
  • Dash for the Cash: Landed on Go! Amazing, you get to double your salary – 400M Dollars instead of 200M Dollars.
  • Frozen Assets Rule: When in jail, a player cannot collect any rent money from other players. Sorry about your luck.
  • Lucky Roller: Did you just Roll Snake Eyes (double one’s)… odds are in your favor, collect 500M Dollars.
  • 3’s a Crowd: Are there 3 players in a row on 3 unique properties? Well done, each player gets an extra 500M Dollars.
  • Cash Advance: Don’t have enough to buy Boardwalk? With this House Rule, players can make loans between each other to co-own properties. Who collects rent money? That’s determined amongst the new property owners!
  • Break The Bank: At the start of the game, leave half the money in the bank. Then mix up the other half of the money in the center of a board. On the count of 3 every player grabs what they can! Free-For-All!
  • Mum’s the Word: Mum always gets out of jail free. Always. No questions asked. She’s just that special.
  • See the Sights: Players must travel around the board one complete time before they can begin buying properties. Hurry up and get to GO before everyone else!
  • Property Boom: Anxious to begin building? We hear you- with this rule, players do not have to own a complete set of properties before they start to build houses.

 

Smart move, Hasbro! Not only are they allowing fans an opportunity to share the Monopoly rules, but they are also generating a lot of buzz and excitement around a product that’s been around for ages!
