- Depending on the number of entrants, each table will have 5 or 6 players.
- Players will be ranked in order of finish for each round.
- A player’s money total after each round will be determined by adding all money and possessions when time is called.
- A score of 1 will be assigned to the winner of the game.
- The highest number score will be assigned to the player with lowest money total or to the first player to go bankrupt.
- Tables for Round 1 and Round 2 will be determined randomly.
- Place finishes from Round 1 and Round 2 will determine the tables for Round 3.
- A player’s money total at the end of Round 1 and 2 will be used in the case of a tie.
- We play by the “Nice Rule” – you pay for the rent of the properties you land on, even if the owner of the property forgets to ask for payment.
- Immunities are not allowed. (For example: “I’ll trade you this property if you don’t make me pay when I land on it the next 3 times”).
- No advice giving.
- $500 and all tax money are placed in the middle of the board.
- If a player lands on “Free Parking” he or she wins the money in the middle of the board.
- If a player lands on the 10% or $200 tax spot, he or she must pay $200.
- Each player is given $1500 at the beginning of the game (Two $500s, Two $100s, Two $50s, Six $20s, Five $10s, Five $5s, Five $1s.
- The buying and selling of houses does not have to occur on your turn, but rather, can be done at any time during the game.
- Each game board must have exactly 32 houses and 12 hotels.
- When a player rolls doubles on the 3rd roll when in jail, the person moves no matter what. If they roll doubles, they move and do not pay the $50 (They do not roll again even though doubles were rolled). If the player does not roll doubles, they pay the $50, then move.
- When a player lands on a utilities spot, they do not roll again, but instead, use the first total of the dice.
- If a player lands on an available property and chooses not to purchase it, the property is auctioned off to the highest bidder.
- Auctions are held for individual houses or hotels if there is a shortage. The winning bidder must pay a minimum of the price stated for houses and hotels for that property’s card.
- You can trade mortgaged property. It just needs to be treated as still mortgaged.
- There are no side deals when a person is going bankrupt. The person may only be in transaction with the player who is bankrupting them.
- Mortgaged properties at the end of the game are worth 1/2 the price.
