Monopoly is a board game. Before you start playing, set up the board on a fairly large space, such as a coffee table, and each choose a pawn. A player designates himself as a banker (he will run the auctions and manage the money). If there are enough of you (at least 5), he can only act as a banker. He must distribute to each participant:

  • 5 $ 1 notes (there is only monopoly!)
  • 1 ticket of 5 $
  • 2 tickets of 10 $
  • 1 ticket of 20 $
  • 1 ticket of 50 $
  • 4 $ 100 banknotes
  • 2 tickets of 500 $
  • = 1500 $

Once you have chosen a pawn and have your money, throw your dice in turn. Whoever gets the most starts the game.

When it’s your turn, roll the two dice and move to the board. There are several options available to you. You come across:

A property that is not purchased, you can acquire it. But if you don’t want it, it will be automatically auctioned by the banker and will therefore go back to the highest bidder,
A property bought by one of your opponents, you must pay the rent indicated on the corresponding card according to the constructions made on the ground,
The box “In prison”, you are just visiting, nothing happens,
The “Departure” box, you receive double salary (2 x 200 $),
The “Chance” or “Community case” box, you draw a card from the corresponding pile and must follow the instructions on it before putting it face down under the pile,
The “Free park” box or one of your properties, nothing happens,
In the tax box, you must pay the bank the amount indicated in the box.


You can go to JAIL if you fall on the card indicating it or if you fall on the box “Go directly to jail” but not only. Indeed, if you make a double, you can play a second time. But if you roll the dice a third time and it is a double again, then you go straight to prison without receiving any salary, even if you go through square one. It will be up to the next player to roll the dice. To get out of prison, you will have to either:

Pay the deposit of 50 $,

  • Use the “You are released from jail” luck card, which you can buy from an opponent,
  • Make a double with the dice
  • Wait 3 turns, trying each time to make a double.
