Hasbro will release Monopoly – Cheaters Edition this fall.

The new version of the classic board game was unveiled by Insider this week. "A recent study conducted by Hasbro revealed that nearly half of game players attempt to cheat during Monopoly games,” Jonathan Berkowitz, senior vice president of Hasbro gaming told Insider.  “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."

The objective of the game is still to end the game with the most money, but how players get the money is a bit different. Players are encouraged to get away with cheating – skipping spaces, sneak bills from the bank, and avoid paying rent if other players aren’t paying attention. The game adds a stack of 15 cheat cards, 5 of which are placed face up in the middle of the board for any player to try to fulfill (steal money from the bank, take an extra $100 from the bank when passing go, pay less to another player than owed, remove a hotel from someone else’s property).

Successful completion of the tasks is rewarded (move to next unowned property, take the title deed; collect $100 from the bank) while if the player is caught, there are consequences (the player’s token is taken and put anywhere on the board that the victim wishes; return stolen money, go to jail). The game board has also been “hacked” so with new prices on them. Also, to make things fair, there is no designated banker, the player who’s turn it is controls the bank, when their turn ends, the bank duties pass to the next player.

The game is for players ages 8 and up, and MSRP is $19.99.
