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."
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.
