Monopoly to encourage dishonesty in new 'Cheaters' edition

Monopoly's New

"We've finally chose to embrace our less-than-honest fans by encouraging them to partake in those iconic (yet sometimes unspoken) Monopoly moments that occur during family game nights", says Jonathan Berkowitz, senior vice president of Hasbro gaming.

The game features naughty tasks to complete, such as skipping spaces or removing another player's hotel from their property without them noticing. And when games get boring, it inevitably leads to cheating of some sort and in Monopoly, the Banker is the one who can spy the cheater.

Monopoly cheaters can finally play the game as dishonestly as they wish - but they'll have to out-cheat everyone else. That's why they're making a special "Cheaters Edition" of the game.

Taking an extra $100 in Monopoly money from the bank when you pass go.

Here's how it works: Beyond the Chance and Community Chest, there are also 15 Cheat Cards in the game.




Outside the new twist, the game's objective will stay the same: the player with the most money wins.

Some of the new changes include the ability to move other tokens instead of your own and pay back people less money than you actually owe, as well as each player now becoming the banker on their own turn. In true capitalist fashion, the objective is to finish the game with as much dough and assets as you can get your grubby little paws on, by whatever means necessary. The game is set to hit shelves this fall. People can use the digital tool, which is available January 16 through February 16, to report players who are cheating, the company said in a statement. That strangely sounds like a lot of fun, but how do you formalize cheating?

Kirsten (@KirstenAcuna) tweeted "Happy to show off the newest addition to #Monopoly this fall - a version of the game just for cheaters".

With all this cheating going on, we're convinced we will be stuck in a never-ending Monopoly cycle.
