Step 1: How to Play Classic Monopoly
The objective of Monopoly is to be the person who holds the richest player with the most real estate. You win when you are the last player standing and have brought the other poor players in the game to their knees. Quick breakdown of the Monopoly rules to use as the base for the Monopoly drinking game:
- Everyone starts on the space "Go".
- When you land on a property that is not owned by another player, you can buy it from the bank. The price for the land is on the back of the property card. Once owned, when another player lands on your property they pay you rent, the rent increases demanding on how many houses or hotels are on the property.
- Once you own all 3 colors, now you can add houses and then once 4 houses, upgrade to hotels.
- You can mortgage the property to the bank, the value of the mortgage is on the back and you must buy it back for full value.
- If you land on chance or community, choose the card and complete the action on the card.
- If you roll doubles three times in a row you go to jail.
- Every time you pass go, collect $200.
- If you land in free parking, collect the pot of cash in the middle that all the taxes are contributed too.
- If you do not have enough money left to pay rent and no more properties to mortgage, you must declare bankruptcy.
