Monopoly – The Rules of the Game

Monopoly is a board game that involves players buying and trading properties, building houses and hotels, and collecting rent from other players. The goal of the game is to become the wealthiest player by accumulating the most money and assets.

To begin the game, players choose a game piece and place it on the board’s “Go” space. The board consists of 40 spaces arranged in a grid, with each space representing a property that can be bought, a special action that must be taken, or a penalty that must be paid. Players then take turns rolling two dice and moving their game piece around the board.

When a player lands on an unowned property, they have the option to buy it. The cost of the property is displayed on the space. If a player chooses not to buy the property, it is put up for auction and all players can bid on it. Players can also buy properties from other players at any time during the game.

Once a player owns all of the properties in a color group, they can begin building houses and hotels on those properties. This allows them to charge higher rent to other players who land on those spaces. The number of houses and hotels that can be built on each property is limited, and players must pay to build them.

When another player lands on a property that is owned by another player, they must pay rent to the owner. The amount of rent is determined by the type of property and the number of houses and hotels on it. If a player lands on a property and cannot pay the rent, they must sell properties or mortgage them to raise the necessary funds.

The game ends when one player has gone bankrupt, which means they no longer have any money or assets. The remaining player with the most wealth is declared the winner. In the event that more than one player is left in the game when another player goes bankrupt, the player with the most wealth wins.
