Monopoly Is Releasing An Edition Just For All You Cheating Cheaters

Rae Batchelor 6 May 2019

There are some people you just can't play Monopoly with. They probably call themselves opportunists, but the more accurate word for them is cheaters.

Fortunately for all the opportunists out there, there's a new Monopoly edition coming out with you in mind.

According to Business Insider, the new game has all kinds of cheating built right into it.

The point is still to end the game with the most money, but there's a twist: In addition to Community Chest and Chance cards, there are cheat cards. They encourage you do to things like steal money from the bank, take a hotel from another player's property and put it on your own, or move someone else's token on your turn. If you get away with it, you get a reward. If not, you go to jail AND wear a handcuff.

For the most part, it looks like people are excited for the new challenge to this old, classic game.

It should be more lively because everyone will have to be actively on the lookout for cheating, while also trying to get away with as much as they can themselves.

Who knows, maybe it's enough to get people to actually finish a game for once.

We all get dragged down after a while, don't we? Maybe the thrill of the grift will be enough to keep our interests.

Still, some folks have to wonder if a special Cheaters Edition is enough of a twist on the old formula, given all the cheating that happens regardless.

Although if that's the case, maybe they should try playing with different people. I know I've never cheated at Monopoly.

Or at least I've never gotten caught.
