Monopoly is bringing you an edition that WANTS you to cheat

This new Monopoly is quite literally changing the way you play the game!

Let's be honest, we all know someone who is a cheater when playing Monopoly (guilty). The thing is, Hasbro, the makers of Monopoly, know this too. Therefore, the brand then thought why not go ahead and create a cheater's version because it's not like Monopoly gets heated enough already.

The senior vice president of Hasbro, Jonathan Berkowitz explained that "a recent study conducted by Hasbro revealed nearly half of game players attempt to cheat during Monopoly games, 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." Now, this isn't just your normal Monopoly that you just cheat to your heart's content. It has its own set of rules.

Some of these new and improved rules include stealing money from the bank, moving someone else's playing piece, sneaking out of jail and collecting money for other people's properties. However, if you pull off your grand and naughty plan, you totally get rewarded too. But beware if you get caught, there are going to be some consequences.

The biggest difference with this version is that along with the chance and community chest cards, there are the cheat cards shown above. These cards ask players to commit delicious acts of sabotage throughout the game with different prizes or punishments depending on the act. Probably my favourite new addition is the fact that there is a physical handcuff on the side of the board for players that get themselves into a little bit of trouble. It's also fair to say that sneaking out of this handcuff is another sneaky mission for players and serioulsy, just take my money already.
