Monopoly: The Mega Edition is bigger and believe it or not, faster than regular Monopoly. What makes it bigger is a larger board, Train Depots, Skyscrapers, 9 new Properties, and the addition of the $1,000 bill. It is faster because of a new speed die and Bus cards. Monopoly: The Mega Edition can be played in 1½ hours with more fun than ever!
The massive game board has 12 additional spaces, including 9 new properties. You’ll be able to buy, for the first time: California, Florida, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, South Carolina, and Arctic Avenues, plus the Gas Company. Each joins an existing group.
Buy all the properties of a group, build your houses and hotels, and then keep on going by building Skyscrapers for a chance to earn “mega” rents. Good news: you can build houses and hotels once you own three out of four properties in a group (or two out of three in the smaller groups). You can even build a Depot on a railroad to double its rent.
Start play with $2500, including a $1,000 bill.
Roll three dice on your turn: two regular dice and the special “Speed” Die. The Speed Die gives you a chance for free trip to the next unowned property. (Later in the game the Speed Die could send you to the next property you owe rent on. Ouch!) From time to time you’ll earn free “Bus Tickets.” Use them to go where you want to go, but beware: they expire! The Speed Die and the Bus Tickets make the action speedy, intense, and sure-fire fun!
Buy more property, buy more buildings and handle more cash in this Mega Edition of the family favourite Monopoly game. The huge gameboard has 12 extra spaces, including eight new streets – one for every colour group. There are also skyscrapers you can add to your streets so your rents will rocket sky high, and if you build depots on your railway stations, you get double rent! Monopoly: The Mega Edition is quick and easy to play and comes with new opportunities and higher risks.
How to Play
Each player starts the game with 1500 Monopoly Dollars. Who goes first? Each player rolls both dice, the highest roller takes the first turn. On your turn roll both dice and move your token clockwise around the board the number of spaces shown on the dice. Take action depending on which space you land on. So, if you pass the Go space, collect 200 Monopoly Dollars from the Bank or if you land on the Go to Jail space, move directly to Jail and do not collect 200. When you finish your move and action, pass the dice to the player on your left. Trade, buy or sell with other players. Be the only player left in the game after everyone else has gone bankrupt.
