Advantages "The World's Most Famous Boardgame"
Disadvantages To some, it's a looong game. Don't overlook its fun!
Monopoly, in my opinion, is absolutely the best board game ever to be made! I love to play this game, as my ambition in life is to become a shrewd businessman. Within this opinion are the HOTTEST, most DEADLY TIPS on ‘HOW TO WIN’. Are you feeling rich today? No? Ah well not quite…If you haven’t ever heard of Monopoly – where the hell have you been for the past years of your life?! Well – for those who don’t know the game, here is a brief summary:
+ [Skip this section if you wish, if you already know the game]
+ [Variations of the game can be found after the basic aim]
The original, ‘English’ Monopoly Board consists of many famous streets and landmarks situated in London. The idea of the game is to go around the board and buy and sell properties in order to gain as much profit from them as possible. The wealthiest player at the end of the game wins. Dice are thrown to determine moves for pieces and players take it in turns to move. Each player is assigned to a sum of money (paper money unfortunately!)Basically, you gain rent for if an opponent lands on one of your owned properties. You can gain more rent from the more expensive properties you purchase, and less so from the cheaper. General properties are grouped in a set of three (with the exception of the cheapest and the most expensive properties at two). Buy claiming the whole of one set, it is possible for that player to double rent, and even more importantly, establish buildings. ~ [Establishing buildings] ~
It is only when a full set of properties is owned, when profits can be maximised from establishing buildings on properties. The more buildings that are established on a property, the more expensive the rent that can be claimed. In the first stage of establishing buildings, one house may be purchased. Up to four houses may be purchased, following a final hotel, which then can be exchanged for the houses (the ultimate architecture).Of course this is quite difficult as opponents are there to do the same. It is down to the players to trade properties and make deals with one another, before crushing the opposition and then gaining the whole of the ~monopoly~.~ [Bankruptcy] ~
You’ve no more money and you owe a player (most probably a lot of money) – that’s it! Your bankrupt, and you’re out of business. In other words – out of the game. All property must be given to the owed player, and then the world comes crashing down on your head. That’s business.
~ [Winners?] ~Who is the shrewdest? Who is the sharpest trader? Who is the most skilled in every way, achieving the highest profits a business could get? All other businesses and opposition must be crushed. Take no mercy. It’s business.
