Monopoly's New "Cheater's Edition" Will Finally Let You Play Fairly With Your Thieving Mates

Monopoly Is Releasing A 'Cheaters Edition' For All The Sneaky Players Out There

"Monopoly: The Cheaters Edition" will encourage players to cheat in a new twist on the classic game.

Perhaps the most amusing part, players caught cheating move their token to jail and are physically handcuffed to the game board until they pay to get out, or another player goes to jail.

If a cheating player succeeds at any given task, they get rewarded - but conversely if they get caught, there are consequences which are detailed on the back of the cheat cards. And when games get boring, it inevitably leads to cheating of some sort and in Monopoly, the Banker is the one who can spy the cheater.

Cheater's Monopoly will be released later this year.

Taking an extra $100 in Monopoly money from the bank when you pass GO. The end result of the game is very much the same, with the player with the most money winning. They will add 15 cheat cards into the community chest and chance card deck.

According to Hasbro, nearly half of all players attempt to cheat during the game. They encourage players to cheat in various ways, from collecting rent on another player's property or stealing money from the bank. This makes it easier to pull off cheats such as the "Bank Heist". The news release for the CheatBot also cited the survey that found about half of Monopoly players cheat.

But it was just a few weeks ago that Hasbro announced efforts to crack down on Monopoly cheaters, not cater to them, by introducing the Monopoly CheatBot through Facebook Messenger.

The special Cheaters Edition of Monopoly comes with special rules that which are a cheaters paradise.

The new game will be available in the fall, according to the publication.

Sounds like fun, but let's be real here, I'd still cheat. News of the Monopoly Cheaters Edition was first published by The Insider.
