MONOPOLY PHOTO GALLERY
You are a real estate tycoon trying to make a boat load of cash. You and other players will move around the board buying as many properties (Streets, Railroads, and Utilities) as you can. The more you own, the more rent you’ll get. If you’re the last player when all other players have gone bankrupt, you win!
We have not reviewed this game yet but this is a well-known classic and you probably do not need us. It is a polarizing game. Some people love it, but a lot of people really hate it.

MONOPOLY HOW TO PLAY
Each player chooses a player trinket to mark their space. Starting on the “central” Go space, everyone rolls 2x 6-sided dice progressing them further that many spaces with the intent to land on unowned properties so they can buy them. By paying the listed buy price, you can charge rent if any other player lands there. Rent becomes substantial when you own all three of a property group and can build houses and hotels. Once you go bankrupt, you are you out.
