Monopoly Rules Quiz: How Well Do You Know the Rules of Monopoly?
When was the last time you played Monopoly? After a player chooses their game piece, they get to roll the dice and quickly find out what kind of Monopoly game they’re going to have. Some games of Monopoly mean that bad luck will catch you and not let go until you have nothing but mortgaged properties, abandoned houses, and returned hotels–not to mention rolling doubles three times in a row and getting sent to jail.
But, there are worse things in Monopoly, like having to pay the $50 fine to get out of jail because your ability to roll doubles seems to have disappeared. Meanwhile, while you try to get out of jail, all the other game players keep passing go and collecting $200 to help them buy all the properties on the board and build houses or hotels on them. Even with all that stress, knowing the actual game rules can also be an issue.
Do you think you know the official rules of Monopoly well enough to ace our quiz?
The game rules of Monopoly are quite simple. Each player rolls a dice and, depending on where their game piece lands on the Monopoly board, can end up picking a Chance or Community Chest card, collect Free Parking, go to jail, buy the property they land on, or pay rent. Just make sure you do not roll doubles three times in a row, or you'll have to forfeit your next turn to sit in jail. You'll stay there until you can pay the $50 fine or roll another double. The only way to win is when a player owns so many houses and hotels on the game board that no other player can afford to pay rent.
Although it was invented in 1903, Monopoly was not sold on a broad scale until the Parker Brothers bought the rights to it and began marketing it in 1935. Over the next 85 years, Monopoly would go on to sell nearly 300 million copies, making it one of the most popular board games of all time.
