The best version of Monopoly I’ve ever seen is the Lord of the Rings version.
One die has the Eye of Sauron instead of a one. In addition, it comes with a One Ring replica. The ring travels across the board, starting at Bag End (first purple) and ending at Mount Doom (Boardwalk). The ring progresses one property each time anyone rolls the Eye of Sauron. When the ring reaches Mount Doom, the game ends. While the ring is on a property, and someone lands on it, they either get it for free if it’s unowned, or, if it’s owned by another player, they pay double what they would have otherwise.
That’s it. That’s all the differences, and that alone makes the game both much more fun, and way shorter.
@I Are Lebo, i had the Simpsons edition when growing up
@I Are Lebo, that sounds amazing, I need it
@I Are Lebo, Cheaters edition is my favorite, it is so chaotic and as much fun to play as it is nerve racking. My family has never finished a game because we spend so much time both trying to cheat and to catch the other Cheaters you get around the board maybe twice. Those two times around the board are a wilde time...
@I Are Lebo, I have it! It's fun!
@I Are Lebo, that sounds neat and I don’t even like lord of the rings. Stealing this as house rule now.
@I Are Lebo, the pokemon edition is my favorite. There’s nothing different about it, but when you draw a card there’s a chance that team rocket might show up. Then me and my friend do the chant. That too makes the game much shorter.
@dandyhandy, that sounds like it would make the game longer
I never play with free parking rule. It makes games last too long and is not in the rules of the game
Y’all do realize normal monopoly only takes like an hour right? Free parking is just a free space, you don’t get money for landing on it.
Monopoly already takes forever
Bankruptcy should not be the get-out-of-jail-free card that it is in America.
Gotta say monopoly is probably one of the worst board games I’ve ever played, it’s crazy how many good board games are out there that people have no idea about.
The Monopoly that lasts so long, the living will grow to envy the dead
