How To Monopolize in Monopoly!

Monopoly is a classic board game, but most people misunderstand it. Lots of people think that whoever buys every single property they land on wins, which is the exact opposite of the game. You have to be a careful buyer, and never waste your money on the properties on the first two sides of the board. Those nearly never pay off. Start off with the higher properties, and work your way down to the bad ones.

Another huge thing to do is to build hotels. You can’t pay off a property without a hotel. (well you can but it’s hard) For example, if you buy boardwalk and park place and buy a hotel for boardwalk, if someone lands on it, you’ve paid off everything. If you have 2 of the three deeds for one colour, buy the other one and build houses or hotels. It’s much more worth it.

And if you can, buy all the deeds on one side of the board and put hotels on all of them. There’s no way your opponent can bypass a death trap like that! And don’t be afraid to offer big for properties you need as long as you know it would do you good. A tricky way to offer for a deed is to take two of the worst deeds you own and say, ” I’ll trade you some money and TWO PROPERTIES for that!” And avoid showing them which ones they are specificly if you can.

But remember: never not spend money. You may have more money in the start, but we’ll see who is laughing when I have hotels on all my properties and you have to pay an average of 500 dollars a turn! Probably more…
