Monopoly is all about strategy, decision making, critical thinking, and foresight, making it a great game for the classroom. Players quickly learn the consequences of their actions and see the dynamics that a single decision can have on the rest of the game.
How to Play
Players start with a budget of Monopoly money and can spend it however they choose as they take turns rolling dice and moving around the board. Players purchase properties around the board so that when other players land on them, they have to pay you rent. Over time, players can upgrade properties with additional houses or hotels, causing rent to go up. Other obstacles around the board can reward or penalize players.
Players discover over the course of the game that they make and lose money in larger volumes, based on their holdings. If a player runs out of money, he/she has to mortgage properties. But once that’s impossible, they are eliminated from the game! The player with the most money and properties at the end of the game is the winner.
Set includes game board, 8 tokens, 28 Title Deed cards, 16 Chance cards, 16 Community Chest cards, money pack, 32 houses, 12 hotels, 2 dice, and instructions. For 2 to 6 players, ages 8 and up.
