What's on your mind?
In the game of Monopoly, let's say:
- Player A has $1, many mortgaged properties, no other assets, and their game piece is situated on Mediterranean Ave.
- Player B has $1 and Baltic Ave.
- There are other players in the game, not relevant to this question.
Player A rolls a 1-1 and moves from Mediterranean and lands on Baltic Ave, owing Player A $4. At this point, Player A goes bankrupt, giving Player B the $1 and all their mortgaged properties.
According to the rules, Player B owes money on the just-acquired mortgaged properties from Player A because, "the new owner must at once pay the Bank the amount of interest on the loan, which is 10% of the value of the property." But, because Player B only has $1, and mortgaging Baltic will only yield another $30, Player B does not have enough assets to pay the 10% on all the mortgaged properties she just acquired from Player A.
So, is it true that according to the rules, it is possible for Player A's bankruptcy and transfer of mortgaged properties to Player B to additionally result in Player B's bankruptcy as well?
Hey, guys. I've been thinking that Winning Moves should release more versions of Monopoly: The Mega Edition. You know like for movies, cartoons, etc. What special versions do you think they could make?
I purchased Bunnings Monopoly for my grandsons for Christmas 2 days ago. When we opened the brand new unopened box to play, we realised there were only 12 Green stores instead of 32......and NO Red Warehouses x 12
How do I find them? buy them? have them sent to me by the manufacturers who obviously didnt include them in the game?
Appreciate some help here....useless game without the proper equipment.
I play Monopoly Idle on my 2 home computers. Occasionally when I land on Just Visiting, the game sends me to jail. Is there any particular reason for this?
Calling all serious token collectors -- I've looked into foamcore inserts, broken token boxes, thimble display cases, plastic bags, etc.
Can't seem to find anything that looks organized and presentable -- beyond appearing as a hoarded mess. It's a shame that tokens are made of pewter, otherwise they could rest perfectly on a magnetic surface.
Hoping someone out there is wiser than I am and has figured something out.
Would you be interested in receiving assistance with converting your infoboxes to the new portable type?

So when the chance card of a forced property trade is played, One player forces another to swap a property with them. If the forced player has a hotel on that property, what happens? The rule book says hotels may not be sold. Another rule says that if a chance or community chest card makes you sell or give card to the bank - that the hotel stays on the spot and the next player gets it for free. So can you force a trade and get the hotel with it? Or ..
With some hard work and investigation, I have discovered what makes Monopoly Tycoon crash when it starts up on Windows Vista and later. The Windows Media Source Filter codec was deprecated in Windows XP, and removed in Windows Vista. It is documented heavily on Microsoft's Documentation website in great detail. A manual installation guide is included on my blog in case the Automatic Installer (.bat file) doesn't work properly.
Here is a link to my blog post about how to install the patch/fix step-by-step.
Enjoy the game with working music! ~mrpenguinb
Going to jail after passing through the starting point
I passed through the starting point and ended up at the luck card. The luck card sent me to jail saying not to get my 200. Since I only got the card after passing, should I get my 200 and go to jail, or only jail?
Since the dealbreaker can be used on a set even if the cards are placed seperately by the other player, can a sly deal be used on one of a set if they're placed seperately?
Is anyone here familiar with this pilot for a game show version of "Monopoly"? It pre-dates the short-lived series that aired on ABC (and pilots that were hosted by Peter Tomarken and Marc Summers).
Here it is...
...as you'll see it's obvious it was intended to air on a local TV station in the L.A. area had it bowed beyond the pilot stage.
Viewers would be invited to play the game by calling a certain hotline (one look at "555-1000" should tell you this whole show was for demonstration purposes). Those who got on the air would receive "the 50th anniversary version" of the real Monopoly board game -- which likely means this pilot was recorded in 1985.
Gameplay, basically, would be similar to the bonus rounds of the game show versions of Monopoly that aired later and have since ended. While landing on the "go to jail" space would force a loss, so would a hotel. Depending on which token the player would select, a certain number of hotels would light up on the board. Landing on a space near a lit hotel would mean a loss.
This pilot's host was Rick Dees. If you're a fan of his radio work, you'll instantly recognize a lot of audio bits that were part of "The Weekly Top 40", "American Music Magazine" and his local morning shows in L.A. back in the day.
For game show fans, the first "caller" to play Monopoly was Maggie Speak. I can't say with certainty it's the same Maggie Speak who works on the "Jeopardy!" staff.
For those with sharp ears, yes, that's the voice of Charlie O'Donnell, who'd later announce the short-lived game show on ABC.
Let's say there's four players, and a player with all of their properties mortgaged and $18 cash draws the card that says they have been elected Chairman of the Board and must pay each player $50. The player should be bankrupt, but are they bankrupt to the bank, or to a player? As far as I know, there is no option to be bankrupt to multiple players.
I was playing the old DOS game "Monopoly Deluxe", and this happened to one of my computer opponents...they drew the chairman card and did not have enough money/assets to pay everyone $50. The game handled it by putting that player's cash balance to negative $100-something, but let them continue playing and they kept all their mortgaged properties. I'm guessing the game was not programmed for such an event, so I wondered how it should be handled in real life?
This has existed for, what, how long? And nobody's posted here yet! And yet, now I have!
Do I win a cookie?
hey all, there is one thing that is not clear to me regarding bankruptcy.
in this scenario player A owes player B enough to be bankrupt
as far as i understand it is that if Player Ar does not have enough assets (houses, hotels, morgage-ables) nor enough money he goes bankrupt and gives all his property to player B (he can choose to buy the properties or auction them), but what happenes with player A's money that he had? does it go to the Bank or to player B?
