Monopoly Master

Chat - - Game On! -

The clas­sic Christ­mas fam­ily game that not only takes luck, but strat­egy. Or… you could cheat with these sim­ple steps! Make sure you’re the banker and sit in front of the money pile for easy ac­cess. Wear a long-sleeved jumper and, while no one’s look­ing, slip a note up there from the bank. Keep your money pile messy to avoid de­tec­tion when you add your goods to it.

Hide your Com­mu­nity Chest and Chance cards, act happy and pre­tend it’s telling you to take money rather than pay up.

Don’t tell a ho­tel owner you’ve landed on their spot. Keep quiet and com­plain that the game is mov­ing too slowly to make the next per­son take their turn. Keep the ho­tel owner dis­tracted with a long story or a joke.

Ne­go­ti­ate! Do you need all the rail­roads to win the game? Suss out who has them and ne­go­ti­ate a cash deal that works for you both.

Of­fer real-life bribes. In­stead of pay­ing out to a ho­tel owner, of­fer to do the wash­ing up or let them bor­row your fave Christ­mas jumper.… which you just so hap­pen to for­get all about when the game has ended and you’ve won.
