Hasbro is giving Monopoly fans around the world an opportunity to “break the rules” by inviting them to help select the top ‘House Rules’ to become a part of future Monopoly games.

Hasbro, maker of the classic board game Monopoly, conducted a survey to proof the obvious. Most Monopoly players have their own set of rules. The so called house rules are used by almost half of Monopoly players in the US.

Now some of these homegrown rules will make it in future Monopoly releases. Starting now through April 3, the Monopoly Facebook page will host the Great Monopoly House Rules Debate, with Mr. Monopoly as the moderator.

Fans are encouraged to debate the pros and cons of 10 ‘House Rules’ that were selected as a result of crowdsourcing fans globally on the Monopoly Facebook page. As a result of the debate, Hasbro will identify the top ‘House Rules,’ and incorporate them into the Monopoly: House Rules Edition game available this Fall. The chosen rules will also be included in the classic Monopoly game guide in 2015. While the official Monopoly rules will not change, fans who love playing with ‘House Rules’ will now have the opportunity to play them in their game. 

The House Rules included in the Great Monopoly House Rules Debate are:

Free Parking, Fast Cash: All taxes and fees will be collected in the middle of the game board, if you land on Free Parking, it’s your lucky day: collect all the money from the middle of the board.

Dash for the Cash: Landed on Go! Amazing, you get to double your salary – 400M dollars instead of 200M Dollars.

Frozen Assets Rule: When in jail, a player cannot collect any rent money from other players. Sorry about your luck.

Lucky Roller: Did you just Roll Snake Eyes (double one’s)… odds are in your favor, collect 500M Dollars.

3’s a Crowd: Are there 3 players in a row on 3 unique properties? Well done, each player gets an extra 500M Dollars.

Cash Advance: Don’t have enough to buy Boardwalk? With this House Rule, players can make loans between each other to co-own properties. Who collects rent money? That’s determined amongst the new property owners!

Break The Bank: At the start of the game, leave half the money in the bank. Then mix up the other half of the money in the center of a board. On the count of 3 every player grabs what they can! Free For All!

Mum’s the Word: Mum always gets out of jail free. Always. No questions asked. She’s just that special.

See the Sights: Players must travel around the board one complete time before they can begin buying properties. Hurry up and get to GO before everyone else!

Property Boom: Anxious to begin building? We hear you- with this rule, players do not have to own a complete set of properties before they start to build houses.

The MONOPOLY: House Rules edition will be available on store shelves in select markets this fall and will include special golden-colored houses and cards that highlight the top House Rules.
