The object of the game is to be the last player standing.

Lay out the board and each player picks a token and places it on Go. Give each player $1,500 divided as follows: 2 $500s, $100s, and $50s, 6 $20s, and 5 $10s, $5s, and $1s. All the remaining money stays with the game and is called the bank.

One person is the banker and manages the money of the bank, which must stay separate from their player money. Place the property cards, houses, and hotels with the bank.

Each player rolls the dice and the player with the highest total goes first, then play proceeds clockwise.

On your turn, roll both dice and move your token exactly that many spaces clockwise around the board. If you land on an unowned property you may buy it from the bank for the listed price. You receive the property card and place it face up in front of you. If you do not wish to buy it, then the bank sells it at auction to the highest bidder.

If you land on a property that another player owns, pay them rent according to the price on their property card. If they own all the properties of the same color, then you must pay them double rent on unimproved properties. An unimproved property is a spot that doesn’t have any houses or a hotel on it.

If the player does have houses or a hotel, you must pay them the corresponding price. The property owner may not collect rent if he fails to ask for it before the next player rolls the dice. If you do not have enough money to pay another player or the bank, you must sell off your hotels, houses, and mortgage property until you can pay the creditor. To mortgage a property you own, flip it face down and collect the mortgage price from the bank. If a player lands on a mortgaged property, they do not pay any rent and they are not allowed to buy the mortgaged property. To unmortgage a property you must pay the bank the mortgage price plus 10%. Unimproved properties in a monopoly still receive the double rent bonus even if some of the properties are mortgaged.

If you sell and mortgage everything and still don’t have enough money to pay, you are bankrupt and are out of the game. You give all that you have to the creditor. Mortgaged properties remained mortgaged. A player may never give or lend money or properties to another player.

As you travel around the board several things can happen. If you land on chance or community chest, you draw 1 card from its respected draw pile and follow the instructions on the card. If you land on a tax space, you pay the bank the proper amount. If you land on free parking, nothing happens. When you land on or pass GO you collect 200 dollars from the bank. If you land on Go to jail, you go immediately go to jail and do not pass GO and do not collect 200 dollars. If you land on the jail space, you aren’t in jail, but are visiting.

If you roll doubles, you get to roll and move again. Unless this is the 3rd time you’ve rolled doubles in a single turn, then, you go straight to jail.

If you’re in jail, you still are allowed to buy and sell houses, trade with players and collect rent. However, at the start of your turn you may pay $50 to be released from jail. If you do this, pay, then roll the dice and continue your turn as normal. Or, if you choose not to pay, you still roll dice, if you roll doubles you are released from jail and move that many spaces, then your turn ends, you do not get to roll again. IF you fail to roll doubles by your 3rd turn in jail, you must pay the $50 and move the number of spaces you did roll.

During the game you may only trade with other players: cash, “get out of jail free cards”, and properties that do not have any houses or hotels on them. You may not sell buildings to players. You may not trade “free rent” or loan players money. You may not gift players money.

When you own all the properties of the same color you have a monopoly. You are now allowed to build houses and hotels on those properties. The price per house is listed on each property. You must build and sell houses evenly across all properties in a monopoly, you are not allowed to build up or break down just one property. If the bank runs out of houses for you to buy, you must wait until another player sells houses before you can buy houses; or you must buy straight up to hotels. When you sell houses back to the bank, they give you half the value you purchased them for. You may buy and sell houses during your turn or in between other players’ turns…


  1. I was getting Ultimate Banking to play with my kids, so decided to first watch ur videos in that. … Seems hard 😂😂 just watched this one & im definitely buying Classic. It is just straightforward play & rules, same as our rip off monopoly version, Saidina. TQ

  2. My first Variant: Properties can be traded for cash for up to its face value.Get Out of Jail Free cards can be traded for up to $50.I hope you like it! ☺️

  3. And, I got a Special 2V2 rules just for this:All 4 players roll the dice. Highest Roller goes first, second highest roller goes second and so on.If you land on your teammate's property, nothing happens! You're okay! The goal is to either:A. Bankrupt both the opposing team members before your team goes bankrupt; or,B. After all Properties have been bought or a certain amount of turns have been played, be the team that has the highest combined cash.

  4. Never played this game before until today. And I still don't get it

  5. As an adult, this game is a nightmare.

  6. What if someone lands on an unowned property but doesn’t have enough money to buy it? Does it still goes for auction?

  7. After seeing all the difirent new versions the classic one looks blank and soulless….i was gonna get this and seeing how simple and colorless the board looks made me lose the excitement.. Still im gonna buy it tho because someone I play wit alot says we should get the classic because why change something if it's already good.he has a point though, but I just feel something a little more interesting like monopoly empire would be better

  8. I wish I had the new monopoly game with the cat.

  9. What happens if you're in jail but don't have $50?

  10. Awesome tutorial dude, how did you learn to play Monopoly?

  11. I’m am going to play monopoly ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️🧡🧡🧡💛💛💛💚💚💙💙💙💚💛💛💛💛🖤🖤🖤💜💜💜🖤💔💔❣️❣️💕💕💙💚💛🧡❤️❤️you can’t Beat me on monopoly

  12. "If you land on Free Parking, nothing happens."People who never actually read the Monopoly rules as kids: "Wait. That's illegal."

  13. But what if some of the houses r missing in the box… what should i do?

  14. Huh that’s weird, I have Monoploy Rudolf: Rednosed Reindeer collectors edition and the money is dealt out differently. 2 500s, 4 100s, 1 50, 1 20, 2 10s, 1 5 and 5 1s.

  15. I need to advertise with you youtube. Please leave your telegram way. I will pay you

  16. Whoa, whoa, whoa. $300 for Income Tax? No thank you!

  17. There are actually different official rules for the US and the UK.

    In the US Rules, Income Tax gives you a choice of paying $200 or 10% of your total net worth (cash, prices of all properties and cost of all buildings). Additionally, the Double Rent rule for full sets still applies if a different property in the set is mortgaged.

    In the UK Rules, Income Tax is a fixed fee only, and Double Rent is only valid if there are no mortgages in that set.

  18. My winning strategy has always been own what I like to call GO Corner, that is, buying Boardwalk and Park Place, and Mediterranean and Baltic, expand to the 3 green properties, utilities, and railroads if you have the cash and time. Statistically though, at least in my games, you're gonna land on one of those properties around GO! Almost every round, and since there's only 2 to own for a monopoly instead of 3 like most, you start earning max value right away. Then soon as you can, get them hotels up baby! Boardwalk and Park Place, AKA Bankrupting Blue are the game ending landmines for most players. Once my hotels go up there, everyone starts sweating as they round GO! It's the one time landing on the luxury tax space is far and away preferable to the alternative! 😄

  19. Are you flexing an original version of Monopoly?

  20. You probably should see if you can fix your UK edition link. It links to the Dublin version of the game rather than the London version. Great explaination of the rules though

  21. Ahh, Monopoly. I made a specialised rule for this: Players CAN gain other players properties without trading, even with buildings and a complete set. To do so, pay the bank the listed price plus the current rent Times two(so it’s like this:(Current rent you paid to the original owner+Listed Price) X2 to the bank) to break their set, steal their property with the buildings they have, and there you have it, you stole a huge property from them. Now they can’t build any houses and you may be able to charge a huge rent(too bad you don’t have a full set, if that’s the one that completes a set then lucky you, build away!)! It’s pricey, so think twice before doing so! Remember to do it before your opponent’s(that you have paid rent to) turn comes up again, or it’s ineligible to steal.

  22. Most monopoly versions: have most monney/points
    Original: Y O U D O N T W I N, Y O U S U R V I V E

  23. fun fact: you can gift money to a player if they have a property or a get out of jail card through a double trade

  24. How to play Monopoly:Step 1: Literary pay 40$ to buy one or just find one with less price and then regret that you bought this one and not the original one for 40$

  25. POV: you've tried many roles to dice to get 3 consecutive same number dice😂

  26. or…the last player without any injuries wins the game..

  27. The rules have changed slightly in this tutorial.

  28. If you don't have $50 to get out of jail in your 3rd turn. Do you go bankrupt, all your mortgage properties go to the bank?

    When can you unmortgage your properties? Your turn or or between turns?

  29. Excellent tutorial. One other thing that's worth pointing out–the Bank, unlike the players, can never run out of money. If it does, the Banker is allowed to make more by writing on scrap paper. It's like the federal government that way.

  30. If a player asks for rent, and that player gets distracted and doesn’t receive it before the next person rolls, can they still get rent? Because at the end of the day, they still asked for the rent, just like the rules book says you should.

  31. You should make a video playing with someone not teaching. It will be Fun. ;]

  32. Thank you for this tutorial, very informative. Mannnn… looking back at my childhood this is not how we used to play monopoly. My cousins made their own rules. I didn’t know so I followed along 😅 I am wondering how i always lose this game back then lol

  33. Wait. I've always done it as 2x 500, 4x 100, 1x 50, 20 and 5, 2x 10, 5x 1

  34. Did this guy actually rolled three doubles in a row on camera!? 😂

  35. Challenge: win monopoly ethically (pay rent always, no triple doubles, no jail, no selling get out of jail cards). Failing to meet these conditions during this challenge results in instant bankruptcy, returning every bit of money back to the bank, all chance and community chests get returned to their decks from the bottom. All debt is paid to the people you owe.

  36. I just learned this game's origins, and I was like "what were you expecting from a pvp game? For everyone to cooperate?"
