The number on the rolled dice will decide the length of your move and the square that you land on will determine your choices. If you land on a property slot and if you have enough money, you can buy property. If your slot asks you to draw from the community cards, then you get an opportunity to see what lady luck has in store for you. The 'go to jail' community card will frustrate you no end and you can only get out of jail if you pay 50 pounds, roll a double, come up with the out of jail card or three turns pass till either of this happens.

 The idea of the game is to win all the money from the other players. The players to go bankrupt keep falling out of the game while those who have managed to build properties and other commercial ventures can take rents and multiply their funds. Every time a player passes the GO slot a sum of 200 pounds is paid to the player as salary. However, the player has to remember to ask for this money.

Despite being a good 75 years old, the Monopoly game board is one that has managed to retain the interests of millions of people. Indeed this gem from Hasbro is the king of board games.
