It’s always good to establish ground rules when playing a board game like Monopoly – unless you are playing Monopoly Cheaters Edition. In this take on the popular property trading game, players are not just allowed, but encouraged, to bend the rules and bluff their opponents to win. 

Monopoly Cheaters Edition

Editor’s Rating:

In a few words

The Monopoly game where rules are meant to be broken.


Have you ever tried to win Monopoly by cheating? Well, now you can. In Monopoly Cheaters Edition, your party can go wild with legit cheating. Bend the rules, borrow money, and make funny business! In fact, you can draw cards that will tell you which cheats to attempt. From faking a die roll to stealing from the bank, and even skipping your rent! Those who cheat will earn great rewards, but those who fail the cheats will suffer miserably. Get away with as many cheats as you can, or you may find yourself chained to the Jail space with plastic handcuffs! 

What’s Included

A standard set of the Monopoly Cheaters Edition Board Game includes the following: 

  • game board
  • plastic handcuff unit
  • 6 tokens
  • 15 Cheat cards
  • 16 Title Deed cards
  • 16 Chance cards
  • 16 Community Chest cards
  • 16 hotels
  • 2 dice
  • money pack
  • bank tray
  • game guide


For those who love classic Monopoly and want to take it to the next step, Monopoly Cheaters Edition offers an exciting fast-paced game that often finishes much quicker than classic Monopoly. The game ends when all the properties have been purchased and all player tokens have made it to Go. Cheating means that you do not have to wait for all properties to be purchased the conventional way, as some players may try to nab them straight from the bank! 

The game can also be played like a normal classic Monopoly game if you and your opponents do not wish to engage in cheating. Short of missing houses, everything else is just the same as classic Monopoly and can be played as such. At $19.99, this game is a great deal when it’s on offer even if you just want to play it like normal Monopoly.


Although the concept of cheating during Monopoly makes for an interesting game, there is also the issue of trust and betrayal. If you are on thin ice with an opponent or know that they may take comments personally, it may be best not to play the cheating too high so as to end on a good note. Depending on the group dynamic, the cheating element may not be appropriate at all – especially if there are players who are opposed to the system or find it too complicated. 

Also, it can be very difficult to multitask as all players must concentrate on watching one another carefully. This means that people who are less engaged in the game may be left out, and things like television or snacks will probably be out of the way. The game does finish much faster than classic Monopoly. In case of playing just one or two rounds, there should be plenty of time left for other activities. 

Overall Review

On the whole, we think Monopoly Cheaters Edition will make for a great game night – if you and your opponents are able to take a few hits. Understandably, the game can get very heated and end in arguments or fights. If you and your friends are the type that loves to joke at each other’s expense, then we are sure that Monopoly Cheaters Edition will fit right into your repertoire. 

Additionally, there is nothing to lose by getting this game since it can be played just fine without the cheating element. If you decide that the cheating is not suitable for your group, simply put the cheat cards aside and ignore all prompts to do so.
