The introduction of a Cheaters edition to the Monopoly franchise is kind of a massive deal. I mean, we've all bent the rules a little bit over the years, haven't we? Some of us more than others! The Cheaters Edition is the game in which all manner of sneakiness is actually welcome, and I think we can safely say, it's the board game we've been waiting for.
While it is not due out until later this year, we've tracked down where you can get your pre-orders in (for a cracking price) right now!

How To Play Monopoly Cheaters Edition
Obviously, this is the game where cheating, lying and deception are encouraged. It's the opportunity to put into play all those schemes you conjured up over the years - like stealing from the bank, or pinching a hotel. We've all done it.
There are a few chances to the game we all know and love. In this edition, Cheat Cards join the Community Chest and Chance cards, encouraging players to carry out cheats without getting busted. If they pull it off, bonus cash and properties will be earned, if they fail they could either go to jail and be literally handcuffed to the board, or be forced to pay up.
A few other changes to the regular game include cheaper properties, and doing away with a banker role. In the Cheaters Edition each player with conduct their own banking at each turn - and the mischief will be rife!
What do you think? Is this a must-have game in your house?
