Though the game is just like Monopoly, however, there are prettysignificant differences when it comes to the rules of the virtual version of games;
- The players will have to take turns in order. However, the turn will be randomly determined by the game.
- Like in a typical match, your turn will begin with rolling the dice; you have to move around the board on several squares. Here you have to remember two things;
-If a player rolls doubles, theymust roll again after completing their turn.
-If a player rolls the dice in three consecutive sets of doubles ata single turn, the player has been “speeding” and is immediately sent to jail instead of moving for the third time. A player who lands or passes the red “start” space collects $200. The players can also land on “Income Tax” or “Super Tax” to pay the indicated amount to the bank.
LUCK / COMMUNITY VAULT
Players can also land on Luck or Community Vault; in this place, you have to draw the top card from the pile given to you and follow the instructions. Here aretwo types of cards, “Go to Jail” and “Get Out of Jail Free,”which will be explained below.
When a player is sent to jail, their turn will end.If the player is not “sent” to prison but lands on that “Just Visiting” space, it will incurno penalty and move in the usual manner on their next turn.
A player has to pay $100 to be released, use a “Get Out of Jail” card, or attempt to roll dice double. If a player fails to move, they lose their turn.
If the player instead pays the $100 fine or uses a “Get out of Jail Free” card and then rolls doubles, they are required to move the amount shown on the dice and then roll again.
If the player lands on aproperty they don’t own, be it a street, railroad, or utility; then you can buy the property at the listed purchase price.If the player declines this purchase, the bank will sell the property to the highest bidder, including the player who refused to buy.
Your goal in the game is to acquire as many properties as possible,bankrupting the other players.
Properties can be mortgaged after all houses or hotels built on them are sold.The player will get money from the bank for each mortgaged property; you have to repay it with 10% interest.Houses and hotels arerepurchasedat half their purchase price.
A player who cannot repay the money they owe is bankrupt and will be eliminated from the game, and all the property will be given to the bank.To avoid bankruptcy, the player can sell houses and mortgage properties.Players can also avoid bankruptcy by asking for goodwill loans from other players.
After all, others are bankrupt; The winner is the remaining player left.
