How To Play Mega Monopoly (2010)

good day everyone I'm going to be showing you a game called mega monopoly now most of you I'm sure have heard of monopoly in a play Monopoly this is what is called the Mega Edition and the reason why this game is called the Mega a distance because I've had a lot of stuff and I'm going to go ahead and show you what they've added and just a little bit of how than some of the new rule rules work the first thing you're going to notice is that there is an extra property on each of these color strips over here so for example Brown used to have to now it has three light blue used to have three now it has four and etc so there's about 36 or 37 properties now as opposed to the original 28 of course you've got all your property cards over here the game also comes with this really cool little mini tray and you're going to hate it because there's so much stuff you got all your houses hotels depots and skyscrapers in here which I'll talk about those in a minute and it has the famous $1,000 bill as far as all the pieces goes it comes with all the standard pieces that you would see in a Monopoly game like the Canon this one has the dog the car etc now of course you have your Community Chest cards and your chance cards here and you also have here what is called bus tickets now bus tickets are quite handy and the way you get them is you'll either land on a space that has a bus ticket or you're going to roll the that on the speed die which is another addition which I'll talk about the way bus ticket works is if you roll a bus ticket you can pick up a bus ticket and basically what this is going to do it is going to allow you to move to any space on the side of the board that you are on so for example if you are over here and you have a bus ticket and you decide to play the bus ticket you'll be able to move anywhere from here to here you'll basically use the bus ticket in place of rolling the dice on another turn now there are some bus tickets that says the word expire on them and basically what that means is whenever you draw this or someone draws this all the people's bus tickets that they have in their hand are going to be of no use they're going to expire so they're going to have to get rid of them so this kind of encourages people to play the bus tickets when they have them now we come to the speed dye this pede dye basically is going to speed this game up my wife and I've actually played this game in just over an hour with this thing it has once person here this is a mr. monopoly and this thing serves two purposes if you roll this you'll go ahead and move as you would with the normal dice over here but then after you decide to play a property or so you land it over here you will then be able to move to the next unknown property and purchase that if it gets to the point where all the properties are purchased and you roll this then what you're going to do is you're going to move as you normally with the dice and then you're going to move to the next space in which you're going to have to pay the owner money so for example if I've rolled and I ended up over here and I rolled the mr. monopoly then I'm going to have to move to say Maryland Avenue where the guy it's not mortgaged and then I'm going to have to go and pay that person money so that speeds up the game and as I had mentioned before you have the bus and if you roll this you can pick up a bus ticket or if you wish you can go ahead and move to the nearest chance space or the Community Chest space now if you roll a number on the blue die you will just simply add that number to the roll of the two white dice if you end up rolling three of the same number with all three dice you will then be able to move to any space on the board that you wish as you know the game comes with houses and hotels this comes with two extra pieces it comes with what's called the depot the depot is something you can play on the railroads and you don't have to own all the railroads in order to buy a depot depot cost $100 and basically what it does is it doubles the rent of the railroad so if you own one railroad they go for $25 but if you have the depot on here and you own one that makes it go up to 50 and then you have the skyscrapers skyscrapers can be played if you own all four of the colors in a color group as you know with a hotel if you own three of any one color group you can go ahead and purchase houses and hotels for them with the skyscraper you need to have all four and you have to have hotels on all of them in order to be able to upgrade them the saturator will Jack the price up big-time so as you can see right over here if you with a skyscraper it's just about doubles the price the hotel with the hotel is 1275 with a skyscraper Jackson up the 2275 and those are the basic differences with this game the regular standard Monopoly rules play and again whoever ends up being the survivor of this game is going to be able to win the game as far as my thoughts on this game well I really like this version a lot the speed die really speeds things up and having the extra buildings really acts that is is a cool of features in this game I like the bus tickets for sure because if you end up in a row that has a lot of houses hotels you can use the bus ticket to just zip past all of them and it's a cool version of Monopoly I think it's a rank higher on BoardGameGeek than the other versions so I've got this version of Toys R Us and I think you can still get this in stores so anyway I recommend it if you let Monopoly y'all have a good one you

  1. So you only need 3 properties of the same color to begin putting houses or hotels, but you must need all four to put skyscrapers? And with the monopolies that only have 3 properties (like Mediterranean and Boardwalk) you can put houses, hotels AND skycrapers?


  3. These are very good reviews.
    You convinced me to buy this game and it was 50$ but it was definitely worth it. It adds on lots of things that the other monopolys didn't have.
    Recommend this game to anyone.

  4. I would love to have this. Recently my friends don't want to play monopoly with me. I can tell it's because I win alot. I feel like if I had this, it would be a new challenge to try and learn then master this new monopoly

  5. I don’t have Mega Monopoly I used to play the Original Monopoly with my Grandma Melva but I had to Stop Playing Monopoly Because On January 7th Of this year 2018 my Grandma passed away.

  6. I used to play the Original version with my Grandma but I haven't been able to go play with my Grandma because she passed away this year 2018 on Sunday January 7th

  7. Thank you so much, Board Game Museum, for giving time answering my questions! Now I can play Monopoly Mega with my friends at peace. Haha. You're the best! 😊😍

  8. Last question. Since you just acquired the 4th property from another player and you chose not to build houses/hotel on that property, is it okay that you will mortgage it? Anyway you have your 3 properties with you which you can already build houses/hotels on it. Yet it is said in the rules that you must sell all your houses/hotels in order for you to mortgage a property? I thought about this for awhile.

  9. What if you're the one who owned the property which has the highest rent? Then you land on auction space?

  10. One more question. What if you owned Boardwalk with a Skyscraper (so you are considered to have the highest rent among players) then you land on the AUCTION space. Is that mean you are safe, so you only move forward to your own property which is Boardwalk, right? Or you move forward to another player's property that has the second highest rent let's say in the green site which is Pennsylvania Avenue with a Skyscraper in which you'll need to pay? Because if that's the case so the player who owns Boardwalk will be very lucky? Please, I also need clarification on this. Anyway, thanks for answering! πŸ™‚

  11. So that's the strategy, am I right? So when the 4th property to complete your color set is in another player but you want to have it yet there are no houses or hotels left so it is your choice to get it or not from him/her yet you know there are still no houses/hotel available, right? Because if you really want to get it from him/her so you really need to sell at half price (let's say) your hotels on each 3 properties that you have… considering the even-building rule so you end up with no houses or hotels on your properties, right? So the best way to do is you must've to wait for available houses or hotel first before you get the 4th property from another player… Well, the even-building rule is the only problem here hahaha. Anyway, thank you for giving time answering my questions, I'm subscribing… πŸ™‚

  12. Hello, Board Game Museum! I wanna ask again… What if you don't have enough money for you to build a hotel on the 4th property you just acquire from another player? Considering the even-building rule, so you really have to break down your hotels into houses… What if there are no enough houses left? I'm very confused. I hope you can answer. πŸ™‚

  13. Hello, Board Games Museum! I just got my Mega Monopoly game board and through reading the rules, there are still some questions in my mind that needs to be clarified. I hope you reconsider answering my questions because I love to play Monopoly and having Mega Monopoly is quite very new to me so I need clarifications… My questions are:

    *First, it says in the rules that you can already build houses and hotels (but not skyscrapers yet) whenever you own atleast 3 properties in one color set (at least 2 on colors brown and blue). There goes my problem… If you just got the 4th property from another player (let's say through buying that property or through trading) and I have owned 3 properties let's say on the orange site and I've already built hotels on each of the 3 properties… Do you really have to sell these hotels back to the bank at half-price in order to get houses and re-distribute them considering the even-building rule? Or will you just add up houses on it little by little until it will upgrade to hotels for you to build skyscrapers? With regards to my first question of selling these hotels to get houses, what if there is no enough houses left for you to build? Will you be forced to sell these hotels then you end up with no houses/hotels left on your properties considering the even-building rule?

    *Second, will you still use the speed die when landing on utility? Or will you just use the two white dice?

    *Third, since Bus Tickets are used in place of rolling the dice and it says in the card that you move forward to ANY space on this side of the board, (let's say you are in Reading Railroad but you want to move to Mediterranean? Will you just stick what says in the card that you move FORWARD? That means, you're only allowed to move to the skyblue properties, or the gas company or in the 'just visiting' section?

    *Fourth, there is a new space called "AUCTION" space… What if ALL the properties are owned and there are still no houses/hotels built, then you land on this space, so you move forward to the highest rent, right? That means, you move forward directly to Boardwalk? What if there are houses built in the color red site which another player owns, let's say 3 houses on Michigan Avenue, so obviously, the rent is much higher than Boardwalk which still has no houses… In which property will you be moving? We all know that Boardwalk has the highest rent considering the value shown on its card (so that includes the rent of houses/hotels/skyscrapers when built on that property)… If that's the case, when there are already hotels/skycrapers built on Boardwalk, and when a player lands on Auction space, so he/she will be moving directly to Boardwalk? What if when a player who owns Boardwalk lands on auction space, so he/she is safe on paying its rent? Or will he/she moves to the second highest rent (that he/she doesn't own) in which he/she will need to pay? Let's say the green ones that has already hotels/skyscrapers on it, which has much higher rent than the rest of the color sets?

    "Please reply as soon as possible! I really need your answers for further clarifications. Btw, sorry for the grammar. Have a good day ahead, tho! :)"

  14. What happens if I land on "go to jail" and I also rolled a mr monopoly? Do I get it of jail and mice to the next space?

  15. Why do we get cheated on the money? I play with 8 and there is not enough money to go around so we gotta do change constantly its makes the game take way longer.
