What It Is
With Monopoly Deal, the popular Monopoly board game can be played in less than 20 minutes and on the go. Monopoly Deal is a card game in which a player can lose his entire fortune in just one turn. The object of the game is to collect and trade property cards to be the first player to acquire three property sets. (A set would be all three yellow card properties, for example.)
Each player gets five cards. On your turn, take two cards from the draw pile and add them to your hand. Then, you can play up to three cards from your hand. You can either put Money/Action cards into your own bank, put down properties into your own collection, and/or play Action cards into the center of the playing space. Action cards allow you to charge other players rent, steal their cards, or demand money for your birthday.
The game comes with 110 cards and instructions. It is for two to five players.
