Variopoly: The Grand Tour

This variant takes out (most) of Monopoly’s economics, making it a more straightforward race.

You will need

  • A Monopoly set
  • A pad and pens

Variant Rules
All rules are as normal for Monopoly with the exception of the following:

  1. No properties may be purchased in this variant.
  2. Each player must keep a record of all squares on the board visited. (For the purposes of this variant, “Just Visiting” and “Jail” are considered to be one square.)
  3. Passing Go gives only $50, not $200.
  4. No rents are charged, but fines must still be paid. If a player cannot pay the fine, they pay what they have and go to jail.

Winning the Game
Choose one of the following variants:

  1. When all squares have been visited by at least one player, the player to have visited the most is the winner.
  2. When an agreed number of squares is visited, the player to have reached that number first is the winner.
  3. The first player to put together a set of all three of a colour, or all four railway stations, is the winner (for purposes of this variant, the sets with only two properties cannot be counted).
  4. As any of the above, with the added variation that only the first player to visit a square gets to count it.
