    Monopoly have released an official “Cheaters Edition” of the classic game. Fast Company has more:


    “We’ve had this data for years. 50% of all Monopoly players cheat,” says Randy Klimpert, Hasbro’s senior director of design and games development. This fact of life was always something of a running joke within the walls of Hasbro. It became the giggly fodder of proposed ad campaigns. Employees got a kick out of listening to the messages left on its holiday helpline, established in 2016, to help families settle disputes in their games and address accusations of creative cheating. “We were literally sitting around thinking, ‘what would really corrupt Monopoly?’ And someone said, ‘what if we cheated?’”

    My favorite Monopoly tip - jail is bad in the beginning, good at the end.

    It's true. You can't be forced to pay people if you never leave jail.

    After reading the title, I thought this was a Cheaters TV show version of Monopoly.
