All normal rules of Monopoly apply, except where modified below.
The ruleset says that a player advances around the board by rolling 2 dice. Rolling the dice introduces a large amount of luck, both in the early and in the later stages of the game. This variant changes the way of movement, allowing players a greater amount of skill than in the standard game.
This variant greatly changes the relative value of the
streets, as players are usually able to avoid the hotels on the most expensive
streets. In fact, rule 5, stating that a player receives new cards only when
he has played all his cards, was added because of a player has 4 cards all
the time, the high prices never will be paid. But when a player is down to
1 or 2 cards, he may be forced unto a square he would certainly have avoided
if he could.
