Hello and welcome to OFFICIALLY the first edition of this fiendish crossover! :D

I've changed a few things from the pilot edition, scaling the property prizes and rewards/penalties down to old-school Monopoly prices to make the end-game bonus a bit less lucrative. This details the new rules:

NOTE: Reverted to 'old monopoly' prices after Pilot game

AIM OF THE GAME:

So, onto the idea of the game! The aim to FULLY COMPLETE AND RETAIN set(s) up to Hotel status for money bonuses at the end of the main game of deal. The twist is that sets will only be gradually revealed when amounts are ELIMINATED from the board with picks! So, losing £100k and £250k early might not be the worst thing overall, as it could enable you to build on, effectively, "Park Lane" and "Mayfair" premium squares. More of which later...

THE DICE:

So, after each round of picks, the player HAS to roll two dice (random.org will determine what is thrown). After the first round, this will happen immediately, in further rounds, the decision as to whether to roll or build first may prove crucial. But for now, the player rolls and the sum of the dice leads to the following scenarios:

2: CHANCE - (optional) The player announces a set they think they will complete/retain after the final roll of the game. If successful, they receive DOUBLE the value for that set. If unsuccessful, they lose £1,000 from their prize fund (and it IS possible to have a negative amount overall at the end of the game, in which case they cannot play Box 23)

3: INCOME TAX - Lose £200 from your bank. This may lead to a negative value.
4: ELECTRIC COMPANY - Let there be light! Button is ACTIVE (No change if already activated)
5: WATER WORKS - Receive £50 for each blue left on the board
6: STATION - Add a station to your portfolio! The more you get, the better your end of game bonus will be:
1= £100 2= £500 3= £1,500 4= £3,000
7: ADVANCE TO GO - Receive £200 to your Bank.
8: COMMUNITY CHEST - Receive £500 to your Bank.
9: BANK ERROR - Doubles current amount in Bank. This is why it *can* be advantageous to hold on to money rather than spend it immediately!
10: AMNUITY MATURES - Receive £100 for each red left on the board.
11: SUPER TAX - Lose £100 from your bank.
12: GO TO JAIL - ALL built Houses/Hotels are re-possessed (lost!) and your bank is cleared out to recompense bail money! :P

NOTE: If you owe money, but have insufficient funds in your bank, you will need firstly raise funds from demolishing houses, at £25 a time. If there is still a deficit after that, this will result in a negative amount with the remainder.

EXTRA NOTE: You may choose to roll the dice again before the subsequent round.

Phew! :P Right, now we understand how we can acquire money to the bank (and indeed lose it!), now to explain how it is spent!

THE BUILDING:

Each house costs £50, regardless of property, £25 if required to demolish; so you won't get much value out of the "Old Kent Road (1p)/ Whitechapel Road (10p) positions by completing them to hotels, but conversely a lot of value out of hotels on Park Lane/Mayfair positions! (£3,500 for £500 investment, rather than £700 for the same investment on the Brown set... but largely depends what is available as to your choices! ;) )

Money in the bank is only acquired from the side-game - you CANNOT use money from an early deal in the main game, for instance, to fund your building for this part. It's all about getting the balance right between the two gameplay elements in this twisted version! :lol:

At the end of the main game, any money left in the bank is added (or subtracted if a negative value) to the main game winnings, plus the value of any stations acquired.

We'll see how it goes in due course! Hopefully people will be brave enough to have a go! :smt023


You have Box 17.

First 5 boxes please! :smt023

A slightly below average start, so the banker doesn't need to trouble 5-figures here...

BANKER'S OFFER

£9,000



Firstly, DEAL OR NO DEAL?

I'll also do the first roll, as you need to get some money in the bank, so here goes...

You rolled 2 dice:

6 5

Timestamp: 2016-01-06 16:45:15 UTC

That's Super Tax. OUCH! Not a great start... Your bank is in the negative now at -£100... :smt009

Also, 7, 13 and 15 will be my next 3 boxes.

Hopefully I'll find the £1 and £50,000 in this next round.

Out of curiosity, if I GO TO JAIL with a negative balance, does it still get reset to £0? :ponder: :P

In that scenario, I think your balance would have to remain in the negative, as it's not 'realistic' to reward a player for going to jail! :lol: :P

Actually, a fairly average kind of round, just with a nasty sting in the tail, so the banker will choose the median of the amounts eliminated...

BANKER'S OFFER

£10,000



Here comes your next roll..

You rolled 2 dice:

4 3

Timestamp: 2016-01-06 17:06:27 UTC

Excellent news! Advance to Go. That gets you back to £0 in the bank! :P

A great offer for this risky board, but odds are in my favor to keep the Top 2 another round so NO DEAL and ROLL AGAIN.

21, 22 and 20, please.

The banker concedes he got lucky there. However, the prized PURPLE set is now exposed, and things could change around quickly. For now, he isn't too overly concerned though...

BANKER'S OFFER

£4,000



While you're deciding on that, let's go for a roll...

You rolled 2 dice:

6 1

Timestamp: 2016-01-06 17:18:23 UTC

HA! We seem to be in a bit of a loop here! Back to £0! :lol:

By the way, might be a good time to remind you that now, if you need to demolish any houses to raise funds, you'll only get £25 for each one...
