Monopoly is a board game which you will find in many households. It is a game which can be a lot of fun or it can cause many arguments due to players losing out on money or feeling as though they are being conned by other players, especially the “banker”. The point of the game is to earn as much money as you can from investing the money that you have into property around the board so that if your components land on your property they will have to pay you a fee in the form of rent. You can purchases houses and hotels to increase the rent value, ultimately raising your more money. If players do not have enough money to pay you then they can declare themselves to be bankrupt, which means they are out of the game, unless they can raise money by mortgaging or selling property. By the end of the game whoever has the most money and the most value in the property is deemed the winner of the game.
