The object of the game is to be the first player to collect and lay down 3 full property sets of different colors. Setup: remove the 4 quick-start cards from the deck and hand them for reference. Shuffle the deck and deal 5 cards facedown to each player. Players look at their own cards but keep them hidden from their opponents. Place the deck facedown in the middle of the table as a draw deck. Pick a player to go first, then play proceeds clockwise.

On your turn you draw 2 cards from the top of the draw deck and add them to your hand. You can then play up to 3 cards from your hand. You don’t need to play any cards if you don’t want to. If you have more than 7 cards in your hand at the end of your turn you must discard the extras. If a player runs out of cards during their turn, they pick up 5 cards at the start of their next turn instead of 2.

There are 3 ways to play cards.

First, you can place money and action cards into your own bank. Your bank is a stack of cards in front of you. Every action card has a numerical value and can be placed into your bank for that value. However, once an action card is converted into money in your bank, you cannot use it as an action for the rest of the game. Property cards can never be played or moved to any player’s bank.

Second, You can place properties in front of you into your collection. You don’t need to pay or do anything special to play them. Just lay them down in front of you, overlapping properties of the same color. This is how you collect property sets. Each property tells you how many are needed for a complete set. You do not need to collect different named cards of the same color to make a set, you are allowed to have duplicates. Some properties have two colors. These properties can only count towards 1 color at a time and you must orient them in front of you indicating such. You may only rearrange your properties in front of you on your turn.

Third, you may play an action card to a center faceup discard pile and follow the instructions on the card. If you draw an action card on your turn you are allowed to play it right away as one of your 3 cards or use it later.

When you have to pay another player you must take the money from your bank and put it into their bank or take one of your properties and give it to them, adding it to their sets. Properties used as payment are worth their monetary value indicated on the card.

Cards in play never go back to players hands and players may never pay opponents with cards in their hand. You can pay another player with cards from your bank, or properties, or both. You choose how you’re going to pay, not the player you’re paying.

If you over pay a player no change is given. For example, if a player charges you 2 for rent and you only have a 3 card in your bank and no properties, you must overpay the 3 and you don’t get anything back. While you may choose to overpay with a single card, you cannot willing give charity contributions to opponents by massively overpaying them. If you have no cards in front of you, you don’t pay at all.

If the draw deck runs out of cards, shuffle the discard into a new draw deck. After you play your cards, if you choose to, your turn ends and the next player clockwise takes a turn. The first player to collect 3 sets of properties wins!


  1. I've played this game lots of times but I always have the same doubt.. Imagine you steal a complete set from another player (with a joker or wild card) and you already have a property of that same color. Do you attach that joker or wild card to another set of properties you have or you have to use an action to do it?

  2. Can someone explain to me what the rules are with the action cards? I understand it counts as a turn – but I am just now learning that you can use it later after placing it in the action pile…. so I if I place a “Just Say No” card, I can use it later for whenever I want?

  3. Hello there, I have a doubt?. Can I play a forced deal ( that is swap properties) when I have zero properties On me

  4. If I play a deal breaker and asked my opponent to give me a set of properties, and she/he gave me her set of properties, but after giving her/his set she/he realized that she have a ‘just say no card’ Can she play that against me or it’s too late ?

  5. Can 2 people play this game or it should be a group?

  7. wouldn't be great in a player turn s/he can buy any property from any player even without their permission!

  8. You mean you have to get all cards set to win..

  9. LET’S JUST FIGHT—is how this game usually ends 🤣 fights are worse than Uno tbh. I love it LOL!

  10. Thank you for expelling it but I kinda did not understand it very well

  11. You are going too fast and not allowing viewer time to understand what you are teaching. Thank you but I must find another video reference.

  12. So say someone plays the Go action card, does everyone draw two or just the person that played the card?

  13. What does he mean by if you don’t have cards then don’t pay. Can you choose not to pay?

  14. I still don't understand how to play it 😒

  15. If anyone sees this please don't bank a Sly Deal

  16. Good info but I feel the foundation elements is missing , because of which the explanation doesn't make much overall sense

  17. You are explaining as if we know the game already 😂

  18. When you rearrange the double sided property card does that count as one card played?

  19. I wish I would’ve seen this video before I started playing and finished a game lol. This game is surprisingly fun!

  20. Do you guys think this is more stratergy or luck it's a ongoing argument I'm having with my mates

  21. Nice nicely explained. Just watching your video once, I could understand the rules.

  22. Yeah, I got lost after about 30 seconds into this explanation!!

  23. Amazing video, I have this game but never could understand the game rules n now everything is clear to me thank you 😁👍

  24. I had to watch a few times to get it, but now I got it down. Thanks!

  25. Well, you know, Monopoly Deal and Bid all use cards.

  26. I just found monopoly deal after 1 year that is 2020

  27. Can we play action card before take 2 card during our turn ?

  28. If a player use a deal breaker into a full set with a wild propriety on it, would he be able to take it, or the player with the full property is able to switch the card as he wants?

  29. I played this game monopoly deal I beat my friend said with the deal breaker and the wildnproperty

  30. I have a question.. I've been playing this game a few times and my friend asked me a question saying "Can Wild Property go to the bank?" In which I say, "Every property card cannot go to the bank even though it's a Wild Property card." Is that right?

    Also, how about if we'd steal / swap a property? We can only steal / swap properties that have a name, right? Or can we also steal / swap Wild Properties? Because to my understanding, Wild Properties are just to compliment a Property.. When there's no property, then the Wild Property will be of no use.. Is it right?

  31. You didn't add india amazon in the description :c
