Hasbro tried exposing Monopoly cheaters. But now they're catering to them instead

"Insider" reports the new game will include several tasks for players to complete.

Cheaters can even try to steal money from the bank without having to keep an eye on the banker, Metro reported.

Moving another player's token instead of your own on your turn.

The makers of Monopoly have announced the introduction of a cheaters' version of the classic property board game later this year.

A new twist on an iconic game is coming to a store near you this fall.

Fans are encouraged to play dirty in this game, but they don't want to get caught.

As if this wasn't going to complicate matters enough (and mean everyone wants to endlessly count their money in case of theft) but there is no longer a designated banker.

Federal Bureau of Investigation raises 'grave concerns' about GOP intelligence memo, warns against its release
The Justice Department sent a letter to Nunes last week calling the potential release of the memo "extremely reckless". What's more , Nunes might have consulted - indeed, colluded - with the White House in drafting the memo.

Not only will you watch it, but you will probably pick a team and root for it, because again, we are Americans. Belichick went the typical route of concealing his plans, then shut down the question with a "next".

Unfortunately for Towers and the rest of his family, Towers would die just 14 months after being diagnosed with the cancer. During his tenure, Towers helped the Padres landed Greg Vaughn, Kevin Brown, Adrian Gonzalez and Heath Bell, among others.

Each board comes with 15 cheat cards detailing specific cheats, five of which will be in play and placed in public view for all players to take part in.

And while the object of the game is still to end up with the most money at the end, the new edition will make it significantly harder - as the game encourages cheating as many times as possible during the course of the game.

All of this is facilitated by two changes to the traditional game: the addition of "Cheat" cards amongst the Community Chest and Chance cards and the loss of one, important rule-enforcer.

The first version of the board game was called "The Landlord's Game" and was supposed to show the unfairness of private property ownership. News of the Monopoly Cheaters Edition was first published by The Insider. Cheaters who are caught might have to go to jail, go directly to jail, do not pass go, do not collect $200.

In a final blow, Hasbro has chose to release the game ahead of Christmas 2018.

The game ditches houses entirely (because why settle for less than a hotel?), and adds a handcuff for chaining red-handed cheaters to the Jail space.
