The rules differ a bit, however, because of the presence of the Mr. Monopoly token and the sore loser coins.
It is a good idea to familiarize yourself with the rules of classic Monopoly before learning the rules of Monopoly for Sore Losers. So don’t hesitate to read the detailed rules of Classic Monopoly.
As its name suggests, Monopoly for Sore Losers helps sore players. This is done by introducing the sore loser coins and Mr. Monopoly token to the game. Sore losers will have a little better luck during the course of the game.
At the start of the game, all players receive 2 sore loser coins. The rest of the coins and the Mr. Monopoly token are placed in the center of the gameboard.
There are several ways for a player to collect a sore loser coin. A player collects a sore loser coin if they:
Pay any rent.
Pay any of the various taxes by landing on a tax space.
Go to jail.
Land on one of their own properties.
Land on a space that has the Mr. Monopoly token on it.
Draw a chance or community chest card that tells them to collect a sore loser coin.
Land on the Free Parking space. This allows them to steal one sore loser coin from any other player.
When a player collects 4 sore loser coins they return the coins to the center of the board and become Mr. Monopoly. They become Mr. Monopoly by taking the Mr. Monopoly token from the center of the board and replacing their token with it.
The player who has the Mr. Monopoly token gains major advantages:
When they land on a purchased property they collect the rent from the owner of that property instead of paying it to them.
When they land on a tax space they collect the tax from the bank instead of paying it.
When any player rolls doubles on the dice (including the player who has Mr. Monopoly themselves) the player who has Mr. Monopoly can place a house on any property for free even if the property isn’t part of a complete color set.
When they land on a space that has another player on it Mr. Monopoly covers their token. The player who has Mr. Monopoly then steals one of the players they’re covering properties (they take their title deed card). Mr. Monopoly can’t steal a property that’s part of a complete color set, though. The player whose token is covered by Mr. Monopoly can’t move until Mr. Monopoly is no longer standing over them.
When a player has the Mr. Monopoly token and another player collects 4 sore loser coins, the latter now takes possession of the Mr. Monopoly token and the former is back to their ordinary token. The 4 sore loser coins are of course returned to the center of the gameboard.
The game ends when all players except one have gone bankrupt. The one remaining player is the winner.
