Admit it, you've been there.

You make an impulse purchase of an obscure game, open it up and read the rules, and then the shock hits -- "HEY, this is just Monopoly!"

This is a list for those roll-and-move games heavily inspired by Monopoly, whether they are straight rip-offs or cleverly disguised homages.

This is also a list for all Monopoly variants and expansions, official and unofficial alike!

Note: Please do not add any of the zillions of official Monopoly theme editions - those can be covered in another list! (Or found through a simple name search.)

"Economic game. Buy properties (hotels, restaurants, theaters, trading firms, industry), build subsidiary and enterprise, collect rent from fellow players. Repeat as necessary until everyone else is bankrupt."

"Players take turns in order, with the initial player determined by chance before the game. A typical turn begins with the rolling of the dice and advancing their piece clockwise around the board the corresponding number of squares."

"If a player lands on Surprise or Notice, they draw the top card from the respective pile and obey its instructions. If the player lands on an unowned property, whether hotel, restaurant, or industry, he can buy the property for its listed purchase price. If he declines this purchase, the property is auctioned off by the bank to the highest bidder. If the property landed on is already owned and unmortgaged, he must pay the owner a given rent, the price dependent on whether the property is part of a set or its level of development."

Da? Nyet?

"It's Monopoly with a chav twist. Spaces include - Scruffy Maisonette, Vandalise Bus Stop, and V.D. Clinic - apply cream twice a day."

"Chav is a derogatory term applied to certain young people in the United Kingdom. The stereotypical 'chav' is an aggressive teenager or young adult, who often engages in anti-social behaviour."

No pictures on BGG yet, but this one seems to have been influenced by Monopoly...

"Each player comes to Hollywood with $3,500 in script money. He may increase this amount by working at one of the four big studios on the board, or by leasing one of the popular nightclubs or restaurants and charging the other players a good price for every stop they make there. When one player has made enough by clever plays to purchase the Santa Anita Race Track, he can operate it at a pace that will quickly make him winner of the game."
