Roll Dice

Monopoly Rules

• You do not need to wait for the other player to finish reading before you take your next turn. As soon as you're done reading, go ahead and roll.
• Each property is represented by a shelf. For each grouping of shelves/properties you would read a certain amount of books from that shelf. Once you finish the amount of books you would then “Own” that shelf.
• If you land on an “owned” shelf you would have to read a certain amount of books above what the owner had to read.
• If one person “owns” all of the books in a group (think Mediterranean and Baltic) and another player lands on their properties they would be able to recommend at least one of the books that the player has to read.
Utilities – For the Electric Company – Read a book where the characters have electric chemistry. For Water Works – Read a book that makes you cry. Books have to be 150 pages or more.
• If a player lands on an “Owned” utility, then the owner will recommend a book with electric chemistry or that makes them cry.
Railroads – For Reading Railroad – Read whatever you want. For Pennsylvania Railroad – Read a book set in Pennsylvania. For B&O Railroad – Read a book that someone else thought stunk. For Short Line – Read a novella. Page minimum 150 for all but Short Line. 25 page minimum for the novella.
• If a player lands on an “owned” railroad, the owner will recommend a book for that specific railroad.
Chance and Community Chest – there are 12 cards for each. If a player lands on one of those spots they will roll the dice a second time and then would “pull” the corresponding card and do whatever it says on the card. Once a card is used, it will be out of play unless needed to finish the game. Books for this would need to be at least 150 pages.
Being in Jail – To get out of jail you would need to have one of the get out of jail free cards, roll doubles on one of your next three turns or read a book where a character is arrested or has been in jail. Books for this would need to be 150 pages or more.
Just Visiting – Read a novella of your choice, 50 page minimum
Free Parking – Read any book 100 pages or more
Go – Read any book of 200 pages or more
Luxury Tax/Income Tax – Read a book with a rich character, a really poor character or someone that works in a bank. 150 pages or more
• Each roll, you'll post your starting spot, the roll and your new spot on the board.
• When you finish your book you'll post the spot your on, book name, rating, when it was finished and a short review of the book. If you were supposed to read a book that had a specific element (water works utility, book that made you cry), then please mention that in the review.
• Re-reads are allowed.

Joyce (eternity21) | 581 comments i read the discussion about being in jail. you can roll once more once you are in jail and twice more the next day if you don't get doubles. if you don't get doubles in those three rolls you need tto do the book option. so im going to roll again


message 9: by Emily (new)

Emily Haha. You had an eventful first roll. At least you got out of jail right away. :)


message 10: by Joyce (new)

Joyce (eternity21) | 581 comments Yes that was great. City of Bones was a good book. Hope you are enjoying it.


message 11: by Emily (new)

Emily I have one book I need to finish up before I can start it, but I should start by the weekend. I'll let you know what I think.

I'm curious to hear what you think of The Girl on the Train. I liked it, but I know a lot of people who didn't, for various reasons.

Yes I've heard mixed reviews. I'm going to listen to the audiobook.


message 13: by Emily (new)

Emily Wow! You're cruising along there! I need to get on mine!

I had a few books out from the library, or for other challenges, that I had to finish before I could get to mine. Going to try and get it finished soon! Can't let you beat me! Haha.


message 14: by Emily (new)

Emily Finally own my first piece of property!

I'm going to try to be better. It's not even that I wasn't reading - it's just that I kept having to push this book to the back burner for library books or other challenges.
