Monopoly FAQs – The Most Asked Questions in Monopoly, Which Started Ma…




As promised in Part 1, here are more answers to frequently asked questions in Monopoly responsible for many highly audible family ‘discussions’ and family feuds.

I hope the answers I found for my family will bring you new meaning to your family bonding!

Question 1: How much rent can a player collect if he/she owns all of the four railroads, but one is mortgaged to the bank?

The answers I found:
If any of the players lands on the character that is mortgaged to the bank, the owner is not allowed to collect rent from that player. However, the owner can nevertheless collect the rent from other players who land on one of the railroad similarities nevertheless owned by the player. So, if a railroad character in a particular color collection is mortgaged to the bank the owner can nevertheless collect rent when players land on other railroad similarities and similarities in the same color collection.

Question 2: If I end up in Jail, am I nevertheless allowed to keep collecting rent from other players who land on my character?

The answer I found:
Yes, you are allowed.  As far as collecting your rightful rent while being in jail you can nevertheless do so in a Monopoly game.

Question 3: If I drew a card that moves me pass “Go” am I nevertheless able to collect $200?

The answer I found:
Yes, you are allowed to do so but not if the card sends you to Jail.

Question 4: Am I allowed to borrow from another player in the game?

The answer I found:
No, you can’t.  Players are only allowed to borrow money from the bank by mortgages. (Darn it, that used to be real fun!)

This was supposed to be a two part series but I ended up I finding more family ‘Monopoly feud questions’ that needed answering if the world is hoping for lasting peace. 

So fun-lovers out there, look out for my, hopefully final, part three in most frequently asked questions in Monopoly responsible for many highly audible family ‘discussions’ and family feuds.
