Classic Game Rules
The playing field has 8 sectors, which symbolize different industries: the transport system, the media, light and food industries, mining and heavy industries, communications and communications, and the entertainment industry. These 8 sectors are located along the perimeter of the playing field. Site cards are laid out on the cells with enterprises. In the center of each strip of the board game "Millionaire" are the most expensiveenterprises.
And in the middle of the playing field is a slot machine called "Jackpot" and "Charity Fund Bank". The purpose of these cells will be discussed later. On the cells "Chance" and "Movement", which are located one, two or three cells along the perimeter of the playing field, cards with the corresponding names are placed. They are placed face down so that the player does not see the upcoming task in advance.
During the draw, the player who makes the first move is selected. In the board game "Millionaire", the cells start counting clockwise from the word "Start". Before starting any game, you need to appoint a banker of fashion from the players. He must distribute the initial capital - 2000 forfeits in banknotes of different denominations. When a player rolls the dice, points are counted, the chip moves the corresponding number of cells. If you are “lucky” and get a double, you will have to roll the dice again. But if the double falls three times in a row, then the player is forced to go to the cell with the inscription "Tax Police". Such a move is fraught with the payment of pen alties.
According to the rules of the board game "Millionaire" Classic, if the chip falls on the cell of the enterprise, then the player takes a site card, which details how much taxes you need to pay for the enterprise itself or the rental rate for it. If this enterprisethere is no owner yet, then the player can buy it, deposit the required cost for it in the Bank. The lot card remains with the player in the pack.
If a player is not interested in buying this site, he puts it up for sale, independently determining its cost. The lot goes to the player who bids the most at the auction.
If another player's chip ends up on your site as a result of a roll of dice, then you will have to pay as many forfeits as indicated on the card for being in someone else's enterprise. There are situations when a chip lands on a cell owned by a monopolist, that is, a player who has bought up all the enterprises in this industry, then the rate doubles, the rent is already paid at a double rate.
There are also pleasant moments. When a player makes a full circle around the playing field, then according to the rules of the game in the board game "Millionaire", he receives a bonus of circular income of 200 forfeits.
In the course of throwing the dice, the players' chips can also fall on the cells with the "shirts" turned upside down. These are "Chance" and "Movement". Let's take a closer look at what needs to be done in such cases:
- Turning over the card on the cell, the player reads the task and must complete it. If at this moment he is not able to complete the task, then this can be done later.
- When hitting the "Move", as the name of the card shows, the player will need to move the chip to the distance indicated on it. If the chip suddenly falls on the "Start", then the player losescircular income, that is, 200 forfeits. If, during the movement, the chip falls on the "White Business" or "Charity Fund" cell, then the player receives a cash prize from the funds of the Bank or the Fund. But there is also a cell with the inscription "Black business". Having hit it as a result of moving the chip, the player automatically moves to the "Charity Fund" square, where he already has to contribute 50 forfeits to charity.
- "Jackpot". A slot machine is located in the center of the playing field, so that when a chip hits it, the player can play. In the Millionaire board game, according to the rules of the game, you first need to place a bet. Then only one die is thrown, three times. After each throw, the player must move the chip up the column by the corresponding number of cells. If the pictures match the winning combination, then the winner receives a bonus prize. But if the player is not lucky, the combination did not match, then the bet remains in the Bank's cash desk.
On the corner squares of the playing field there are "Tax Police" and "Tax Inspection". If the chip after the move falls into the inspection, then the tax is simply paid. If the chip ended up on the police cell, then you need to roll the dice 3 times (until a double falls out) in order to leave the territory of the site. If the double did not fall out, then you will have to fork out and pay a fine.
