Monopoly — Republican Edition:

(Most of these rules only apply to the battleship, sack of money, horse and rider, car, train, top hat, and cannon. The wheelbarrow, thimble, Scottie dog, iron, and boot are on their own.)

• Blue and light-blue properties have been re-colorized as red and light-red properties. Properties that were previously red have been re-colorized to a new shade, named "Ronald Reagan Red."

• There is no Community Chest, you damn bunch of Commies.

• Free Parking only applies to players owning Maseratis.

• Income-Tax percentage is the lowest for the player with the most money and vice versa.

• If you own 2/3 of one monopoly and 1/3 of another, you can always gerrymander.

• Luxury Tax only applies to cigars, alcohol, and dignity.

• Blackwater runs Baltic and Mediterranean Avenues; land there and lose a finger.

• The rules allow for only two players at a time: one man, one woman. If you want to play same-sex Monopoly, then you had better keep it indoors and out of the prying eyes of impressionable children.

• You can buy your way out of jail whenever you want.

• Chance includes such cards as "Rhythm method fails: pay hospital $1,000" and "You have won second prize in a beauty contest. Become Candidate for Vice President."

• If you go bankrupt, the banker gives you $700 billion.
