Monopoly Empire is a game play variant of Monopoly that has players collecting billboards to fill a tower instead of properties to bankrupt opponents. This is done by traveling around the board and buying brands. There are no trades, however there are cards that can force players to swap billboards (also called tiles), or to take tiles from other players. According to the official rules, no one can go bankrupt in Monopoly Empire. The goal is to fill your tower with billboards. The first player to do so, wins the game.
The game changes tend to make the game play much faster than traditional Monopoly.
