Under my hat


Another Monopoly puzzle

Under the strictest possible reading of the rules, what other card besides “Go To Jail” might send the player who draws it to Jail?
Granted, if you tried to enforce this during a game, you might get players to agree that the rules literally do imply jail in this odd circumstance, but few, if any, would agree that the author intended it to be so.



  1. ok, i’ll bite — what card??

  2. “Advance token to nearest utility.”

    If you have reached Chance on your second throw of doubles and draw this card, and the nearest utility is owned, you are to roll the dice again to determine the rent. If that roll is doubles, you go to jail!

    The rules don’t say that only dice rolls for the purpose of moving count.
