Finally, a board game the family won’t beat each other up over! Monopoly is releasing a special “Cheaters Edition” this fall that encourages players to do just that…cheat! Business Insider reports a stack of 15 cheat cards with naughty challenges on them are included, along with usual Community Chest and Chance cards. There’s a reward if you pull it off with no one noticing and a punishment if you get caught.

Here are some of the cards:

Stealing money from the bank
Placing a hotel on one of your pieces of property
Removing a hotel from someone else’s property
Moving another player’s token instead of your own on your turn.
Giving someone less money than you owe them.
Collecting rent for someone else’s property

“A recent study conducted by Hasbro revealed that nearly half of game players attempt to cheat during Monopoly games, so in 2018, we decided it was time to give fans what they’ve been craving all along – a Monopoly game that actually encourages cheating,” said Hasbro gaming senior VP Jonathan Berkowitz.
