How Much Money Does Each Player Get In The Game Monopoly

First thing you'll need to know to play Monopoly is how to get started. Pick a player to be the banker. As you might think, the banker's job is to deal with the money.

Monopoly Pass GoThe first thing the banker needs to do is give each player their starting money. The starting money totals $1500 but needs to consist of the following bills:

2 - $500 bills
2 - $100 bills
2 - $50 bills
6 - $20 bills
5 - $10 bills
5 - $5 bills
5 - $1 bills

The banker will also pay each player $200 every time they pass Go and collect the money needed to buy real estate. Towards the end of the game when players can't afford to pay rents on the properties that they stay at, the banker also handles bankruptcies. But we'll get to that in another post.

If your Monopoly board is old and worn out, (like mine) you may not have the instructions in the box anymore. If that's the case, then knowing how much each player gets when you start playing Monopoly is important to remember.

Welcome To The Monopoly Rules Blog

MonopolyWelcome to Monopoly Rules, the blog devoted to the game of Monopoly. This popular board game has been around since 1935 and countless numbers of children and adults have been enjoying it ever since.

Back when I was a kid, I took a book out from the library on the history of Monopoly. It also included the complete rules and strategies on how to win the game. I've been tormenting my friends and family with my mad real estate acquiring skills ever since. When the little dog comes into town, you know that houses and hotels aren't far behind.

And now, on this blog, I plan to share what I learned with my readers. And I'll also post about any Monopoly related news or new products that I come across in my travels.

So sit back, hide your Get Out of Jail Free card and enjoy.
