- This remarkable accessory adds 3 specialties to the Monopoly game:
- 1. Auctions for players to collect properties more quickly.
- 2. Buyback, through which it becomes possible to buy a color group as a whole.
- 3. Loan, to build houses and hotels faster.
The basic rules remain unchanged. The bank, the gameboard, the cards, everything keeps the same meaning. Playmaster however, with its exciting new lights, sounds and electronic dice adds an extra dimension.
To use Playmaster it is placed on the centre of the gameboard in such a way that its Chance and Community Chest holes falls over the corresponding spaces on the board. Next the 9V power pack is to connect. Before the start of the game players have to become familiar with those quite a few noices and melodies like:
|Start of the game||We're in the Money|
|Double throw||Merrily we roll along|
|Chance and Community Chest||Beethoven's Piano Sonata|
|Go to Jail||Siren|
|Loan||We're in the Money|
|Call Loan||Beethoven's 5th Symphony|
|Auction||16 High Wheezes|
|Buy Back||Schubert's Lieder|
|Free Parking||The Circus March|
|Income Tax / Super tax||Framboze|
|Station||I've Been Working on the Railroad|
This interesting instrument was also sold in the European countries Belgium, France, Germany, The Netherlands, and Spain.
