Hasbro is releasing a special "Cheater's Edition" of Monopoly this fall.

The twist on the classic game will encourage fans to cheat during gameplay.

The Cheater's Edition will come with 15 cheat cards which ask players to carry out tasks throughout the game.

These can range from taking money from the bank to moving someone else's token on your turn.

If successful, players will get rewards like extra cash or free properties to help them get further in the game.

If they're caught, players may have to hand over money or wind up handcuffed to the board game in jail.

Here's how the box for the Cheater's Edition will look. Hasbro
"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," Jonathan Berkowitz, senior vice president of Hasbro gaming tells INSIDER.

The object of the game is still to be the player with the most money at the game's end, but it may be a little tougher to accomplish. The Cheater's Edition will ask players to get away with cheating as many times as they can during game play. That means players can skip spaces, try to avoid paying rent, and slip a few extra bills from the bank when no one's looking.
