Objective of the game: Be the last player standing.
Property: Replacing the usual Monopoly properties are locations from Fortnite Island such as Dusty Divot, Lazy Link, Paradise Palms and Tilted Towers replaces Broadwalk.
Money: Currency is now Health Points. If you run out of life points at any time you lose the game just as you would if you would have ran out of money in a traditional Monopoly board game.
Player Tokens: Replace with Nevermore, Omega, Skull Tropper just name a few.
Dice: Instead of having both dice equal the amount of steps you take towards a property, the two dices each have their own purpose in the game. One dice is used for movement and the second dice will be for actions.
Bandage (health points)
Cross Hairs, allowing you to shoot a player that is in line of sight and deal 1 damage. Line of site is anybody that is playing on the same side of the board as you.
Wall, protects you from shot as it places a wall on your space.
The Storm, Players can still land on a space taken by the storm but there is a price to pay. When you land on a property taken by the storm you lose 2 lives. Previous space are also ignored.
Chance & Community Chest Cards Replaced by Storm, Trap and Chest cards.
Beyond The Tradition
Fortnite Monopoly is set to feature more characters than ever before. The more characters resulting in the more players can be all play at once. Also these characters will be the biggest in size as well.
