In this final version, Homeland Security has rounded up all the players and has them in FEMA labor camps. They get on the bus early in the morning and are transported out to the fields to work all day in the hot sun. The Banker lies to them as to the reason they are there every evening when they are all subject to 10 hours of brainwashing television propaganda. The Banker rolls the dice all by himself and goes around and around the board as he chooses. They other players must obey when ordered to make him something to eat or bring him a cold beer. Game ends when the Central Banker has all his coins taken back from him and the other players tell him good night.
In this version the other players must pay rent to the Banker that owns all the properties, and do not get to own anything because the Banker already took all the wealth out of the economy. The good news is that finally you get to collect money for passing GO, you will recieve $1000 (foodstamps, unemployment and welfare) from the Banker each time around the board. The Banker may print as much money as he wants with a copy machine and a pair of scissors, but he may not use it to benefit the other players or he will get kicked out of the elite social club.
Game ends when gas gets to be $100 per gallon and the other players can not afford to put fuel in their tank. Now that everyone is good and fed up, it's time to proceed to the Revolution Version(Level 4)
In this version, each player brings $2500 dollars worth of Gold, Silver, Palladium, Platinum or Rhodium coins to begin. Paper money is not used. Players collect $200 in coin when passing go, paid collectively by the other players. Any or all players may act as Bankers in level 1, but all coin loaned will be paid back to them at the rate of 2% per round, and savings accounts will pay out 1% every time around the board. Last player remaining wins and becomes Banker in FIAT MONOPOLY as players advance to level 2!
Instead of using real Precious Metal coins, counterfeit coins may be used in their place. Pennies, nickles, dimes and quarters may be substituted instead, and valued at one dollar to the cent (4 quarters would be worth $100)

In this version of MONOPOLY we go off the Gold Standard and start using paper (This way we will be able to steal from the entire world and enslave every last man, women and child)
All the properties, buildings and money are dealt out before beginning the game, but the money must be paid back to the Banker with interest, at 10% per year (a year is 12 times around the board) If a player can not afford to pay back his loan to the Banker with interest in full after completing 12 times around the board, that player must leave the game. The Banker will retain possesion of that players foreclosed properties and their cash, and does not sell those properties to another player or loan that cash out. If the player does pay back the loan, in full, the Banker pockets the interest paid, and again makes a new loan at 10% interest to that player for the previous amount plus 10%, for another 12 month period (use a copy machine and scissors to print new money and expand the economy at 10% per year)
The players do not collect $200 when passing GO (since they already have all the money).
. The Banker may bail himself out by printind himself more Monopoly Money, but only the minimum amount required to stay in the game. He may not print new money for the other playersas quanitive easing is not realy for them.
The last player remaining in the game wins, and advances to level 3 as the position of President of the United States.
