SUMMARY

Action Cards for "Ultimate Monopoly" in the style of Classic 20th Century Monopoly cards.

These are a set of "Action Cards" for use with the fan-made game "Ultimate Monopoly".  They include Chance, Community Chest, Travel Vouchers, and Roll 3! Cards.  Many of these cards were taken from, or inspired by a number of sources, and some are completely original.

While this set was designed to be used with "Ultimate Monopoly" (and refer to features specific to that game) - many can be used (with minor tweaking) with other Monopoly or "__-opoly" style games.

Some cards are silly, some are potential game changers, but I tried to balance them.  Let me know what you think.  Of course, if you download and use any of these cards, you are not obligated to use all of them (or any, really).  Print and cut the ones you want and toss the rest.


BREAKDOWN

At the last count, there were a total of 216 cards included.

    36 Travel Vouchers                 (Pages 1-3)           [Purple paper suggested]
    72 Chance Cards                    (Pages 4-9)            [Orange paper suggested]
    72 Community Chest Cards    (Pages 10-15)        [Yellow paper suggested]
    36 Roll 3! Cards                      (Pages 16-18)       [Blue paper suggested]


HOW TO USE

To use these cards, simply download the PDF and print on any printer.

The file is in black-and-white, so a color printer is not needed.

To keep them in the classic theme, and to make it easily to sort them, I suggest using different color paper or card stock for the different sets of cards.

I suggest Purple for the Travel Vouchers, Orange for Chance, Yellow for Community Chest, and Blue for the Roll 3!.

This is a more-than-complete set, meaning if you print and use these cards, you will not need to add in the matching cards included with any of the games you are using for "Ultimate Monopoly".

POINTLESS BACKGROUND INFORMATION - "CREATOR COMMENTARY"

The "Travel Vouchers" are a combination of the "Bus Tickets" from "Monopoly: Mega Edition" and the "Travel" cards from "Super Add-ons".  The "Travel" cards didn't really have a reason for you to move your token, just that you could.  I made them "Free Cab Fare" cards to match the Cab Co. spaces that jonizaak added to the board.  I also added a few "Transit Tokens" to utilize his new "Transit Station" spaces as well.  The "Expire" Bus Ticket now also expires all other Travel Vouchers - not just Bus Tickets.

Made using Apple iWork '09 Pages 4.3 (I do not like the new Pages 5) Adobe Photoshop CS6, Adobe Illustrator CS6 on Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks.

Hello,

I didn't do the Title Deed Cards, that was jonizaak - you might be able to ask him to make one for you.  I think it would be a good resource to have available.

Sorry for the triple-post, but I couldn't help but ask if there's any consideration with adding more "Go to this particular space" Chance and Community Chest cards. There's no cards that go to the outer area of the board (excluding Rodeo Drive).

Thanks for the input.

There are several cards that take you to the outer track - the most common being Go Directly to Jail.

Other outer track spaces with cards sending you there include:
B&W Taxi
Rodeo Drive x 2
"Buyer's Market" (Any Outer Track Space)
Subway (Although technically after that you can go to any space on the board, on any track)
Garbage Day - Trash Collector
Mardi Gras - Canal Street (All players go to that space when the card is drawn)
Birthday Space

Additionally there are several "Changing Lanes" cards that send players up or down a level, depending on which card they draw.

Ah. I meant cards that would take you to properties within a colored group on the outer track, which is what Rodeo Drive counts as.
Like cards that would take you to Katy Freeway, Dekalb Avenue, and Michigan Avenue, for example.

I think if I add more Outer Track cards it will be unbalanced.  As we were working on this, we tried to make sure travel between the tracks would flow smoothly, so you're not stuck on one track or the other, and so no one track is rarely used.

I was wrong in my earlier comment about go to jail.  It's been a while since I looked at the board, and at one point we had the Jail on the outer track.

Canal Street is a colored space, and again, that card makes ALL the players go there - not just the one who drew the card.  The Trash Collector is an ownable / rent collected property - it's just a ultitity instead of a color.  The Cab Companies are properties, too.

I can create some and post them separately if you would like to use them.  If I was going to put them into the main package, I would feel like I would need to take out an equal number of other cards that lead to the outer track so it's not more heavily traveled than the others.  (And I personally like the write up I put on those cards, so I don't want to get rid of them.  :D )

If you want to do optional colored property Chance/Community Chest cards, you're more than welcome to.

I noticed an error with the "Losers' Weepers" C-Chest card.

It should say "Put 1 of your Travel Vouchers back on the deck."
chadws's avatar
chadwsHobbyist General Artist
Ah yes.  I will correct that and reupload. Good eye.  Thank you.

A few minor fixes:
--GET TAKEN FOR A RIDE: The "If" in "If unowned, do nothing" is split onto 2 lines; the "I" on the line above the "f".
--MARDI GRAS: There shouldn't be a comma in "Everyone has to see, the parade..."; it should be "Everyone has to see the parade...". The other commas are fine.
--ZERO DOLLARS DOWN: Upper text should be "Build 1 FREE house on any property in a monopoly you own." Lose the extra "for free".
--ALWAYS BANK ON FAMILY: Second line should read "The Bank will add $100 TO your final bid in the next auction.", not "on".
--Both ROLL 3 cards with the dice combo of 2-4-5 are numbered "2-4-3".

Thank you very much for being so thorough.  I really appreciate it.  I have made those changes.  Very good catches.  Especially the Roll 3! one.  I would have never found that one (or two since it was in two places).

The new version is uploaded.

Thanks again!

When the Bargain Business card refers to "Any Brand" does that mean Cab Companies and Railroads?
chadws's avatar
chadwsHobbyist General Artist
That was a mistake.  I changed it to unowned property.
