    The Charleston Game plays a lot like Monopoly with one catch: players must answer Examination Questions about Charleston's history or culture correctly to purchase properties when they lands on them. Knowledge of Charleston is the only currency in this game. Acquired property cards contain information that can aid owners in answering future questions.

When a player lands on an already owned property, there's a Showdown between the player who landed on the property and the property's owner. (If one or both players have no property, no Showdown occurs.) To resolve a Showdown, both players put up a property as a Wager, then roll the dice. The player with the highest roll (reroll any ties) draws an Examination Card and attempts to answer the question. If he answers correctly, he wins both properties. If he answers incorrectly, the properties go to his adversary. The answers to all of the questions on the Examination Cards are in the Official Rule and Answer Booklet that comes with the game.

The game ends when all property is claimed by the players.
