According to the Action Card directions on a Double Rent card, it can only be played with a Rent card.

Given that it is the only card that cannot be played alone, does it count against your total cards played count for a given turn (which cannot exceed 3)?

It counts as two cards out of your three for that turn. Taken from the FAQ monopoly-game.net:

Q - IF I USE A ‘DOUBLE THE RENT’ CARD WITH A STANDARD RENT CARD, DOES THIS COUNT AS ‘PLAYING’ 2 CARDS, OR 1? A - This would count as 2 out of the possible 3 cards you can play per turn.

Additional sources that confirm this:

  • that really needs to be in the rules supplied with the game :) – warren Apr 24 '14 at 19:20
  • perhaps, then, it just needs to be written explicitly. Especially given you cannot use it on its own. – warren Apr 25 '14 at 19:04
