The below is from the help section of the Monopoly Deal

Sly Deal

Steal a property card or a property wild card from any other player and add it to your property collection. You cannot steal a card from a full set of properties. Can also be banked as money. Bank value: 3M.

Question: Can I still take the property wild card using Sly Deal if none of my property cards are displayed on the table?

Yes, you can take. In fact, you can rotate the Wild Card before placing a new card on the table to change its color and add your new property. ;)

  • Hahahaha... This was a translation error. In Brazil we call Wild Card from Joker. I will edit my answer! Thank's! – Thiago Bueno Fiorenza Dec 11 '19 at 12:26
  • Thank you. Can you support this statement with some documentation. – Siddharth Rout Apr 2 at 6:15

Yes, you can still steal someone's property (wild or otherwise) using Sly Deal, even if you have not yet played any of your own property cards.

In that case, your existing "property collection" starts with zero properties, then once you "add (the stolen card) to your property collection", it has a size of one.

  • @SiddharthRout Dunno, seems like more of a philosophical question than a rules one. You can "add a card to the discard pile" even if you're the first player and the discard is currently empty. You can "add a card to your bank" even if you don't have any cards there yet. Similarly, your "property collection" is the set of property cards in front of you; at the beginning of the game it has zero items, but is still a designated region of the table. You can "add" cards to this set by playing them from your hand, by stealing them, or by collecting them from other players via payment cards. – BradC Apr 2 at 14:29
  • Perhaps the most applicable part of the rules is the portion that describes the 3 different places you can play cards: monopolydealrules.com/index.php?page=play#top – BradC Apr 2 at 14:31

Excerpts from the rules for Monopoly Deal by Hasbro

THE CARDS IN MORE DETAIL

Sly Deal

Steal a property from any other player and add it to your collection. You cannot steal a card from a full set of properties. Can also be banked as money.

ON YOUR TURN

PLAY UP TO 3 CARDS from your hand, onto the table in front of you.

A. PUT MONEY/ACTION CARDS INTO YOUR OWN BANK

B. PUT DOWN PROPERTIES INTO YOUR OWN COLLECTION

Lay property cards down in front of you to build up your property sets.

(End of excerpts)

The rules clearly state that either of these actions mean that the cards must be played from from your hand onto the table in front of you.

So, either way, you must be able to place the stolen card in front of you, and not keep it in your hand. As long as the card ends up in your collection by the end of your turn, you can steal it.

  • Sorry, it's confusing what you are trying to say.. So let me rephrase it.. I can steal a property wild card and place it on the table using Sly Deal even if none of my property cards are displayed on the table? – Siddharth Rout Dec 3 '19 at 4:17
  • @SiddharthRout : Exactly... – Robert Miller Dec 4 '19 at 16:39

    Ok I re-read your answer again and I am not sure which part says that "clearly" – Siddharth Rout Dec 4 '19 at 16:45
  • @SiddharthRout : The rule «Lay property cards down in front of you to build up your property sets.» means that you take cards from your hand and lay them on the table, thereby building your property set. The «Sly Deal» states that you can include the stolen card in your property set. You cannot place the stolen card down alone. – Robert Miller Dec 4 '19 at 20:24

    You cannot place the stolen card down alone. Exactly. And that is where the confusion is. The Wild Card is supposd to be put on top of another property card. But like I mentioned there is no card on my table. – Siddharth Rout Dec 5 '19 at 2:15
