Squares on a Monopoly board are also known as spaces. Most of them are actually rectangle-shapes, but still, Monopoly squares is the familiar name by which many of us know them, or Monopoly spaces.

Every other guide I’ve found lists only the Monopoly properties (i.e. the ones you can build houses and hotels on).

So, in this list, I’ve included every square, including railroads, utilities, the jail space, and so on.
