Last time I played they caught me with extra 500's up my sleeve, I lost the right to be banker and got the nickname 'Enron'.

Seems it could have been worse.

I made the mistake of beating my wife's ass in Monopoly the first time we played. She became convinced that my 12 year old daughter and I were were conspiring to knock her out of the game because she wasn't doing so well. She then stormed off and slammed the door.

Who cares? Going to jail is great once you've got a set with houses on it. Just sit in jail where there's no chance of you hitting their properties, and a reasonable one of them landing on yours.

If it's early in the game, pay the $50 and get out fast so you can start buying properties again.

she has issues beyond monopoly. attaching the cops isn't a good idea.

Ok, not really. Monopolization is anti-capitalism.

Rick: It did not say that! Michael, Vyvyan is cheating!
Vyvyan: Mike?
Mike: No, he's right, Rick: that's exactly what it says.
Rick: In biro, Mike! In biro over the top of the print!
Vyvyan: But we have to change the rules because Monopoly's so boring!
Rick: Congratulations, it is your birthday, you may set fire to Rick's Bed.
Vyvyan: Good one!
Rick: Get out of jail free: you may keep this card, sell it or stick it up Rick's bottom! Vyvyan, you've ruined the game!
Vyvyan: I WAS BORED!

It should go to a Victim's Fund or battered women's shelter.

Best way to play monopoly:

No 1's or 5's.
Each person has a dedicated player to their direct left to handle cash transactions for proper accounting.
When you land in jail you get to roll again, if you get doubles you're automatically out.

=45 minutes or less games.

Well, you farking played it wrong. BurnShrike hit the Monopoly Jail Strategy right on the head.

It quite specifically states in the rules that you CAN collect rent in jail, so I've really never understood why so many people think that you can't.

You cannot collect rent on a property that is currently mortgaged, and that is the only time you cannot collect rent.

Monopoly is serious farking business. I've seen people not speak to each other for days because of that game.

I hated playing it with my family. Good job Dad, playing against a seven and ten year old who don't understand the rules fully so you could win all the time. Ass.

/What, me bitter?

FTFA:
"The Santa Fe New Mexican reports that police arrested 60-year-old Laura Chavez Wednesday after finding a 48-year-old man with stab wounds and bleeding heavily from his head and right wrist."

Laura Chavez Wednesday - what an odd name.

Also FTFA:
"Chavez was arrested on suspicion of aggravated battery on a household member with a deadly weapon, battery upon a peace officer and assault upon a peace officer."

Is that correct? Are they 'peace' officers? I never heard that before.

This is the best thing to ever happen to Monopoly. Of course people are still going to fight over getting to be the Segway.

Yeah, it does explicitly say that you can collect money while in jail. I've played with more than a few people who use the house rule that you can't though.

This kind of reminds me of the time when I once killed a man over a disputed word in Scrabble. But my blood lust was not sated! I went on a violent killing spree, hunting down, murdering then feasting upon the entrails of all known descendants of The Parker Brothers. I felt kind of bad for my victims after I found out that Scrabble was manufactured by Mattel, INC. :(

This.

If there was just a stabbing over the Monopoly games me and my friends played it would considered a pretty calm game.

My family used to play Monopoly all the time, only game my father would play (big baby!) and we pretty much just competed for second place, since the old man always won. We finally ended up with a game where my mom won (we didn't even team up on dad) so my sister and I made a plaque and cake for her and everything... yeah, dad refused to play ever again after that. Heh.

None of my friends will play games with me, unless they involve dice. If they involve dice, I will lose every freaking time!!!
