Deneb81: Fark_Guy_Rob: StrangeQ: I don't care what strategy you use as long as you play by the god damned rules. That means no favors, no under the table deals, no "I'll give you half price rent for three turns if you let me off just this once", no "I'll pay the $50 or use my get-out-of-jail-free-card to get them out of jail", no trading property or cards in lieu of rent unless it is a complete turning over as a result of bankruptcy. Play by the damned rules or gtfo./monopoly nazi//and hands off my purples. I swear the rules say something like 'The property owner has to ask for the due rent'. IE, it's perfectly acceptable for you to land on my property and not pay, so long as I don't ask you and the next player begins their turn.That seems to imply all sorts of room for wiggle. If I'm too busy counting my stack of properties you gave me last turn to notice you landing on my property; so be it. The rules don't say you have to pay.At least, that's how I remember it.Also, take the rent, sell them an unimproved property for rent+$1. They then sell it back to you for $1. It's all legal and has the effect of no rent.
SwingDancer: My strategy is to buy up all the houses, and never move on to hotels. If you dont know why this is a winning move, you've never actually read the rules.
Tobin_Lam: There's no such thing as a building shortage. The rules suggest that you use whatever you have if you run out of anything.
xria: Of course the real thing monopoly teaches us is that most winners are lucky rather than good - being good might increase your odds a bit, but nothing in comparison to how much luck is involved in deciding the outcomes.
Sybarite: If I go bankrupt I just insist that all the other players give me money until I'm rich again, that is unless they want me to just burn the building down around us.
