Benevolent Misanthrope: I'm amazed when people don't know about auctions. Everyone I've ever talked to about Monopoly in adulthood (admittedly few, it's not a regular topic of conversation for me) had no clue that properties may be auctioned, much less that they are supposed to be auctioned.It vastly improves the game.

doublesecretprobation: we always played with a packed bong as the free parking bonus. dude, how long have i owned the electric company?!

FirstNationalBastard: Monopoly shows the true nature of a person.Play a game with your "friends"... you'll find out just what greedy, evil cocksuckers they truly are./and how greedy, manipulative a cocksucker you are.
bingethinker: If you actually read the rules, there's also a "short version" of how to play the game. I don't remember the details, because it's been decades, but it does move things along faster.
Copperbelly watersnake: The proper way to play Monopoly:Step 1. Go to www.boardgamegeek.comStep 2: Find a much better board game.Step 3: Win.
ramblinwreck: I've known that rule and never have played following it. No one I've played with likes it.
