I like to buy purple properties.  Not because it's a good strategy, but because I enjoy being a slum lord.

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.

The only way to win is rage quit while tossing the table over. Then you can play a decent game like Catan or Fresco.

If you really want to play an old school real estate game, might I suggest Acquire.

There's no Teschmacher Peaks, but it's still SO much better than Monopoly.

I play Monopoly to lose. My strategy is to pick up a few random properties around the board. Once the game gets going, I'm the only thing preventing the other players from having a monopoly. So, when it gets to the point that I'll be out in a couple of turns anyway, I auction off all my properties to the highest bidder. Then I give all the proceeds to charity- puting them in the middle of the board- and retire. I get to quit stress-free, and whoever lands on Free Parking next is in for a treat.

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.

I'm going to assume you're also the banker when you play.
