1 Let me just clarify something. The auction rule doesn't say you have to bid on the property the person passed on, only that the other players have the option. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 4, 2012, 4:51 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Actually the greens are the best. Most frequently landed on *and* best return for your investment once you buy all three and put a hotel on each. But yes, the oranges are good too. But the yellows and purples are a waste of time. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on September 1, 2012, 5:38 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 The best properties to go for? The Pink and Orange properties. Make the people getting out of jail go through a gauntlet, especially once you get building. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on August 31, 2012, 10:18 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 I never used the auction rule or played with anyone who did. Sometimes you just don't want to buy a property. What's wrong with that? It's like walking into a store and being forced to buy or bid on something because you're on that aisle. BTW I still have a Monopoly strategy guide, detailing what properties are the best to obtain, when you should sell certain ones, and even probability tables for every dice roll. Good stuff. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on August 30, 2012, 8:27 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 "How often do you park in a free lot finding money lying around?" LOL, that's hilarious! And a succinct way to put it. I never even experienced hitting the jackpot on Free Parking until I played it with students and teachers (the latter making that rule). This made the game last forever as someone else was bound to hit the jackpot by the time the last winner's funds were running low. When I was younger, I thought you went to jail by landing on the Jail space, until my parents said, "No, you're just visiting. See?" Then showed me the Just Visiting segment of the square. I've played alternate versions of Monopoly, so I'm not necessarily averse to them. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on August 28, 2012, 2:01 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 Just silly little house rules that people play with. No biggie in my book. If I have one problem with Monopoly, it's just that it takes so long to play. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on August 28, 2012, 1:20 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 I'm something of a traditionalist with Monopoly. I'm not bothered by the alternate versions so much as I am by people who like to play by their own implausible rules to speed up the game. Sorry, but there's nothing about landing on "Free Parking" being a metaphor for a payout. How often do you park in a free lot finding money lying around? Implausible? You bet it is, and that's why it's not in the rules. Then it seems almost nobody is aware of the rule that when you opt not to buy a property, the remaining players, and yourself, get to bid on it before the next player's turn. Of course, everyone can opt out if they want, but how often would they choose that if they knew they had a choice? If you really want to speed the game up, follow that real rule and put the fake Free Parking payout silliness to rest. It's about winning by getting a real estate monopoly, not by falling ass backwards into a free parking space. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 11:47 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Too damn many versions out there. Why is it necessary? Outside of stating it's for collectors. Why is it necessary? -- Submitted By: (Jp) on August 19, 2011, 5:38 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Can't understand the rules? You buy and sell phony property - what's to understand? -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on January 20, 2011, 12:22 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
10 I hate this game because no matter how much I read the rules I still can't understand the damn game. -- Submitted By: (Mr.Zimpy) on January 2, 2011, 6:16 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
11 The board was redesigned? Darrow's spinning in his grave with that one. If it ain't broke, DON'T FIX IT. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on December 29, 2010, 10:34 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
12 this one just a bad memory. everytime i be winning my sister throw the board and all the peices go flying. Mama slap her and make her pick them all up. I can still see her digging under the couch to find all the little green houses. truth is she still nasty. -- Submitted By: (shanequia) on May 17, 2010, 11:11 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
13 I guarantee you, this "New and Improved" Monopoly reboot is the brain-child for a team of self-proclaimed "Marketing Geniuses". It is a monument and a testament to the arrogance of these guys who think they can improve upon a classic that has worked just fine in it's current form for generations. The only genius to it is this (Mark my words): They'll roll out this re-booted version of Monopoly and completely phase out the version we grew up with, then in 10 or 15 years, when sales of Monopoly are down, they'll start marketing a "Classic" version of the Monopoly game in a bit of nostalgia marketing. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on February 5, 2010, 3:53 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
14 Monopoly is a fun game to play! I even like playing the McDonald's version every year (been playing that for over 15 years now!), and that's my favorite sweepstakes! BTW, for probably the most amazing and humorous Monopoly game ever, here's a Youtube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tq_A2h1_SLY&feature=related Don't worry; this is totally G-rated! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on February 4, 2010, 3:33 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
15 IS this the dreaded "Here and Now" version I've heard about? And crappy plastic pieces instead of die cast metal ones? I've seen lots of really bad Monopoly remakes, but this one takes the crab cake. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on February 4, 2010, 12:19 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
16 I just read an article about the "New and Improved" Monopoly: Dubbed "Monopoly Revolution" ...http://chattahbox.com/entertainment/2010/02/03/monopoly-board-game-goes-round-for-75th-anniversary/ .... If this isnt a Bone the Fish idea, I dont know what is!! I wonder if TV Guide had a hand in this idea? -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on February 4, 2010, 7:38 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
