Originally, players made up their own rules to the game, until an official rule set was made.

Many tournaments do not allow for any extra rules, and those extra rules are often designed to make the game "easier", and eventually prolong it to absurdity.

One such addition popular in my family, was any Chance card payouts, and some other "payouts" would go to the "free parking" square. When a player landed on that square, they would receive that bonus.

People make up additional rules all the time. Perhaps they are just tired of never ending games.

I don't think I've ever even played Monopoly.

Basphemy!

Having not played Monopoly, that is not just un-American, it is un-Capitalist.

Monopoly is the truest definition of a capitalist game, for a capitalist society. As such I am surprised that it is not required curriculum for all government based/patriotic educational systems.

Surely you have at least played it at McDonald's?

What happens if you can't pay the 100 when you pass Go? Do you foreclose?

How can you not? You get $200 bucks!

My family doesn't play Monopoly very well. It seems to cause .. um rifts.. in how we get along with each other. Games are usually loud, someone always ends up in tears because they're getting evicted and the board normally dominates the end of the kitchen table or the entire coffee table for the better part of a week. Arguments over the rules... are very very common.

It was pretty much the same way for my family growing up.

Except it was largely due to my younger brothers being spoiled little brats, constantly competing with each other.

I think its just their need to prove that they can out think each other. The also get that way with Risk.. just not as heatedly. I don't know why Monopoly is such a pivotal game geeeesh.

Ive never finished a game actually, monopoly goes on forever if everyone acts "normal" until people get fed up with eachother or bored of the game and go play playstation.
