Since 1933, the board game Monopoly has been the source of countless fights and arguments among friends and families. It's a great game. But most games need a bit of tweaking over time as players discover problems that reduce rather than exacerbate conflict. Accordingly, Hasbro, the company that owns Monopoly, has issued new rules. These rules are suggestions from players who have adapted the game to suit their own needs. Leanne Italie writes for the Associated Press:
The winning house rule for landing on Go means players get 400 Monopoly dollars instead of the official 200. As for Free Parking, official rules call for absolutely nothing to happen when a player lands there. Under the house rule, any taxes and fees collected are thrown into the middle for a lucky someone who lands on that corner square.
Rounding out the five winners are players must travel around the board one full time before they can begin buying properties, and collecting 500 bucks for rolling double ones.
What changes to the game would you make?
