No one plays Monopoly by the rules.
No one I know at least.
Growing up, I was taught the wrong rules, and have always thought I was playing by the rules, which leads me to believe that no one ever has read the rules.
1) Free parking is only free parking - no money, not even $500
2) You don't have to go around the board once before buying stuff
3) When someone lands on a property and doesn't buy it, it goes up for auction and anyone can buy it
(edit, Matt has quickly pointed out that I was wrong when I was attempting to get the rules right - hats off to Matt)
It is amazing how many times I have discussed this with people over the last few days and I have yet to find someone that knew all
Want to play?
