I never got how this awful game got so popular. People fantasizing about being rich during the depression?

As opposed to current games, which are primarily about crushing poverty and cobbling together meals from scavenged fast food remains.

I always thought of it as a way for elementary school kids to practice math in a fun format. But then, I've never, truly, ever actually finished a Monopoly game, and everyone always has some kind of house rules since nobody seems to ever want to read the real rules. Nobody ever plays the "auction" rule. Everyone has some kind of "free parking wins you stuff" rule.

It is a tremendously effective time-waster. I don't know if anyone else remembers a childhood before videogames or cable TV (gasp!), but by about the fifth week of summer break, a kid would run out of things to do, and would become desperate for any activity that might consume a chunk of the day. Monopoly was marginally better than eating paint chips for two hours; in fact that was their slogan.

Monopoly has actual rules? I thought it was just a random dice rolling game that people played until the power came back on.

If you follow the actual rules then when a person lands on a property if they don't buy it everyone bids on it immediately afterwards, and the game only lasts an hour or two. The problem is that people don't follow the fucking rules and make up their own game-breaking ones.

I've always found Monopoly to be more about negotiation than math

Sputum - 2010-06-18

The reason monopoly never seems to end is because people are always too nice and cut whoever is losing breaks. If you play it cut throat like you're supposed to it only lasts an hour.

The free parking rule is the worst in terms of prolonging things. It's almost as if randomly giving out money from the bank prevents anyone from going bankrupt.

"lots of truly inexplicable practice" this should be an easy link for PoeTV.

Wasn't there some Rock Band video where people were contesting to get the lowest score possible?

Monopoly: The only winning move is not to play!

glendower - 2010-06-18

For a truly enraging experience, try playing the game with real money.

Hooper_X - 2010-06-18

Rick, that is absolutely the most boring thing anyone could ever say whilst playing Monopoly.

For you, glendower.

So they math'ed out the quickest way to lose at Monopoly... Why go through the charade of trying to do it quickly?

It's obvious those aren't the numbers he's rolling (he even picked up the community chest card before they "knew" the other guy landed on it). This isn't the fastest monopoly game ever because they weren't really playing - it wasn't new to them, they weren't making choices - they knew every move beforehand.

Do you have a YouTube channel I can subscribe to?

dancingshadow - 2010-06-18

Are you Batman ?

Yakoo says you gotta do the monopoly by the book. You know you can't be lazy.

This was actually kind of my reaction. I just ain't write a fuckin' paragraph about it.

SWORD NECK - 2010-06-18

Visualize getting out of the house more often

The worst thing about monopoly (which I always win cause I am a cheating bellend) is the hundreds of different versions and millions of knock-offs.

VoilaIntruder - 2010-06-19

My hometown manufactured its own version about 15 years ago. It features 6 (!) different hot dog stands and about a dozen businesses and sports teams, more than half of which closed/left less than 2 years after it was released. Monopoly may have ruined our local economy.
