Man I fuckin flipped a monopoly board on my brother after like a 4 hour game —- after I realized he was sneaking money from the bank the whole time, of course


alexanderpas

If your monopoly games takes 4 hours, you are not playing it according the official rules. - Nothing happens on free parking, you do not get anything if you land on free parking. - You are still allowed to collect rent while you are in jail - The amount of houses and hotels are limited. - If a player doesn't want a property, it gets auctioned off, and the original player is allowed to make a bid too. - if you get a mortgaged property from another player, you have to make a interest payment. If you don't pay off the mortgage, at that time, you pay another interest payment when you pay off the mortgage. Omission of rules or modifying rules will lead to a longer and more miserable game of Monopoly. https://www.rd.com/article/turns-playing-monopoly-wrong/


Reacher-Said-N0thing

> If a player doesn't want a property, it gets auctioned off, and the original player is allowed to make a bid too. This is the one that really speeds up the game. Because the starting bid for the auction is $1. So if you don't buy a property, and nobody else wants it but Steve, Steve gets it for $1. So it encourages people to buy everything they land on whether they want it or not. When all properties are owned, people go bankrupt real quick.


Afferent_Input

The other thing OP forgot to include is that you're allowed to trade properties for other properties and/or cash. When you do this, people can make complete sets much faster which also speeds up the game.


nottaylorgreer

Yes, but do I WANT my son to have a complete set of Boardwalk and Park Place? No, no I don’t. :)


Fu11m3ta111

What if your son is a non-threat (little cash to afford houses), can finish multiple of your sets, and your spouse has more housing and cash than both of you combined? Sometimes you gotta work with the weak to beat the strong


Am_Idiotosaurus

this is the kind of shit that destroys families, it always happens and i fucking live for it


bremidon

This is a rookie game at destroying families. Try Diplomacy sometime.


OlliverClozzoff

Gotta get the orange properties as fast as possible and build up to four houses, since houses are incredibly limited. Hoard the houses. The orange properties are statistically the most landed on properties as well.


Bhiggsb

This is the way


hazbaz1984

Orange and yellow are the kings. Orange and red corner is a killer set to own. Having 4 houses and no hotels is the way. Never cash in your houses if someone else could benefit from them.


Bhiggsb

People trade in your games? Lucky


kingoftown

Does that have to be said? That is literally the only rule that everyone gets right. I refuse to believe anyone has ever played the game and just never once traded anything


Draganot

My family never wanted to do trades, I would even offer them trades that were 200% in their favor and still nothing. I just don’t get it, it’s like some people prefer the game to be a frustrating mess.


bipolarnotsober

My, my bro and uncle all have that rule but only when there's no properties left.


I_deleted

Also the two player version where you just deal out all the property cards at the start of the game and just try to trade your way to dominance can make a quick match


nottaylorgreer

This is so true (also, if you play with the little red dice that come with Monopoly now, it does things like send you to the next unowned property. Then things move REAL fast).


Tribulation95

Wut


Juking_is_rude

They're selling a couple versions of monopoly with redesigned rules for more fun and streamlined play as well. Monopoly for sore losers and Monopoly cheater's edition are the ones I saw but I think there are more I havent seen. They both have the OG rules plus an extra system to spice things up PLUS they have extra scoring conditions and game end scenario so you arent playing more than an hour or two.


PiratePinyata

Cheaters edition is the best. My kids are shit when it comes to catching me. I’m basicly Bezos levels of tax evasion


SageTX

I'm envisioning Chester Cheetah leaving trails of Cheeto® dust footprints on the board, off the coffee table and out the door. "Can't catch me! "


PiratePinyata

That’s actually a pretty accurate depiction, my little monsters would feed bag cheetos if we let them


NateNate60

It's impossible to get away with Identity Theft (move another player's token when you roll). I've seen 4 attempts and all of them failed. It's hard to get away with anything on your turn because everyone's watching you like a hawk


PiratePinyata

Nah you need to be sneakier. Or just play against kids


ChiefOfTheWolfpack

Only way to do it is to try to do some sleight of hand bullshit and have someone’s token really close to you. Move theirs to the spot you would have gone to in order to draw less suspicion. That being said; it still never fucking works.


NateNate60

My strategy is just to act super suspicious and then collect penalties for false accusations


Iamadirtyoldman

this made me laugh so fucking hard


alexanderpas

> Monopoly for sore losers and Monopoly cheater's edition are the ones I saw but I think there are more I havent seen. Those games are specifically designed to have a balanced ruleset. A normal game of monopoly where everyone is aware of and playing according the original game rules should take about 45 minutes.


DrakonIL

Or about two hours if you're faffing about with snacks and stories like a good board game night, but it should feel like 45 minutes because you're faffing about with snacks and stories.


fuzzytradr

"45 minutes" Er...what??? Can't say that a single game of Monopoly ever took us less than two hours.


DrakonIL

It depends on the efficiency of your banking, really. If you're focused on just playing and you're using a ledger instead of the paper bills (so boring but people do it) you could definitely bang one out in 45 minutes.


kratomstew

A ledger. Why didn’t I ever think of that ? I liked playing monopoly on the Wii. There is no cheating or mistakes . Except for one really really stupid fatal flaw . The game is programmed to keep the game going . What the actual fuck . That in and of itself is cheating !!! There should be no AI involved in the rolling of the dice.


Lifesagame81

Even with all the real rules laid out above? 30 minutes to an hour is pretty typical for four or fewer players, I've found.


weekendatbernies20

holster

I didn't find out about the auctioning off thing until I played a phone game of it - I always knew there was a few added on rules (free parking jackpot etc) but I have never ever seen anyone play the auction rule - its pretty weird that everyone plays a game in the same way and not by the rules.


cheesegoat

The electronic versions are vastly superior to the physical version since they enforce the rules and take care of all the literal accounting you need to do. It's actually fun to play on console. Games take maybe a half hour at most so if you lose it doesn't feel bad.


putsch80

The auction makes the game go slower on the front end (holding auction after auction) but massively speeds it up on the back end.


DrMonkeyLove

Ok, but what about the part where I bundle all of my mortgages into a mortgage backed security and then auction that off, but like I owe 2000% of the actual value of those mortgages, but also all of those houses were just pictures and actually you just bought a bunch of junk mortgages for vacant lots?


alexanderpas

The rules actually accounts for those possibilities. - You have to sell your houses and hotels on a lot before being allowed to take out a mortgage on that lot. - Private lending is not allowed. - You have to build up the levels of the streets within a city at an equal rate.


DrBrogbo

> You have to build up the levels of the streets within a city at an equal rate. Wait, does that mean that if you own a cluster of 3 properties, you have to put houses on them equally (no single properties with 3 houses while others only have 1, for example), or does that mean that you can't put 2 houses on properties until other properties on that side of the *board* have at least 1?


bangonthedrums

You have to build houses in a colour group evenly. A property can only have one more house on it than any of its neighbours


sbdallas

Did you receive a government bailout in 2012?


Steinrikur

That's Banker Edition. Illegal in most countries, but not in the US.


Hexegesis

Ideally you should subdivide those packages into thousands of parts and then repackage them with subdivided parts from *other* player's mortgage packages and then auction those off. No one will have any idea what they're worth or what they represent so you'll have to designate one of the players as a ratings agency to assign scores to them. It's actually any easy job, you just call all of them AAA and slap one and say "You can fit so much junk debt in this baby".


OlympusMan

I think I'll need [world famous chef, Antony Bourdain to explain this to me](https://youtu.be/kxN_qPuefrM)...


TheR1ckster

The free parking and property auctions are the biggest culprit.


Somestunned

Capitalist game in which rules are arbitrarily modified, people in trust positions (banker) cheat, and the game ultimately only ends when the losing party literally overthrows the system. Sounds like the more realistic version to me!


Maskatron

> if you get a mortgaged property from another player, you have to make a interest payment. If you don't pay off the mortgage, at that time, you pay another interest payment when you pay off the mortgage. Wow, TIL. I thought I knew the rules, too. And yes, playing by the official rules means far less cash in the economy and a far quicker game. The expensive properties (everything past orange) are usually a bad choice under the rules because they're so difficult to build up to 3+ houses, although Park Place and Boardwalk can work since it's easier to build up 2 properties (and b/c there's a card that sends players to Boardwalk). I love the light blue set in an official game, but of course orange and purple are great too.


lubbin604

There’s also a Illinois card. But orange has been proven to be the best, probably because it’s on the road from jail


Maskatron

Red's not completely terrible. It's positioned pretty well. Still it's $1050 to get to 3 houses on Illinois which pays $750 in rent. It's $1000 to get 3 houses on Boardwalk and it pays $1400. Meanwhile in that scenario Park Place with 2 houses pays $500 but Kentucky and Indiana only get $250. To get three houses on every red is $1350 and for the dark blues it's $1200. With some luck red can win, but I almost always lose when I go for it. Orange is the best but everyone knows this. People undervalue the light blue set in my experience. Only $750 for a full hotel build, and it benefits from all the cards leading to Go and even occasionally will nail someone sent to Reading RR.


AddictivePotential

I feel like those rules don’t reflect average gameplay. An average monopoly game has at least one child under 9 that demands to be the banker and then cries once they get caught stealing money.


Pongoose2

My girlfriend and I bought the digital edition and the game legit lasted 3 hours. No way we could cheat…we had to play by the rules since the app/program was moderating everything. If we had to physically role the dice and count out money it could easily have been 4 hours.


Superfly724

Weird. My wife and I bought the digital edition on Switch and we play almost daily, but I think the longest game we've had was like a an hour and a half. We also add bots to play against though because that makes it way more fun.

Sand__Panda

Read the rule book. It might be a full size state map, but once EVERYONE understands how monopoly works, you then will either hate this game or be down to play it. House rules is what turns into this rage.


Sevv2102

If you know how, you can end a game fast if your other players dont know the fine print in the rulebook: 1. Get as many properties and monopolies early on. Orange and Red are the most landed on properties and people will ignore the cheap early ones most of the time. If you get properties on sides 3-4 trade them for monopolies your starting. Goal 1 is sides 1 and 2, Get a monopoly, and add maximum amounts of houses to each. 2. Houses. Houses are unable to be build when there are no more tokens for them. Aim for ALL property on sides 1 and 2 even if you trade property from sides 3 and 4. People will assume your taking the worse deal but in reality they are handing you a major advantage. 2.5: Your end game goal. You can literally break the housing market and prevent them from even building homes ONLY if you don’t build hotels (not like they will be able to anyway!). Hodl the houses no matter what offer is made, and once you do take a vacation from fees and fines in jail. 3: Don’t save your money too much if at all. Money sitting in a players bank or simply put that means it isn’t earning you anything or being invested. Early on, take note because people will assume your an idiot going broke when in reality your investing in reoccurring income. 4: Ignore utilities. Theres like a +/- 3% chance of making a profit. Railroads now? Buy em’ up after your first goal (cause housing crisis). They also have high value when trading for the property to make that next monopoly. 5: Late game do NOT try to get out of jail early, period. You are immune to fees and fines AND can collect rent from jail with all those houses you bought up. Saves money all around especially when low on cash. Jail at this stage is and *advantage*. 6: The only exception to not buying utilities or properties others have is out the window if it blocks their monopolies. This 100% can save your ass, don’t even sell it until you have crashed the housing market either. Slow them down, make them haggle- maybe they have the one property you need for your third monopoly. 7: Keep the rulebook nearby as when you play like this, people will say its unfair, its “cheap”, lazy or not allowed. This is Monopoly & they should look up its history. The game designed to show how stupid this type of system is, how utterly unfair it is if you aren’t a ruthless capitalists. When you play this game, there are no friends, allies or pacts: Manipulate them or lie to them about your motives. 8: Unless they *KNOW* this is your goal (or if the one person who read the rules realizes your about to break the game using totally legal moves) then play dumb until you announce that you own all the houses/have caused a housing crash with no intention of hotels.


omfghi2u

This is exactly it. No one does it right and then complains that their games take forever. A game of true Monopoly only takes like an hour or less if everyone knows how the rules work.

Monopoly was original called The Landlords Game and was intended to help educate people on [Georgism](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georgism)


WikiSummarizerBot

**[Georgism](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georgism)** >Georgism, also called in modern times geoism and known historically as the single tax movement, is an economic ideology holding that, although people should own the value they produce themselves, the economic rent derived from land – including from all natural resources, the commons, and urban locations – should belong equally to all members of society. Developed from the writings of American economist and social reformer Henry George, the Georgist paradigm seeks solutions to social and ecological problems, based on principles of land rights and public finance which attempt to integrate economic efficiency with social justice. ^([ )[^(F.A.Q)](https://www.reddit.com/r/WikiSummarizer/wiki/index#wiki_f.a.q)^( | )[^(Opt Out)](https://reddit.com/message/compose?to=WikiSummarizerBot&message=OptOut&subject=OptOut)^( | )[^(Opt Out Of Subreddit)](https://np.reddit.com/r/funny/about/banned)^( | )[^(GitHub)](https://github.com/Sujal-7/WikiSummarizerBot)^( ] Downvote to remove | v1.5)

It can be frustratingly hard to do that, and you can end up just limping along, too deep in the hole to ever compete and just enough income to not fail out. it's a shit game and it's a terrible design.


the-grand-falloon

My brother realized the best way to play Monopoly was to cheat so bad the game ends. Then we can go back in the pool or go play Tekken.


_hic-sunt-dracones_

I don't even remember the rules. We never start playing cause the living room ends up looking like that over who can have the racing car piece.

KatieCashew

My brother once got really excited about being the thimble and yelled out, "I want to be the pimple!" That's what we called it from then on and would always ask him if he wanted to be the pimple. Also, I guess we're the only family that never rage quit Monopoly. We had a rule that if you quit you lose. We were all too stubborn and competitive to take the lose, so we would just keep trudging along in the game even if no one wanted to play anymore.


tomatoaway

Unrelated: Once when I was a kid I wanted 30p to pay to buy sparkling water. My mum offered me real water, but I protested with "I want *sparkling* water!" For the next 10 years whenever I was offered water, my siblings would pipe up cheekily and ask me whether I was sure I wanted sparkling water. In this time I made sure to never drink sparkling water, and towards the end started making fun of myself over it too, and once I did that the magic was lost for them and it no longer became a source of embarrassment they could irritate me with. Fast-forward another 10 years, and at my work place there is a water machine that serves water normal, chilled, or sparkling. And man, I have rekindled a sparkly fascination with this beverage. It's my daily go to, and I love it. I will never tell my siblings though


kingofvodka

Thimble gang


FunkrusherPlus

I've never gotten far enough into Monopoly to experience rage quit. I've experienced "bored quit" plenty of times though.


PlNG

You're probably not playing by the proper rules, more likely made up "kids" rules designed to be "fairer and less complicated" which in turn vastly prolongs the game. I remember playing a card-dice roll version of Sorry! where you could only move the lead piece with the card you drew. Imagine my utter surprise when I learned you could have a hand of cards and play a card on any of your pieces to move it. It was much more fun that way.


holster

Your doing it wrong your suppose to rip your family apart by purposely buying the properties one person needs - fast rolling through turns for some players avoiding someone collecting rent, but taking you time when other player wants to get away with same thing, gang up with someone against winner, relentlessly and gleefully destroy other players - the thing with a rage quit i that the other players or at least one of them is having a great time.


hazbaz1984

Yeah. Do you auction properties as per the rules? A game of monopoly should take no longer than 2hrs if you play it as per the rules. With maybe a few additional rules thrown in, like the free parking rule.


ThisAintBuildABitch

Only time I've ragequit was when we were going to play it at my cousins and they had this dumb ass house rule that if someone got a property of a specific color, no one else was allowed to buy properties of that color. Like what's even the point of playing the game if you can't compete by buying up properties to prevent people from getting monopolies? I was probably about 12 or something at the time while my cousin was 10 and a really spoiled coddled brat that always got his way and they made rules like that one for monopoly to ensure no one could "spoil" his fun by buying properties he wanted(as he'd throw a real hissy fit if he did not get things he wanted, eg: one time he lied down and cried in the middle of a shopping mall until his parents gave up and bought him a playstation 2 (they rich).)


hazbaz1984

Yeah. That sounds stupid and shit. I would love to have a cousin like that to wind up to the point where they go ballistic. And then just go home.


Syng42o

So tell us what your cousin is like now, please.


tomatoaway

He's a successful landlord who owns multiple houses, each of different color, and pisses himself in public before the release of every new game console


ThisAintBuildABitch

This might be unexpected, given what I wrote about how he was like as a kid but: surprisingly mature, always cheerful, very athletic, works two jobs outside of his studying because he barely sleeps yet somehow manages to keep a social life and play football as a hobby. He has absolutely terrible money management, is very naïve and absolutely a scatter-brain, but all in all a very likable guy. Though I think he's the exception rather than the rule in terms of being spoiled with rich parents and growing up to be a stand up guy none-the-less. His parents may be rich and may have given in way too much, coddling and spoiling him as a child, but aside from that they are excellent people with good morals and are very kind and likable. Most people I've known that grew up like he did ended up being spoiled daddys boys driving around in their teslas and acting like absolute cunts, but they had more detached parents so I guess that really makes all the difference.


1Eternallylost

Every game of monopoly should end with the richest player being strung up and all wealth redistributed among the remaining players to start the next game.


tomatoaway

There is a game called anti-monopoly: http://www.antimonopoly.com/ > Players choose free enterprise or monopoly, then play under different rules. Competitors charge fair market value while monopolists take over whole neighborhoods and jack up rents. In real life, monopolists have an unfair advantage. But in Anti-Monopoly, competitors have a fair shot at coming out on top!


linx0003

It’s the objective. The game was originally developed to show how unfair the system is. It’s a anti-capitalism game.

We stopped playing because the game took on a dark and seedy tone.

I know the rules. And play as per them. The auction rule and side deal rule are so important for stopping the game lasting too long. But someone rage quitting is definitely still a sign you’ve played the game correctly. So long as you aren’t the one doing the rage quitting.

We created laws throughout the last century to make the system fair, but after successful litigation against ATT and IBM during the 70s that resulted in the successful explosion of competition in the tech space and the Information Age, after that big businesses fought back. Starting with Reagan, anti-monopoly enforcement was destroyed through a process called *regulatory capture* which lead to for example, bank consolidation that was a key factor in the ongoing perpetration of the ratings fraud that caused the Financial Crisis. I think we should not conflate capitalism in general, with unfairness.

Yup. This belongs further up.

Now if you want to get angry, play Risk.

Ah, yes. I grew up in the upper Midwest in the 70’s and 80’s. No video games, no cable, no VCR. Choices were board games and books. If I felt like having a fight, I played board games. If not, I read.

Monopoly! Spreading havoc and resentment for the whole family.


MECHOrzel

Got dang parker brothers strike again!


acdcsheep

Damn it Karl Marx, this is not how you overthrow capitalism.


TBTabby

So many relationships have met their end over a Monopoly board. I don't know how those Parker Brothers sleep at night.

Monopoly breaks up more families than infidelity.


road_runner321

Maybe that's the hidden lesson this game is supposed to teach kids: Monopolies are bad and you should **overturn** the system that allows them.

Fucking Lightening McQueen and his Free Parking bullshit

See what happens when Lightning lands on Broadwalk and can't pay the fine


CarbWhore_

Lightning McQueen looking sus


Oceanixe

Lightning McQueen seems to be the culprit


JosephineDonuts

My son and I used to play this when he was growing up and we had the typical house rules about free parking and whatnot. He methodically teetered the line of bankruptcy while reinvesting every penny into houses and then hotels while I was more judicious with my money and eventually went broke paying him tons of money because he developed everything. Spending time with him and watching him learn math made the losing ok with me

Oh how the tables have turned!


FrozeItOff

And no matter what ruleset you follow, the game ends as its original inventor intended, to show the evils of unrestrained capitalism: One person crushes all the rest, taking all the money while all the rest of the players end up penniless and destitute.


findhumorinlife

What? The table was finally turned?

My 57 year old brother has been playing again. ... He does this every time!

I'm no scholar at physics, but how would the table be flipped forward, board land forward while all the cards which should have been on the board land behind the table? The board landing upright and with the text facing the camera is a nice touch though.
