^ I agree, I find it fun, but sometimes it can go on. :eek:

A way I learned is shuffling the properties and handing them out in the beginning, that way it moves a little quicker and people can exchange and trade if they please.

I find it boring, because there isn't that much to do in the first place, but mainly because the game is basically decided after a short while but to play through it will still take some more hours. So way too long end-game for my taste.

But yes, we always played with the free parking wins you money. It never occurred to us that this could make the game worse.

Those suggestions maybe actually make it better, but that only goes to show that Monopoly sellers (developpers, lol) didn't do their job properly.

And I don't buy that with the "most-played boardgame".

Preposterous! :vlol:

Monopoly doesn't need livening up. :p

And the utilities are hardly useless.

The only thing I hated about Monopoly was how there was so much cash, and how easily it got unorganized. But now there's electric Monopoly, which is perfect imo :)

Monopoly is great the way it is! Go and buy the Indiana Jones themed one if you need it to be more fun :p Seriously, mine's in a wooden crate style box and all too, it's bloody awesome.

Well, you buy whatever theme you like, but for me I prefer Indy because isn't Monopoly about achieving "Fortune and glory kid, fortune and glory"?

I've never played it. :confused:

But, with the new rules, it sounds fun.
