It’s never that serious
Harder than other games
I know its not related but can you Guys Cover whats going on in India?
Go first. That’s the best strategy for success
Middle school. During an ill-fated game with my family while we were on vacation, I received a lifetime ban from ever playing monopoly again. It was deserved. Things might have been said and pieces thrown. I've been a happier person since the ban. And now you're tempting me back. But I won't go back, I can't go back. I'm banned. For life.
#0: be a business major and/or a sociopath (the two tend to correlate)
And Don't use the Win money in Free Parking rule. It makes the game longer
There's a fair few games with AI players that do the houses trick in the hardest setting, it's really mean but a very legit strategy 😂
I'm sorry, in what world is "play by the rules" a "tip"? 🤨🙄
Tip 1: Play a better boardgame
Tip 2: When playing monopoly, don't
Tip 3: Instead of using house rules, throw away the game and learn Catan Rules instead
Or do my strategy: insist on Realism rules.
One player starts owning all spaces aside from one colour (their choice), and starts with $5000 while all other players start with $500. If the designated player ever runs out of money they can take interest-free loans from the bank at no cost while the other players lose the game. Oh, and the chosen player gets to decide how much the other players get when they pass GO and how much they pay in rent when landing on their property. Also that player can't go to jail.
Somehow no one wants to play it with me though :c
One thing I will never do is play by the rules
Ever since I saw a video talking about the hoard houses strat, I've wanted to do it, but no game I've ever played gets to that point. The houses never get close to running out before someone gets an unlucky roll and has to sell some houses.
And while orange is undeniably the best color, this fact means nobody ever trades to give someone else a monopoly of it, so in a way it becomes the worst color. I much prefer brown and blue because there's only 2 of each. Railroads are also great.
Monopoly shouldnt be played, its garbage
If the player who lands on a spot refuse to buy and then the land goes to auction, does the said player who landed has the right to bid for the aforementioned land as well?
The only winning move in monopoly is to never have a game of monopoly anywhere near you.
If you didn't throw the board away, did you even play Monopoly?
You can build hotels on New York avenue because a lot of people land there
I don’t think anyone in my family has ever read the rules to monopoly lol we just play how it seems like u should
Is flipping the board not a good strategy?
I once played that game six hours with my family. We didn't notice 😅
What was the longest you played it?
No ones talking about park place and boardwalk?!? Wow
I have an even better tip:
Don’t play Monopoly. If you want to have a good time there’s a ton of better board games out there. In my opinion playing Monopoly is like eating French fries without potatoes.
How to win at monopoly, step 1, discard monopoly
My mom divorced my dad because when he won he said, "that's why you just ain't good enough." And my mom interacted him until she found out he had a side chick
Dumbarse, 7+7=14, putting you on trafalgar
Welcone to capitalism my friend
Forced my friends to play by the rules once and they all complained until we actually finished the game in one sitting where most of them said they had never finished a game before lol
Rule 1: Bring a gun
If I have a monopoly and the money for the house, I don't care if it's Pennies. I'm getting house
Step one: be the banker
Thank you man, I can't wait to ruin my friendships.
One time my friend took my 100 but like without reason but I didn't wanna seem rude so he just had a 100 extra
Even better: inherit money from the last monopoly winner
No I am going to keep cheating and gaslight about it
the pink and orange have the most cheapest house so i bought it all…. i won
Monopoly rules are straight trash and I will never play by them
I have enough of a hard time maintaining friendships making up rules, thanks. I'm not about to become a stickler for some 100y/o boardgame.
There is a reason no one plays by the rules.
The game is kinda boring
Also, if the property costs more than any of the other players’ money (and you have more) then auction to save money
