Ways to Improve Monopoly

Ways to Improve Monopoly, Erik
Arneson, Boardgames on About.com
Erik Arneson, our guide to Boardgames on About.com,
argues that Monopoly is great fun — the key is to play by the
rules, the real rules. ‘No, I don’t mean that we cheat,’ Arneson
writes. ‘Just that we don’t use some of the game’s most important
rules. In fact, most of us probably don’t even realize we’re doing
it.’ Like most who have played games of Monopoly that have dragged
on for hours, Arneson figures that by using Property Auctions,
Loans, and Free Parking without prize money, the game becomes more
competitive and finishes more quickly. If you’re still not
convinced that this will liven up the game, Arneson has created a
host of new rules to titillate you.
