I am so 100% in favor of this. I really like Monopoly, but no one else does. I like playing it by the rules, but everyone is always surprised and confused by property auctions, and people insist on stupid rules like money for free parking. When played properly, using the actual rules, the game is much more interesting. I didn’t know about the two house rules often used at tournaments, but now that I do I am going to insist on them.
the last house rule alone (no ones) probably would have saved several days of my life when I was a kid.
Other than that no-ones house rule, this describes how I’ve almost always played… and it’s still decidedly mediocre (and yes, I do the property auctions!)
In that case Kevin, you must have mediocre opponents!
