All these years, and we've all been playing Monopoly wrong [link]. Can you believe it? I never had a clue, but it turns out there's a rule that says if the person who lands on a spot doesn't want to buy it, the place should be auctioned off to the highest bidder.
I feel as if I've been betrayed, Hasbro.
How did none of us ever realise we were playing that god damned game wrong all these years? Did no one bother to read the rules? Okay, so it's not like I read them either, but surely someone at some point saw that rule and thought, "Hmm, maybe we should start playing this way. If we do, we'll probably be finished in time for dinner instead of some time next Thursday".
What are we going to find out next? That the left hand right foot part of Twister was meant to be a suggestion rather than law? That correct spelling wasn't necessary in Scrabble? That Hungry Hungry Hippo was meant to be about skill and dexterity rather than mashing that little lever as hard and as fast as we possibly could?
I just ... I feel like the carpet's been pulled out from under my feet. A world where a game of Monopoly can be finished in an hour?
This is going to take some getting used to.
