Free Parking

Follow-up to House Rules for Monopoly from The randomness of tomorrow, today!

A comment in my previous entry

I love that everyone has their own monopoly rules, its great! Gives the game a bit of variety and argumentation :)

reminded me of something; you'd always think that your house rules are unique, since you made them up, but there's one rule in particular that everyone seems to know, even if they don't like it. I don't believe it's ever been in the official rules, either as a rule or a suggestion for a house rule (I may be wrong) but it's so well know it actually made it into the proper rules for the Make-Your-Own-Opoly game.

So, how many people put fines in the middle of the board and win them by landing on Free Parking?

House Rules for Monopoly

I've never understood the rule some people have for Monopoly that you can't buy properties on your first lap. All it means is that instead of the person who rolls the highest that gets to buy everything, it's the person who rolls the highest…

It just doesn't make sense to me, although it is funny when people keep getting sent to jail on the first lap.

There is no spoon…

For reasons best known to itself, my Desktop – while quite happy with the existance of Wireless Network Adapters – refuses to acknowledge that there are such things as Wireless Networks; apparently the wireless router that's been fine for the past 5 terms is now no longer in range…
So, if I want to get online I have to take my laptop (which also won't connect wirelessly; I always have trouble with it; it's Linux, so is more manual and I've never got the hang of the subtleties) downstairs and plug the cable into the router. The annoying this is they were both working fine with the wireless router at home on Friday…
Also, I've just lost at Monopoly; it was supposed to finish by 12, but got interesting and actually went on 'til nearer 2.
As an aside, any spelling mistakes are due to being tired…
