I don't make up rules, but I have left some out (I have never used the auctioning off rule, even though I knew it existed.) My family has always mostly played Monopoly Jr., which is a little less complicated and less lengthy as well. I own the LotR Monopoly which is a little different as well, so I guess I rarely actually play REAL Monopoly. lol

Another common rule modification involves abandoning/ignoring the auction rule. Under this rule, a property is supposed to be auctioned if the player who lands on the property cannot afford to buy it or chooses not to do so. The "free parking rule" mentioned in the poll and comments requires more creativity in my opinion.

You aren't supposed to get anything for landing on free parking.

When I was 10, I had this 5 year old cousin who kept throwing the dice at my crotch and stealing money from the bank . . I hated his rules. Surprisingly, he grew up to become an accountant.

Mostly I follow the rules... it's been a while since I played... but if I lose first, instead of abandoning the game, I roll the die and go around and complain about everyone else's hotels as I land on them.

We always did the free parking thing, and just learned THIS YEAR (at 32 and 34) about the auction rule! We always just skipped buying if we didn't want it/couldn't afford it! I HATED Monopoly growing up, bc it took hours...days...weeks...but I'm willing to give it another try, now that I know how it's supposed to be played!

I also just learned about the auction rule (at age 32) a few weeks ago when playing with my daughter. Playing that rule really helps the property to get purchased and keeps the game flowing.

i agree! i learned how to play the real way, the auctions, etc when i turned like 22 or something and it is SO MUCH MORE FUN.. and it also doesn't take as long to win..

It's interesting that Monopoly makes a game with credit cards instead of the colorful money because counting out that colorful money is a trademark of that game and a fun way to reinforce math skills.

I love the free parking rule! As a kid, Monopoly seemed tedious; however, as an adult, it is all about the challenge of dominating the other player! :) The last game I played with a group of friends lasted 4 hours!!! Nobody would concede and just declare a winner!

We play by the rules but as soon as all the money is out of the bank none can go in to make it quicker, but only sometimes.

What 's the fun if you don't play by the rules? Otherwise, it's called cheating! Grew up playing this game for days on end . I trusted the other players, and wanted
them to trust me! Values are important, and games are a good place to teach//learn them ! Winnings fun, but being a good loser is a life skill!

When 1 person doesn't play by the rules to his or her advantage, that is cheating.

When everyone plays with modified or new rules, that is simply house rules.

If everyone is playing by the same "made up" rules it's not "cheating". IMO of course.

We never use the auction rule! Part of the fun for me is how long the game lasts. We normally finish within the same day, but obviously we do not play continuously. We take breaks and stuff. We also do the free parking rule. We put $500 in the pot, and the income and luxury tax, and bail also go into the pot. It makes the game so much more fun!

Although we have the game, I haven't played it in years. When I did, I hardly ever played strictly by the rules. I just couldn't remember them, and the info with the rules went missing not too long after we got the game. Besides, it's more fun with your own rules, IMO.
