For the most part, I view it like playing Monopoly -- sometimes you land in jail.

    Cool! As a kid, if we landed on Free Parking we got a bunch of money.

    Through the years, I know I have made a lot of people angry over suspensions. I wish to say that I'm trying to police this board as best I can and it should be expected that there will be disagreements about it. Such disagreements have become heated at times, to which I'm known to get snippy.

    I just wish to say that, except for two people, I harbor no hard personal feelings about any member of the forum and wish everyone else well. It is not my intention to cause any stress or hard feelings. For the most part, I view it like playing Monopoly -- sometimes you land in jail.

    I hate that rule! It is not to be found in the original Parker Brothers rules. Monopoly is a carefully designed balance between skill and luck. The free parking rule only throws this off balance, by making it too much luck. Too often does a good competitive game get ruined by one player getting a windfall from free parking and building hotels on all over the board.
    It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

    yeah. it would be far better if there were limits on the number of houses/hotels one could accumulate.
    All persons reading my posts gamble at their own risk, as I do. I don't ordinarily dispute math. I may dispute math I don't understand, or if I think it's faulty. I am not a conspiracy theorist.

    no, just that some players can gobble up too many properties that it makes a lopsided game too quickly

    Why, it's almost as if they've monopolized the limited resources for exploitation.
