Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

When I was a kid our whole family would sit and play entire games quite often. I was the dog.

Poll needs another option: sure, but I am not sure why.

I wouldn't say all the time, but definitely more than once.

Thanks to up-to-the-minute tracking, I don't track my package so much as stalk it.

Yes, on my iPad playing against multiple AI players on the hardest settings. I can regularly beat all the AIs.

On family game night where we adjust the rules to make it more fun. Some of the things we do is make deals for properties and form corporations. You can go into a corporation with another player who has your similar properties and then split the money raised if someone else lands on it. You can buy the other person out or sell your shares for another deal. It is way more fun that way.

But then it's no longer a Monopoly.

Believe it or not it actually is. One person usually ends up owning more than half the board every time we play and has his/her hand in several corporations and wins by rule of the amount of property and money they have. The NEW monopoly isn't just owning one company. It is owning several and running them all as one big corporation. AKA Disney or Amazon or Alphabet

IIUC, if you play by the strict Monopoly rules (no house rules), the game should not take that long.

95% play till there's a winner.

5% due to other priorities.

Ah, the hell with it.
