Why don't people question the rules for Monopoly more often? If they changed them some they could create a more realistic property ownership game.
People like standard rules, default settings, and vanilla ice cream. For those that don't there are plenty of oppurtunity for variation. But for most people, the standard rules make a fun game that doesn't require any more investment to get started than a few hours and $10 for a couple of fantasy mags before the draft.
Good extra monoploy rule: You can only buy two properties the first time around. Eliminates that luck roller who gets doubles and gets to buy like 5 properties the first time. Really evens things out for the rest of the game. Try it out.
