    I did not laugh out loud at this post, but I did nod slowly and savour its fine craftsmanship.

    I always thought that the guys that made the Clue movie should've made a Monopoly movie that was basically just rich old men with silly mustaches dicking each other over for two hours.

    There is a picture I would like to show you, it's called "lemonp

    oh

    "over"

    my bad.

    Shut up it's fucking Monopoly it's a goddamn board game shut up
    Wiggin obviously we don't understand fun we obviously as someone else mentioned have not been a monopoly club president so we can't relate.

    Honestly Defender's opinions aren't usually too bad

    it's the WELL YOU DON'T MAKE GAMES YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT MAKES THEM BETTER

    Well fuck I know what makes ME think it's better

    I know what I, Donald K Wiggin, enjoy doing

    And I could not give less of a shit about the other guy if I tried

    Wiggin, I don't think I have ever agreed with you before, but here's for the first time.

    That's a good defense, too, Wiggin. "It's just a fucking X" where X is the category of the thing you don't understand because you're a goddamn retard. It's just a movie. It's just a comic book. It's just a painting. All that means is "I don't understand it, but I assume that it must be completely shallow and meaningless based on what medium it is."

    Also, Wiggin, try reading my actual statement. It wasn't just "you don't make games and therefore don't get it." I did mention that, but I also gave actual information.

    Monopoly is a criticism of unregulated capitalism. It purposely has feedback loops built in, where one player buys property which both makes him money (so he can buy more property and be insulated from bankruptcy/defeat), and takes away money from his opponents (so they cannot buy property and are pulled closer to bankruptcy/defeat).

    Giving large chunks of money to players at random fucks up the balance, draws defeats out even longer than they already are, and weakens the statement that unregulated capitalism creates socially-dangerous corporate juggernauts.

    But hey, you're a fucking idiot who barely has two brain cells to rub together, so of course you wouldn't notice these mechanics at all and would just assume that it's "just a board game" and that games are designed by randomly throwing arbitrary rules together without trying to express any meaningful ideas or construct specific mechanics.

    And arguing that you like it better and therefore it is better is fucking stupid. It's like a world-class chef has prepared a meal, and you've taken that meal, dunked it in the toilet, and said "I made it better! I know more than the chef." Seriously, you took a world-famous game that's been around way longer than you, put in a rule that actually fucks it up in several ways, and claimed you know what's up.

    Just as a general life hint, people who are regarded as experts in their fields are only very very rarely complete morons in those fields. You, on the other hand, are an idiot. If you vehemently disagree, it's probably not because the expert is wrong.

    Not even gonna pretend to read this because you know you were doing the same thing you always do

    Also nobody said you were a moron

    Just that you always do this and guess what

    Nobody cares that from a technical hurdedurp

    Fuck it we know how we want to have fun

    And if that means someone gets the goddamn free parking money THEY GET THE GODDAMN MONEY

    Awesome. Any slight inclination I might have had to play Monopoly ever again has been completely quashed by reading this thread. Next Thanksgiving somebody will mention it and I'll have horrific flashbacks to this discussion and they'll have to lure me off the roof with booze and pumpkin pie.

    Pumpkin pie is fucking delicious. It is so delicious that I refuse to eat it more than once a year. I have not had a good sweet potato pie, but that does not mean they are all awful, obv.

    Yeah there's a reason I'm not reading this beyond too many goddamn words to describe why adding house rules is a "bad thing"

    Namely, it's utterly retarded and ruins Monopoly

    As a designer, it's your job to make a game enjoyable for people who play it. If it is not, then the design is a bad one. Even if it isn't a bad design, people will modify it for their experience, and you cannot control this beyond making a good design in the first place.

    God knows I could use some new material. Last year I'm afraid everyone could tell my heart really wasn't in it. All I got out of it was a can of warm Budweiser and some leftover Halloween candy.

    A philistine.

    The second sentence has one comma. Not zero, not two like it would usually have, just one. This symbolises indecision, or "a lack of a firm stance".
