    Playing games wrong: AIB board games

    When you were a kid (or even a grown kid) and played Monopoly who put all the fines in a kitty which one would win by landing on 'Free Parking'? How about getting paid $400 when landing directly on 'Go'? You DO realize there is no reference to either practice in the actual rules - yet it is a common house rule. Also, who put properties up for auction when someone declined to buy? Nope, I didn't either - yet the official rules say this IS what you're supposed to do.

    I only had one sibling so my brother would always create a dummy hand (which you could peek at one card when it was your turn) when playing Clue and probably incorporated a hundred other made up rules with several games to make accomodation for two players playing a multi-player game.

    Who else made up their own rules or played games 'wrong'?
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor
