Is it just the people I grew up playing with, but aren't you supposed to cheat at Monopoly--not paying if you land on a square, stealing money from the bank, taking money for passing "Go" twice, miscounting as you move forward? Seriously, I remember people cheating at Monopoly left and right and it was all expected and okay.
So, how exactly do you teach that to kids? Um, kids, yeah, go ahead and cheat like fiends, anyway you can. Good luck being sneaky and dishonest. Here, I'll give you some tips. But only with Monopoly, not at any other game. Is that really the lesson we want to teach, that cheating with money and business is the only way to win?
No wonder I just don't like playing games.
