Monopoly Rules

So for Christmas, Santa brought two Monopoly sets. A Junior Monopoly that is a bit easier for the kids to play, and "regular" Monopoly which we decided to fire up a few days ago. 4-year old Kyle was on my team, and 7-year old Dirk was with Wendy. While I had the upper hand for a while, the dice turned against me and it was downhill from there. I was getting pummelled, but instead of running out of cash, Dirk and Wendy were willing to take properties. They ended up owning the whole board, and even with some then amazing rolls (I kept landing on Free Parking), I was finally down to my last dollar.

I should have taken a picture of the board, but every property had hotels or 4 houses on it as I rolled the dice while holding on to my last dollar ... and landed on "Go to Jail." So I'm thinking what are the Monopoly Rules for this situation - I don't have the $50 to bail me outa jail. And even if I roll doubles, everywhere I land bankrupts me. But then I roll double-sixes ... which puts you on the Chance spot ... HEY, not bad! ;-)

I draw the card ... and it says "pay poor tax of $15" - boy, was that ever a unique way to lose!

Lol, now that was funny.

I played Monopoly myself with the relatives. Age is from 7-80 and it is sooo funny!

You can really see the enthusiasm of the kids and the conservatism of the grannies ...

But I like Cleudo more actually, too much luck in Monopoly.
