That's right: according to the Critical Miss blog, the reason you haven't played Monopoly in so long -- so long you can't remember when you played it last -- is because you failed to do one important thing: read the rules on how the game is actually played.
I imagine that 99% of you are at this point exclaiming something along the lines of, "The fuck? Since when was that how you're supposed to play Monopoly?"
Take a deep breath. I know I've just rearranged what seems like one of the fundamental pillars of the world, like the fact that you can't travel faster than light, or the fact that the Wright brothers were the first to achieve powered flight, or the fact that the Swedes do porn and the Dutch do drugs.
But you're just going to have to accept it.
Those are the actual rules of Monopoly. Go and look at the rules in your set if you don't believe me.
