    I reckon that most families play monopoly at some time or other, and have little rules of their own to make the game easier or more interesting.

    In our family, we do the following:

    1. Put a note of the highest value in the centre, and put all the fines, taxes, etc on top of it.
    When someone  lands on "Free Parking", they collect the loot as a bonus.

    Then another highest value note is put in the middle, and the process continues.

    What modifications to you make to the rules of the game when you play it?

    Well, being the eldest of three brothers, I was careful to ensure I was always the banker. wink

    The game always ended at our place when the FIRST person went bankrupt.

    And we used to lend each other money to prevent that catastrophe from occurring ...

    At our house when bankruptcy was near we would sell real life chores for more mullah...there was a time (twenty some years ago)when my son didn't have to do any of his chores for almost a month. Don't think that my daughter didn't grumble about that.(He, till this day considers himself the king of monopoly). On that note we haven't played for quite a while I think we will have to do something about knocking his crown off soon.

    We also do the following:

    1.  Add $500 to the free parking and never leave it empty;
    2.  Anyone lands in free parking gets the moola;
    3.  Have made new bills in millions, billions;
    4.  Game never ends until all players agree to end;
    5.  Bankruptcy doesn't happen -- bank or other player can lend interest free money.

    The board is still out and on the play!
