The Campaign For Real Monopoly - Critical Miss: Issue 10
[People don't play monopoly] 'because it's crap. It takes ages to play, suffering long action-free periods in which the players endlessly circle the board in search of the streets they need to complete a set, and lacks the interaction between players that we look for in a game. In short, it's boring and lacks skill. Except that it isn't crap. Actually. You just have to play it the way it was designed to be played.You just have to read the fucking rules.'
