18 Things You’ve Been Doing Wrong Your Whole Life

This changes everything.

1. Playing Monopoly.

The rules are quite explicit: If you land on a property you can buy it. If you decide not to, the property can be auctioned off to all the other players.

The bidding can start at any price. Playing by these rules shortens the game dramatically, and makes it significantly less enraging.
