I'm the monopoly king. I never lose. My secret? The art of the deal. My family tries to counter this ability I have every single time we play. "OH NO. I'm not making ANY deals with you!" But then I offer them a deal so sweet they cannot possibly refuse. Just won another game by trading Park Place to the wife (she had Boardwalk) along with the entire row after GO for all 3 greens and dropped hotels on those bad boys. Decimated everyone by being the first to have hotels on the board. Hotels are the key boys, Trump knew all along.

And yes, you have to make them deal. But it needs to be a win-win for both parties. NEVER engage in a lose-win deal when you get the lose. Trump taught me that in the very book you mention, "The Art of the Deal".

I was crushing everyone at it on Xbox live.  People would quit mid game.  I found that I like the video game better because it eliminates the need for handling the money and any other cases of rule ambiguity

I'm pretty good. Use all the red houses and never go hotel. Sit back and wait for them to bankrupt themselves over time. Always works.

jcblass - has anyone ever played an entire game

I used to play week long games as a kid. Set board up on a table on the back porch and play against my neighbor every day after school, sometimes all weekend too. Folks thought we were crazy, but games can go on for a long time if playing a decent opponent. Still have that '70s board with all the metal pieces.

Why is this? Dice rolls are random. Are they like the ones right out of you get out of jail or something, so people going to jail which happens often hit those often and make them more desirable? Thanks!

Monopoly is my jam. I used to have all the best boards, including the special edition board that came out in the 90’s. Houses were made of silver, hotels were 18k gold plated silver. Pieces were pewter and the board was cherrywood. 
 

Had to downsize when I moved. I had 7 collectors boards. Now I only have the Michael Graves limited edition that Target released. 
 

I own and have read the book on strategies and tactics no less than 10 times. I know which properties have the highest probability of being landed on the most, and I can tell you what your chance/community chest cards say after hearing you read the first word or two. 
Nobody in my family will play me anymore, and if I play they all team up against me.

Going to jail can be very profitable in the later stages of the game.
