Did you know that Mr Monopoly — the iconic, mustachioed, round little man in a top hat and coattails who also happens to be the official mascot of the Monopoly board game — has his own Facebook page? It’s not your typical lame corporate website, however. Instead, Mr Monopoly is taking suggestions, inviting people to make changes to his classic game. From Mr Monopoly’s website:
We all know there are many ways to play Monopoly … and they’re not always according to the rule book. Here’s your chance to see your favorite house rule become a part of the Monopoly game!
By the way, is Mr Monopoly’s Facebook page a sign of things to come? Do you expect the makers of the other board games to ask their players directly via the world wide web for rule suggestions? Will the US Congress or the UK Parliament try this method one day? But back to the subject at hand, if you could change any of the official rules of Monopoly, or add a new rule to the game, which rule would you change or add, and why?
