A Forgotten Monopoly Rule

The Christmas holidays is for many the time to play board games with the whole extended family. It used to be for us, anyway in our family gathering. And if there is something that irritated me when we played board games with our family, is people making up rules or ignoring them altogether because they did not know any better. Like, for instance, having whoever has the highest roll of the dice starts in Cluedo. (It's Miss Scarlet who does.) But anyway, I wanted to point out to a forgotten rule in Monopoly which has got some public attention recently. Read this Daily Mail article. So basically, if someone lands on a property and they don't buy it, the property goes to auction and it goes to the highest bidder. Moral of the story: read the complete rulebook thorougly.
