Monopoly – Last line

Rules in Scrum - Monopoly board

The dreaded last streets of the old French Monopoly.

Much like when I was playing Monopoly with my family as a kid, we would sometimes bend the rules when they were getting in the way of shared enjoyment. For instance the owner of a hotel on the infamous Champs Elysées or Rue de la Paix (the most expensive squares on the French board) would give a free passage to a loosing player; this would give the laggard a chance to recover on the next turn, so that we could all continue to play and enjoy the game.
