It took 37 years to learn this??

I just came across this website and realized I have been playing Monopoly (the board game) wrong my entire life! 

Following this simple rule would both make the game go faster (I definitely don’t have the time that I used to) … and more importantly, make the game more fun.

From the rules:

BUYING PROPERTY…Whenever you land on an unowned property you may buy that property from the Bank at its printed price. You receive the Title Deed card showing ownership; place it face up in front of you. (This part, I knew. The next part, not so much.)

If you do not wish to buy the property, the Banker sells it at auction to the highest bidder. The buyer pays the Bank the amount of the bid in cash and receives the Title Deed card for that property. Any player, including the one who declined the option to buy it at the printed price, may bid. Bidding may start at any price.

Read the rules. Genius.
