Monopoly–the game that everyone knows and loves. It’s a fun game, right? You sit down and have some quality time with your family and friends while playing this board game. Wrong.

It’s not just a board game.

It’s a game of money and greed. An innocent game of Monopoly quickly turns into a massacre, where the rich take advantage of the poor and segregation is at an all-time high. It will destroy even the closest relationships and make you go on a murderous rampage.

 It’s Christmas time–a time of giving and cheer. All of your siblings and cousins are gathered around the table at your aunt’s house at dinner and your cousin brings out the monopoly board. You will notice a pattern here; the person who always pitches the idea will either be the infamous Monopoly winner/cheater. But, because of the peer pressure in the room, everyone else just goes along with it. Sound familiar? That’s because you’ve probably been a victim.

1. You get stuck being the wheel barrel piece

All because you were too slow on the draw! Look, the game has already started on a bad note. Let’s be honest here…the wheel barrel piece is not cool.

2. You just can’t seem to land on a property

A lot of dice rolling and waiting around happens in the first 10 minutes of the game. Your goal is simple: land on a spot. But apparently the Monopoly gods aren’t in you favor today, since you can only seem to land on chance or end up in jail. Get ready to fork up some useless cash to pay taxes or to bail yourself out.

3. Out of freakish luck you roll three triples in a row and get sent to jail

Why should you get punished for that? Who made these rules?!

4. There is always an unspoken alliance between two people

It’s almost always the two people who will team up and cheat their way to the top. You already know it’s going to happen before the game starts. You should just play with your dog instead.

5. Your banker is being shady and you don’t find out until it’s too late

He’s taking all the $100 bills and hiding them under the table to use them to help him and his alliances. He’s probably shortchanging you too! This is why the banker always wins.

7. Your cheating cousin is selective in choosing who pays rent on his Boardwalk property

…but you always seem to be the one paying.

8. You are one card shy of getting a hotel but your opponent(so-called sibling) decides to hold it ransom for an insane amount of money

You’re screwed. Just quit now because you’re never going to get it.

9. You go to the bathroom and come back only to find that everyone at the table just conspired against you and wants to kick you out of the game first

Everyone gets a deal except for you. This is when you just leave.

10. They even rolled a few times while you were gone. They probably landed on your property and didn’t pay you.

The world is not fair.

 11. You’re losing too much money too fast. Bankruptcy is coming and it’s inevitable.

RUN FOR YOUR LIFE. If you can’t make it in monopoly, you can’t make it in real life.

12. The point in the game where you’re either laughing or barely hanging on

Usually it’s the second one. This game is so corrupt.

This is your opponent:

14. 3 hours later, Monopoly has taken you for all your worth and there’s nothing you can do about it

You’re broke and miserable thanks to this game. This is when you exit the room and turn antisocial for the rest of the night.

15. Your sibling who got kicked out first ends up flipping the board so nobody can win

This is why we can’t have nice things…
