    We all know the Monopoly rules right? You roll dice, move your piece, buy property, and… five hours later we're tired and bored and HATE MONOPOLY in general. Why? Because MONOPOLY IS TERRIBLE, right? Well, actually maybe not. The Monopoly game we think we're playing is actually something COMPLETELY DIFFERENT than the one we actually play. Whether this is Monopoly online, the Monopoly board game, or even CAT MONOPOLY, we approach the game almost completely wrong. But why? WHY?! Watch this week's episode of PBS Game/Show and find out!
