Remember playing Monopoly as a kid?
Remember how it was always really long, and how there was always one kid who would be determined to win, and if he couldn\'t win fair and square, would cheat, and if he couldn\'t cheat, would refuse to play? You just knew it was going to be one of those games when they threw a tantrum because they couldn\'t have the sports car, didn\'t you?
Well, I have a sneaking suspicion that all those kids have become millionaires by using exactly the same tactics : cheating, throwing their toys out of the pram, back-stabbing their friends and generally being completely unethical in their pursuit of a fast buck.
Therefore, it seems to me that we should nip this tendency in the bud before it has a chance to become dominant. To bring this about, I have carefully designed The Monopoly Subversion Kit
