According to the rules, no one can be forced to trade with anyone they don’t wish to and properties are acquired by chance landings or the strategic use of cash. You may notice that the game always ends in the same manner: one player gets all the money. I would argue that this stands as a rea...

I distinctly remember my friend Oscar’s response when we asked him about his tuition.

“Is everyone okay? I’m seeing what's happening,” I said to my sister over the phone on the night of Sunday, October 1. I stared at my laptop as I watched live coverage of the shooting in Las Vegas.
