Years ago I saw a magazine (“Help”, I think) that gave good directions concerning how to cheat at Monopoly. The one that impressed me most was buying and building a Bridge (from the Bank) that would span Park Place and The Boardwaly, making it impossible for you to land on them, especially with hotels, and lose your shirt! Even included a paste-it-on-cardboard-and bend-up-the-sides bridge to use (longer span needed for three-property suites).

Please include a link to Cecil’s column if it’s on the straight dope web site.
To include a link, it can be as simple as including the web page location in thy post (make sure there is a space before and after the text of the URL).
I guess you’re referring to the column that can be found on-line at this link:
What is supposed to happen when you land on “Free Parking” in Monopoly?
