monopoly-carAustralian Monopoly players are competing in the 2009 Australian Monopoly Championships in a bid to land a place in the World Championships that will take place in Las Vegas.

One unusual note about the games, pointed out to me by my hat tipper: they use three dice to “speed up the game”. I’m not sure how that works. What are the rules for this? Doubles? Don’t you pass Go more often and pump more money into the game?

FWIW, Monopoly: Mega from Winning Moves has three dice with clearly defined rules, but the third die is a specially crafted die for that game.
