Isn’t the whole fun of that game to lie, scheme, plot, threaten, cajole and ultimately screw everyone else before they do it to you?[/quote]
I’m not sure the game is complex enough to incorporate all of these things. I don’t know that I’ve ever had occasion to lie in Monopoly - it’s all about the money. The only way I know to be marginally dishonest (aside from skimming from the bank) in that game is to not tell someone who isn’t paying attention that you landed on his property.
That’s just not right.
Doesn’t “anything goes” mean there are no rules?

What’s so wrong about found money? It’s a part of life, is it not? Think of it as government subsidies or changes in tax or accounting laws that allow businesses big tax breaks or one time writeoffs. It’s all perfectly plausible.
