Modified Monopoly

Finally, someone has come up with a good use for Monopoly.

Morton Ender, a Sociology Program Director at West Point Military Academy, uses modified rules for Monopoly to teach cadets about social inequality. He has the cadets play the game with varying rules regarding starting money, income passing go, limitations on where you can buy property (simulating racial discrimination) and rolling to keep yourself out of jail (for the wealthy).

See it here.

I would love to hear this man on Geek Speak.
