    Summary

    The opening scene in The Lost Mine, told from Hercule Poirot's point of view. The fact that there hasn't yet been a murder actually precipitated by playing Monopoly is something astonishing in and of itself.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Ridiculous little game. How did this sort of thing tend towards domestic felicity, hmm? Even as a demonstration of an unsound economic policy, the game itself was a threat to the very fabric of civilized society! If every husband in the country grew as condescending as Hastings when they played this game, well. Scarce wonder that Poirot had plenty of work to keep him in the black! Of far more minor affronts to good sense were broken marriages and dead spouses made.
