You just landed on my—OW!

With our attention so focused on the issue of video-game-related violence, have we neglected the tragic inevitability of board-game-related violence?
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A man was taken into custody Monday morning after a Monopoly game led to a stabbing, police said.
It happened in the 5200 block of East 29th Street at about 2:30 a.m.

The victim, who suffered a cut to his shoulder, walked to a police station a few blocks away to report the attack.

Investigators said two men were arguing over a Monopoly game when one man stabbed the other. Police said alcohol may have been involved.
Alcohol? Maybe it was a factor, but a more likely contributor could be the shifting rules that govern the use of the Free Parking space.
