I am writing this email concerning a game of Monopoly I am playing. I volunteer at a local nursing home every weekday after school. Generally I just keep the residents company. As part of this, I began playing a game of Monopoly with Thelma, Rodger, and Julie. Because I am playing at a nursing home, the play tends to be very slow. We have been playing this particular game for almost 2 weeks. We are all EXTREMELY into this game. However, we have come across and problem and need your assistance.
Julie died earlier today. Now we are very conflicted as to how we are supposed to continue. Do we have to start over? I don't want this because it has taken almost 2 weeks and no one has gone bankrupt yet. Can we let Judy (another resident) play for Julie or do we have to allow a family member of Julie to take her place? Do you think she put it in her will who should take her place in Monopoly? Can you do this?
Please let me know what the official rules are concerning player deaths.
