Nicolò Falcone of Venice, Italy, won the 2015 Monopoly World Championship. He is the reigning champion because they haven’t held a world title match since then, thanks to COVID-19. He entered a local competition with friends and came in third while his friend won first place, but after that, as he climbed the rankings of the tournaments, he won over and over. By the time he got to the world championship tournament in China, he was treated like a celebrity. What do you do after you win the world championship? You go to work for Comedy Central, apparently. Standup comedy was Falcone’s other hobby; he just needed a way to get their attention.
In an article at the Guardian, Falcone gives readers some tips on how to win a game of Monopoly, like avoiding jail in the early part of the game, but staying in jail later on. He has more tips for players, but one might think he’s not telling us everything he knows about Monopoly, because he plans to become the world’s first two-time Monopoly champ. -via Boing Boing
