comment What are the order of actions in Monopoly?
Frankly, it's a very old game, and timing is not laid out particularly well. it's clear that you can't buy houses between the die roll and assessing rent owed, but the rest is pretty up for grabs. Controlling the housing supply is a HUGE part of the strategy of the game, but the rules who can buy what when are not at all clear.

comment In Monopoly, Can I mortgage properties as I am bankrupted?
Right, I think the idea is to avoid the scenario where player A lands on B's property, but doesn't want B to win, so they sell all their stuff to C for $10, so that B only gets $10. But selling their stuff to C for enough money to cover the rent they just landed on is okay. Selling everything to C before the dice are rolled for $10 would also be okay, though very unsportsmanlike.

comment Trash an Estate or Curse your opponents? Full Version
I think the greater message to have taken away from your previous question is that Cursers are not very useful in games with good trashers...you shouldn't have had to choose which to play, because buying the Witch was not that great a move given that board, despite your 5/2 split. Jack is too good a trasher. It gets to look at not only the other 4 cards in the hand for trashing, but the next card in the draw deck, and the one after that, if you choose.
