    Best Monopoly Strategy - Orange and Green properties

    If you ever get into a game of Monopoly and your life depends on it (let us know how that happened... unless you lose, then I guess you can't) here is the winning strategy:

    I study math in college and actually did a project on this and there have been numerous studies to predict the best strategies in Monopoly. Because it is all based on random chance, the exact probabilities can be determined by use of a Markov Chain. The "Go to Jail" square acts as a kind of sink, depriving the spaces after it of opportunities to be landed on, where as the "Jail" square acts as a source and allows spaces after it to get landed on more frequently. I have attached an exact probability distribution for your enjoyment. As you can see the Orange spaces have some of the highest probabilities.

    The strategy does not just end there, though. If you take into account the money you put in, the money you get, and the probability of landing on that square, you can determine the Expected Return of that monopoly. The Orange monopolies still do very well in Expected Return and a player can expect to break even in the shortest amount of turns with these properties, so Orange is a very safe and good strategy. However, the Green properties actually yield the greatest Expected Return, but this is a much riskier move as the game must go on for a long time in order to see those investments pay off. So the choice is yours. Try to end the game quickly using the Orange monopolies, or humiliate your opponents by having them mortgage their kids to pay off rent at Green. And no, women are not impressed/amused/interested when I tell them this.

    I just buy everything I land on. Works for me hehe
    I also reckon that certain strategies are relative to how many people are playing at once. Its a fun game and can cause a lot of family and friend fights hehe.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    Now I understand why you keep a hockey goalie mask in the monopoly box.
