Monopoly is a fun game to play with your friends and family, but wouldn’t it be more fun to use math to crush your opponents? Business Insider shows you how to use probability to win at this board game.
Because Monopoly is based on chance, you can actually calculate what spaces on the board are most frequently visited. Probability shows that rolling a 6, 7, or 8 is more likely than other numbers. Using this, you can calculate what spaces are visited the most and invest in those spaces. Jail is the most visited space on the board so the corner after jail is frequently visited. Those are the best spaces to buy. Always build 3 houses on your purchased spaces, so that you can have the best chance to regain what you spent on them. You can also use roll probability to buy real estate that players behind you are likely to land on.
