The chance of rolling a certain number with 2 dice
2 1/36 (2.778%)
3 2/36 (5.556%)
4 3/36 (8.333%)
5 4/36 (11.111%)
6 5/36 (13.889%)
7 6/36 (16.667%)
8 5/36 (13.889%)
9 4/36 (11.111%)
10 3/36 (8.333%)
11 2/36 (5.556%)
12 1/36 (2.778%)
With this being said there is a 44% chance of rolling a 6, 7, or 8 *these are the most common outcomes
You want to keep this in mind when playing, when you are on a world tour (the square that lets you move anywhere) you want to put yourself in a position to win, so put yourself on a square with a good outcome 7 squares later, for example, London (the purple one next to a world championship) is 7 squares behind world tour, 6 squares behind new york and 8 squares behind the railroad “Nice” if these are unclaimed it could be a great place to chose
Be Smart With Your Money
We’ve all been there, we landed on a square we really needed but we couldn’t afford it, this section will help prevent that
1. Do not keep useless railroads
If you’re not going for a railroad win you should only have 1 unless they have festivals that increase the rent the reason you should have 1 is to prevent the opponent from getting railroad monopoly, 400k for a 50k tax on 2 squares just isn’t worth it. With that being said 600k for 100k on 3 squares is worth it.
2. When to upgrade your property
If you’re buying something so your opponent cannot buy it upgrade it to 1 house this would mean your opponent is either forced to pay twice what you paid after they paid the original rent or block them from buying it outright, the reason we buy 1 house is that there is a chance card that
Degrades 1 of your enemies buildings and if you only have a land claim when this card is used on
Then your property would go back to being unclaimed.
If there is a festival on the square you should buy the highest version you’re able to at all times, the ROI (return on investment) of these squares are far higher than they normally would be
Play to win.
Keep win conditions in mind at all times!
Types of wins
- Line monopoly, if you have every property on any side of the board you win
- Triple monopoly, if you have 3 monopolies anywhere on the board, you win
- Resort monopoly. If you have all 4 resorts on the board, you win
- Bankruptcy. All your opponents have no money, and you win
- Bots, if a bot wins a game it goes to the person with the second most amount of money as bots
Cannot take wins.
With this being said, the more properties you have the more options you have, you have to keep your opponent in mind too when thinking about win conditions so you can make sure they do not reach them.
Hypothetical situations and the right way to approach them.
Let’s assume you are first and you move 6,7 or 9 squares
A good player would fully upgrade the property because it’s likely your opponent would land there
Let’s assume you’re second to go and your opponent rolls a 10. It’s your turn now and you roll a 3.
A good would player would buy 1 house or just land ownership as it’ll take another few turns for your opponent to even have the chance of landing on it. This saves money for the more expensive property you have to keep your opponents position in mind when deciding a purchase this is also a good idea because on the second lap around the board it will still only take 1 more time to land on it to upgrade it to level 3, as the first time around the board you can only upgrade to level 2 anyway
Let’s assume its the start of the game and you roll an 8 sending you straight to jail
A good player payout of jail, usually being in jail is a good thing as you can’t step on your opponent’s properties while they can step on yours. This does not apply when you don’t have any properties. You also need to pass go as soon as you can so you can upgrade to level 3 buildings
Usually buying your opponent’s properties isn’t a good idea as you’re giving them double what they paid for it, although this could be a good idea if it either, makes you a monopoly, or if it has the festival on it. Always if you can afford it. Rebuy festival squares off other people, they are worth the price you’ll pay
Keep in mind the possible squares you can land on when rolling out of jail, you can only land 2,4,6,8,10, or 12 as you must roll doubles, so keep that in mind when making a strategy
It’s true this game is heavily dictated by random numbers but you can take calculated risks to give you the advantage,
Don’t fall asleep while looking for a match, when you’re doing 100-500k games you usually have to wait 10-30 minutes per game. I fell asleep at my desk while waiting and woke up having 500k fewer chips.
When there is a bot in your game do not play against the bot, play with the bot since if it wins it’ll go to the next best person
