reds and yellows.
Or stations, if you have them all and relatively early in the game.
If you have them in conjunction with the pinks, you're onto a winner.
but I think all four train stations are underestimated.
or, the greens and yellows are a lethal combo too.
Light Blue, Purples and Oranges. CRIPPLE CORNER
The purples are Mayfair and Park Line.
otherwise: i wholeheartedly agree with this strategy.
Get these and the purples, and watch as people *just* pay off their Mayfair hotel bill, only to subsequently land on Old Kent Road and go bankrupt.
The perfect balance of being worth not too much to buy/improve and a nice crippling rent for the other players to pay.
Yellows are good but a bit pricey. Greens are the WORST
I need to play monopoly again soon. What a game.
but they've won me the game twice recently.
if you can get over 2 grand, spent 1800 on three houses and you'll win. ALWAYS landed on.
me and about four friends are hooked. since the beginning of september we've got through about 30 games.
3 last night
its just factually correct. statistically, the oranges generate the most revenue because they are the most visited property squares (because of the myriad ways people can end up on the jail square).
A FUCKING TENNER? CALLING ME UGLY?
You know you're up against a serious player when he nabs an orange at the first opportunity.
THE BATTLE RAGES.
Cactus Jack can also make an appereance...
looks like a monkey?
I knew it.
It's an easy mistake to make. I once thought the Game Of Life had shat on the kitchen floor, turns out it hadn't. I had.
when playing Kaplunk.
They're the only ones I'm interested in.
of all taxes go in the middle and you win them when landing on free parking? Right? And £400 when landing on go?
House rules RULE. Um, yeah.
Nice to know we're not the only ones.
I'd say the Green set - though apparently the reds are best to have as they get landed on the most.
kleeps liquiditiy in the game.
but not the £400 for landing on GO. That's stupid.
It's just throwing money at the players. Get them to earn it!
it'd be really boring if you land on go and nothing happens.
we rolled the dice to see who got the lowest score and they had to sit out but got double the cash if some landed on their space. That was cool.
The Oranges are brilliant, as are the Green after the Jail. Seriously.
So everyone who avoids the Jail has a very good chance of landing on the greens. They even want to to avoid jail.
A nice sense of authority without the arrogance of Mayfair/Parklane. Statistically, I think the oranges probably work the best for you.
water works + electric company
but Yellows should be higher.
ARE YOU INSANE?????
and even then it's hardly much more than the oranges.
Does anyone else hate all these bloody new versions of Monopoly, especially the one with 'new' London landmarks. It's Old Kent Road, Mayfair etc damn it!
and game arcade or whatever it's called and play me at it. Computer players are annoying and just buy everything.
my newly imported american friend purchased a copy of monopoly and was shocked to find no broadway. LOLz get it right ya dick
oranges to have a chance of winning.
Oranges + Light Blues ftw.
the browns because they're really cheap to get hotels on.
if i remember correctly you can stick 'em for £500 after you've got your hotels. not to be sniffed at, that. i also like greens though.
and Mayfair and Park lane, mainly because my birthday is in May.
They're the best, by the law of mathematics.
Also, only ever buy 3 houses on each property, never 4 or hotels. It makes the most sense financially, plus you end up using loads of houses and once they're gone no other players can use them.
Man I want to play Monopoly.
you've made me want to play it so much.
Me and my mates used to play like once a day at least after school when I was about 16. Sounds boring as fuck but it ruled. Epic games tht wnet on for hours.
Then we wanked over TV programmes with girls wearing skirts in them.
And Articulate. That's an incredible game.
as opposed to all the kids from school who were actually doing drugs.
Someone always takes too much cocaine and then convinced of their innate superiority tries to invade all of Asia.
I'm going to ignore all your posts and state that it is a matter of fact that the Orange and Red squares are the best to take. For one reason or another, everyone will end up going to jail a few times a game. Unless they're VERY lucky, they will end up on an orange or red property within two turns.
And unlike the yellow and green properties, you may start piling on the houses relatively early on in the game.
that red was the colour most commonly landed upon in an average monopoly game. I tend to go for that whole side though and rename it "street of doom". Or Harlesden.
