Today, for the first time, I almost won at Monopoly! Lost at the end, but put up a good fight.

I usually lose first. This time, however, I managed to get a monopoly on the red properties and later the railroads, which kept me alive.

Data taken from Truman Collins' ridiculously detailed work.

I also landed almost exclusively on my own properties when I traveled. I once rolled three 10s in three turns, jumping from railroad to railroad and avoiding all hotels. Lucky!


  1. today was a lucky day.. you shld have tradd in stocks instead..

  2. Haha, indeed. I'll make sure to do that next time I actually win ;)

  3. You and your railroads... haha
