The classic game of Monopoly has been dated back to 1906 when a woman named Elizabeth Magie self-published it hoping to use it as an educational tool to explain the single tax theory. Since then it has been transformed into over a thousand different versions and is still a family favourite. This game involves a mix of luck, strategy, and negotiation. Here are a few quick general tips to get you started in the right direction of winning the game rather than ending up in jail.
- Buy Railroads. As soon as you land on one, purchase it as they are a great way to get a bit of income at the start. Ignore the electric company and water works as they don’t really pay off.
- If you can afford it, purchase the territories on the red, orange and bright blue locations. They are the best locations and players tend to make the highest profits off of these.
- As soon as you can start building, thrown on the houses but when you max out at three, don’t be tempted to trade them in for a hotel. Houses are easy and cheap to build while also bringing in the most profit.
