Brain Game: Just Visiting
Monopoly was always one of my favorite board games, and I won more than my share of games, but IÂ was alwaysÂ a stickler for the rules. Most of the peopleÂ I've met who did not like playing the game cited "It takes too long!" as the primary reason. But if you play MonopolyÂ strictly by the original rules included in the set, you can usually knock out a game in a reasonable amount of time. But that means no adding money under the "Free Parking" space, selling all improvements evenly across a property group before mortgaging, and auctioning any unowned property that a player lands upon but chooses not to purchase outright. Yep, I said "stickler."
The mathematics of MonopolyÂ have long interestedÂ me as well, and that notion brings us to today's Brain Game. Like yesterday's puzzle, the answer to this one isn't as obvious as it might first appear.Â Please read carefully before answering!
As a collection, which color group
of Monopoly properties costs the most
for a player to purchase and fully develop?
Here is the ANSWER.
