I don’t remember the last time I played Monopoly but I have fond memories of the game. My dad built it up as one of the greatest board games ever when he picked up a used copy at a garage sale. I tend to agree (at least when I was kid — of course board games have come along way since I was a kid).
My friends always thought our set was weird because it had a milk cartoon, egg holder, and goblet instead of the usual metal shoe, wheel barrow, or scottie dog, etc. but I’ve come to love the classic wooden pieces over the more modern metal ones.
The video above discusses the use of artificial intelligence to figure out the best Monopoly strategy. It took the equivalent of 1600 years of monopoly playing for the AI to discover that… I won’t spoil it for you except to say that if you’ve ever looked into strategies, the best one is one you probably already know.
