Description: The long-term probabilities in the Parker Brothers game Monopoly: an exploration into which Monopoly game board properties are occupied more frequently than others. Developed from a high school science project, this site is organized as a lab write-up. It includes results, with the likelihood of landing on any given Monopoly property; and discussion of whether these different probabilities amount to an overall playing advantage or disadvantage. Explanation and application of Markov chains and transition matrices, and several colorful MS-generated graphs of dice roll outcomes on a Monopoly game board.
