In this 20-minute video, two mathematicians play Monopoly and work out how to win at it…using math.
The mathematicians are Dr. Hannah Fry and Matt Parker. They each simulated the game using computer programs they wrote. The programs play pseudo-Monopoly games, keeping track of how the dice rolls come out (including how common doubles are), which properties are commonly landed on, and how the Chance and Community Chest decks are used.
With all this data, the two work out how to win money and infuriate your relatives.
