Here’s the scenario:
You are playing against two opponents and have all properties split up among the three of you, but none of you have a complete color group / monopoly and must therefore trade. You each have about 1100 (give or take a few bucks) in cash and are all coincidentally sitting on “GO”.
After a lot of arguing, negotiating, and compromising, a most interesting choice has been reached. Each player will end up with one of the following color groups: magenta, red, or yellow. It just so happens that all other properties are mortgaged, but these are not.
Assuming that you are able to convince your opponents to settle for any of the three aforementioned monopolies, which should you choose and why? What factors are the most sensitive to this decision?
I look forward to your answers, and good luck!
** Now imagine the same scenario, except that the magenta properties are substituted with the light blues. How does this impact your decision and why?
