Hasbro have fitted out 18 London cabs with GPS tracking devices, and hooked them up to a real time, real life game of monopoly. You get to choose which cab driver you want to 'play' with, and then pick which properties around london you want to put your houses and hotels, hit go, sit back and wait for the other cab drivers to land on your square and make you rent. You get 24 hours of your cab running around london, and you have to see how much money you can make in a day "

Da is cool!

I choose not to play however, since I ended 2nd in the National Championship and don't want to ruin my stats.

This is pretty cool.
What properties did you pick? I've only made $44M after an hour. The leader has close to $18 Billion

I'm playing. Now all I need to do is find a cab which is tracked and the rigging will begin.

Im goin to try again this time i used hotels and houses and used up as much money as possible.

Yeah

My strategy was to buy the orange and green properties because people always seem to land there. Then I threw a hotel on the two end oranges and 2 houses on the first two greens and 3 on the third.

In retrospect I should've just gone all out and bought Boardwalk/ParkPlace and used hotels on them.

Damn you Nottom! I'm going to stop linking to that thread of yours when people ask about working out pot odds when there are two cards to come.

What was your strategy?

Hotels on "boardwalk" and "parkplace" plus houses on the reds (obviously 4 on the expensive one and 3 on one of the others) ... nothing special.

Blues and oranges the first day, blues and reds yesterday.

I wonder how much money "rubber duck" has spent on Chance cards.
