Question 1 of 10
1. What property has the greatest ratio between it's rental value with a hotel to it's cost to build that hotel? For example, the ratio for Mediterranean Ave. would be equal to 1 (rental value with hotel = \$250, 4 houses & 1 hotel * \$50 = \$250, \$250/\$250 = 1). Note, do not add the cost of houses on other properties in the same color set in the individual property's calculation. Hint

Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. What property has the greatest ratio between it's rental value with a hotel to it's cost to build that hotel? For example, the ratio for Mediterranean Ave. would be equal to 1 (rental value with hotel = \$250, 4 houses & 1 hotel * \$50 = \$250, \$250/\$250 = 1). Note, do not add the cost of houses on other properties in the same color set in the individual property's calculation.

The ratio for Connecticut Ave. is 2.4 (\$600/\$250 = 2.4). Boardwalk's ratio is 2, Baltic's ratio is 1.8, and Illinois' ratio is 1.47. The light blue set has the highest ratio of rental value to cost of building and is therefore desirable early in the game to try and obtain a quick victory.
2. When auctioning properties, what is the correct format to conduct the auction?

Answer: Start bidding at 10% of the property's price and continue upward in 10% increments until sold.

It is very rare that a player should ever auction a property. It is always advantageous to have a least one property of every colored set so that if another player loses, you can block a monopoly from forming for the player that beat him/her.
3. What is the most frequent combined dice roll in a game of Monopoly? An easy way to remember this is to add the two opposite sides of a die together.

Of course this is only true in the long-run. There are 36 possible rolls with six possibilities (1,6), (6,1), (2,5), (5,2), (3,4), (4,3) for a 7.
4. If a player has \$1,400 in cash and owns St. Charles Place, North Carolina Ave., Reading Railroad, Atlantic Ave., and Boardwalk, should the player elect to pay \$200 if he/she lands on the "Income Tax - Pay 10% or \$200" spot?

The 10% tax is on ALL of your assets. It is a common misconception that the 10% is only on your cash. The 10% is on your cash and the mortgage value (half of the property's price) of your properties and buildings. In this example, the player would have \$2,050 of total assets (1,400+70+150+100+130+200). A 10% tax would cost \$205. Therefore the player should pay \$200.
5. What is the greatest number of consecutive squares with a property on the game board?

The seven property stretch shortly after Free Parking consists of Indiana Ave., Illinois Ave., B&O Railroad, Atlantic Ave., Ventnor Ave., Water Works, and Marvin Gardens.
6. If a player owns a mortgaged Virginia Ave., a mortgaged States Ave. and an unmortgaged St. Charles Place., what is the rent to be received if another player lands on St. Charles Place.

Rental values are doubled on all unmortgaged properties in a monopoly regardless of the status of the other properties in a set. Houses are not allowed to be built if there is a mortgaged property in the set. In this example, the normal rental value of \$10 on St. Charles Place is doubled to \$20.
7. Is it possible to become bankrupt upon landing on a Community Chest spot card reading "You are assessed for street repairs - \$40 per house, \$115 per hotel".

I wonder if this has ever happened to someone. I will outline an example of how this could happen. A player has \$0 in cash and has four houses on both Mediterranean Ave. and Baltic Ave. The player would owe the bank \$320 (4*\$40 + 4*\$40). The mortgage value of the houses would be \$200 (8*\$25) and the mortgage value of Mediterranean and Baltic would be \$60 (\$30 + \$30) for a total of \$260.

The player would be \$60 short of paying his/her debt and would therefore be bankrupt.
8. Assuming that a player has a monopoly (all of the properties for that color set) for the property in question, what property has the greatest ratio between its rental value with one house to its unimproved rental value. For example, Mediterranean Ave.'s ratio would be 2.5 (\$10 / (\$2*2)).

All properties other than Boardwalk and Pennsylvania Ave. have a ratio of 2.5. Boardwalk's ratio is 2 (\$200 / (\$50*2)) and Pennsylvania's ratio is 2.68 (\$150 / (\$28*2)).
9. Not including utilities and railroads, in what increment do rental values increase as one travels around the board starting from Go. Note, the rental values of Park Place and Boardwalk do not follow this pattern.

Mediterranean Ave.'s rental value is \$2, Baltic Ave.'s is \$4, Oriental and Vermont Ave.'s is \$6, Connecticut Ave.'s is \$8 and so on. This pattern continues through Pennsylvania Ave. Park Place's incremental increase is \$7 and Boardwalk's is \$15.
10. Which of the following properties is a player unable to be advanced to if he/she lands on a Chance spot?

There are Chance cards advancing players to St. Charles Place, Illinois Ave., and the nearest railroad among others. If a Chance card reads advance to the nearest railroad, a player cannot advance to Short Line, but he/she could possibly advance to any of the other railroads.
