and three Community Chest squares at 2, 17, 33 (squares on the graph),
where you draw a card, which can send you to another square. 31 1.6. SPECIAL EXAMPLES

The graph gives the long run frequencies of being in di↵erent squares on the
Monopoly board at the end of your turn, as computed by simulation. We have
removed the 9.46% chance of being In Jail to make the probabilities easier to
see. The value reported for square 10 is the 2.14% probability of Just Visiting
Jail, i.e., being brought there by the roll of the dice. Square 30, Go to Jail, has
probability 0 for the obvious reasons. The other three lowest values occur for
Chance squares. Due to the transition from 30 to 10, frequencies for squares near
20 are increased relative to the average of 2.5% while those after 30 or before
10 are decreased. Squares 0 (Go) and 5 (Reading Railroad) are exceptions to
this trend since there are Chance cards that instruct you to go there. 1.6.2 Detailed...
