What are the most cost effective properties on the Monopoly board?
The orange properties. I have found this to be true when I play. “On the Monopoly board these three properties (orange) get a lot of traffic, reflecting their location in the heart of the city. They are not too costly and the combination gives them the top payoff ranking of all the property groups (23.5 cents on the dollar). Some say that New York Avenue, the most expensive of the three, is the single most valuable property in the game.” From: Monopoly The Story Behind the World’s Best-Selling Game by Rod Kennedy, Jr.
