    You should make an AI that all of a sudden stands up, cusses out the other AI, and flips the board over. Keep it random.

    Ai: "What is my purpose"

  • Check


    I am somewhat of a monopoly master within my household, and everybody refuses to trade with me in fear of me ruining their lives. Browns are even better in a real life situation.

    "You know what's better than altruism? Winning." It seems like the bots have been given the gift of humanity.

    I have only one gripe with the AI: Not only should it be winning when playing against the other AIs, it should also need to win against some control-AIs making sure that their strategy also works against other AIs that don't feat the way the NEAT AI has evolved. The way you did it the AI could still be pretty bad against a lot of players because the sample range of playing styles wasn't big enough

    My favorite strategy is to buy as many houses as possible, but not turn any into hotels. There are only 32 houses available in a traditional Monopoly set, and opponents won’t be able to build properties if you hold most/all of them. For this strategy, owning the browns and light blues is important because their houses are cheaper and thus you can hog more.

    One small gripe.

    It’s scary to think of the time manipulation that AI can have. Learning at that rate in a simulated world to impact this reality. I wonder how specific you can get with the tasks you give the AI.

    Your explanation of neural networks is by far the best explanation I've ever heard. Thank you. Subbed.

    I've always been a big fan of the browns and I've tended to do better when I have both of them.

    This was my monopoly strategy for over 3 years and now everyone knows it. I've lost m crown as a monopoly champion. These 5 months have destroyed my monopoly supremacy (within the family).

    One strategy that I've seen used by Dan from Game Grumps is as follows: Once you have a complete set, mortgage all properties that are in a set, shared by another player, and use that money to buy houses and hotels.

    "You know what better than altruism? Winning." Pretty good summary of monopoly.

    "we created a monolopy god and after it spent the equivalent of 1600 years discerning the ideal strategy for the game what it told us is what we already knew" 😹😹😹

    You forgot that placement on the board when trading can make a difference (increase your chances someone will land on your property earlier). Also your cash can make a difference when trading (do you have enough cash to buy buildings or does your opponents and have money leftover in case of bad luck). That is assuming both players get a monopoly from the trade. I personally avoid trading were I don’t get a monopoly if I give one. I also would never trade to give a monopoly if I had one and my opponents don’t. Then there is trading for cash. How much should you trade and when? That is determined by the monopoly set you have a monopoly on and your opponents set. Plus the amount of cash each person has. Obviously if you end up with a cheap set you can afford to give up more cash depending on how much you have and your opponents have. Over all it’s a great AI but in my opinion it lacks the human ability to think outside the box and adapt. Or should I say that the interpretation we humans get from it does not reflect the way too many variables to copperhead. Just my opinion as a monopoly lover who has a great win lose record. Lastly there is not much you can do if your opponents make a bad trade with someone else or you have lost because of luck so decide to help one or another player by making bad trades. I did enjoy the video and it was very insightful.

    One of my favorite Monopoly memories is when my younger sister bought the two lowest costing properties, built hotels on them for cheap, and then absolutely wiped the floor with the rest of us.
