MCopoly: a Monopoly Simulator

This app uses Monte Carlo simulation to determine the probability of landing on any given space in Monopoly. The slider allows you to choose which turn (how many dice rolls) you are interested in. Sometimes the initial image doesn’t load, so move the slider around a bit until the pictures appear. This particular simulation assumes the players never stay in jail and always leave on the next turn, either by paying or by using a get out of jail free card.

MCopoly was written in R and uses the Shiny package. The code to produce this app is available on my Github.
