🎩 Not Monopoly

What happens to real estate when ownership is fluid?

  • Experiment on Permanent Auction Mechanics
  • Set base rules and allow for actors to try to reach balance


  • No explicit goal. Implicit: make more $MONEY
  • 32x32 grid
  • TURN based; at every TURN:
    • TAXES are paid
    • a random COLUMN and ROW are picked
    • all owners of tiles in picked ROW and COLUMN get $2 (intersection tile gets $4)
    • BUYOUTs are paid
    • ownership is transferred to BUYERS, money is transferred back
    • BUYERS define new tax on recently bought tiles, new PRICE is set (PRICE = TAX * 10)
  • Game never ends
