I always used to get the Light Blues (Vermont, Connecticut, and Oriental) and I liked them because they were so cheap to build. They were also good because if a player landed on them, I could get a good amount of money, about $800! Then I realized, “You can’t really bankrupt a player with that low of a rent.” So, for a while, I tried to get the reds because they are landed on so frequently. I succeeded for a few games, and won them. Then my opponents kept getting them, every single game! The last game I played, I traded over $700 for Park Place when I had Boardwalk. I quickly built houses, and I was winning-until the person I was playing against got the Light Blues AND the Greens. I bankrupted two players and it was just me and him. Eventually, he got lucky and I landed on his properties many times. I was bankrupt, and he won.
On the other hand, my LEAST favorite property group is the Greens. They cost almost $4,000 to develop completely, and no one ever seems to land on them. However, after the game where the Green-owner won, I might reconsider putting them up for auction!
