    Default Winning strategy for 14 popular games

    From Risk to tic-tac-toe, popular games involve tons of strategic decisions, probability and math. So one happy consequence of being a data nerd is that you may have an advantage at something even non-data nerds understand: winning.

    So how do you win (almost) every game in existence, do you ask? Here are 20 data visualizations that offer lots of insight into the most popular games in America, including chess, Connect Four, Monopoly, Pac-Man, "Wheel of Fortune" and much more, including: Battleship | Chess 1 | Chess 2 | Chess 3 | A coin toss | Connect Four | Diplomacy | "Jeopardy!" | Monopoly 1 | Monopoly 2 | Monopoly 3 | Monopoly 4 | Pac-Man | "The Price is Right" | Rock-paper-scissors | Scrabble | Texas hold ’em | Tic-tac-toe

    Great reminders for the game lover in all of us, and I learned a fair amount of new stuff that I only sort of intuited at best about some of the games.

    This type of non-casino advantage play can be done for some serious money assuming you got the right suckers around. Phil Gordon immediately comes to mind for one of the most basic games here, Rock Paper Scissors.
