New from the Vuurzoon Family: "The Monopoly Assistant!" A device that rolls your dice, and calculates your money. So throw away you paper money and your old dice! Letís play the game.
About this creation

Watch my video






All you need to build the Monopoly assistant is the Lego Mindstorms NXT 2.0 set (8547).


On the back of the Monopoly Assistant you find a support. So you can set it on the table. The support is also handy to hold the Assistant in your hand.


The display shows you how to control the Monopoly Assistant. You use the NXT buttons (the right, the left and the orange button) to navigate through the menus on the screen.


To roll the two dice (die A and die B) you press the touch sensor. Then the display shows you what you rolled.


When you pay or get money, you have to select the right player. To do this you put the right bal into the holder. Each player has her own color.


After you select the player, you have to select the right amount. To do this you turn the wheel on the left.


After selecting the right amount, the Monopoly Assistant calculates your new balance/saldo. You see your new balance on the screen. You can also find the balances of all the players in one of the menus.



How to get your own Monopoly Assistant?


I put the design in LDD (Lego Digital Designer). You can download the LDD building instructions with the link below.

You can download the required software (a NXT-G program) via the following link:
Software for Monopoly Assistant







Enjoy the Game!!!

Hi Jeff, Congratz with your own EV3 set! For the Monopoly Assistant buildings instructions you need the Lego Digital Designer software. You can download it for free on: http://ldd.lego.com/en-us/download/ The Monopoly Assistant software is only available for NXT-G software. Unfortunately your can't use that for your EV3. Enjoy building robots! Kind regards,
