Ranch is a Primary Industry card in Machi Koro, available in the base game.

Gameplay Edit

When the card's activation number of two is rolled by any player, the player with the card gets one coin from the bank on anyone's turn.

Strategy Edit

The per-turn expected value of the card depends on whether the player uses the Train Station establishment to roll two dice, and how many Cheese Factories they own:

$ value = \begin{cases} 1 \times 1/6, & \mbox{if player rolls one die} \\ 1 \times 1/36 + 3 \times 6/36 \times cf, & \mbox{if player rolls two dice} \\ \end{cases} $

Or:

$ value = \begin{cases} 0.1666, & \mbox{if player rolls 1 die} \\ 0.02777, & \mbox{if player rolls 2 dice and has 0 Cheese Factories} \\ 0.52777, & \mbox{if player rolls 2 dice and has 1 Cheese Factory} \\ 1.02777, & \mbox{if player rolls 2 dice and has 2 Cheese Factories} \\ 1.52777, & \mbox{if player rolls 2 dice and has 3 Cheese Factories} \\ 2.02777, & \mbox{if player rolls 2 dice and has 4 Cheese Factories} \\ 2.52777, & \mbox{if player rolls 2 dice and has 5 Cheese Factories} \\ 3.02777, & \mbox{if player rolls 2 dice and has 6 Cheese Factories} \\\end{cases} $

The card's value is multiplied again by how many Ranches the player owns.
