# Is the Go! action card ever worth playing?

In Monopoly Deal, there is a Go! Card which uses one of your three plays for the turn in order to draw two additional cards. It seems the key to winning in this game revolve around emptying your hand to draw 5. Let's start from that scenario:

``````turn x  : draw 5, play 3, leaves 2 in hand
turn x+1: draw 2, play 3, leaves 1 in hand
turn x+2: draw 2, play 3, leaves 0 in hand
``````

So with this we have 3 turns, 9 cards, or an average of 3 cards per turn.

Now let's say we play a go:

``````turn x  : draw 5, play 2 and a go, leaves 5 in hand
turn x+1: draw 2, play 3, leaves 4 in hand
turn x+2: draw 2, play 3, leaves 3 in hand
turn x+3: draw 2, play 3, leaves 2 in hand
turn x+4: draw 2, play 3, leaves 1 in hand
turn x+5: draw 2, play 3, leaves 0 in hand
``````

So now, in six turns, we've instead managed to draw 17 cards over 6 turns, or 2.8 cards per turn. So we see FEWER cards per turn if we play a go, plus one less action.

Should I be using my goes for money instead to maximize the number of cards I see?
