  • Essential Features

    Monte Carnival is a simple Add-In for Microsoft Excel that comes with a few essential features that make it stand out among the crowd.

    Run a Monte Carnival Simulation

    With Monte Carnival you can run a simulation and choose whether to print a list of the values that appeared in the simulation cell from each iteration or to calculate all open Excel workbooks during a simulation. Go to our demo page to see it in action!

    Insert 12 Types of Random Distributions

    Monte Carnival comes with 12 different types of random distributions including Normal, Lognormal, Triangular, Discrete, Uniform, Binomial, Yes/No, Beta, Gamma, T, F, and Chi-Squared. Go to our demo page to see it in action!

    Use the Debug Model Tool

    The Debug Model tool allows you to efficiently search a model for errors using conditional statements. Once the criteria is met, the simulation will stop, allowing you to make necessary corrections. Go to our demo page to see it in action!


    From the Carnival

    Monte Carnival Simulation

    To run a Monte Carnival simulation, simply select a simulation cell, enter the number of trials, and click start. With a built in progress bar and checkboxes, Monte Carnival gives you the option to update all open workbooks or generate a list of the values from the simulation cell from each trial.

    • Click
    • Run


    With Monte Carnival you are able to choose from 12 random distributions to insert. Select the distribution type from the drop-down box, enter your values, and then select a cell or range of cells to insert the distribution formula into.

    • Insert

    Model Debugging Tool

    The Model Debug tool allows for efficiently checking a model for errors. Select the test cell, select a condition from the drop-down box, and enter a value. Monte Carnival will update the spreadsheet(s) or workbook(s) until the condition is met, giving you the ability to evaluate the calculations that cause the error value.

    • Click
    • Debug

    Output Report and Ribbon Tab

    The custom ribbon tab includes 4 buttons for navigating the Monte Carnival application. The output includes statistical information, a histogram describing the simulation results, and if selected, a list of simulation values from each iteration.

    What Reviews are Saying

    Everything being a carnival, there is no carnival left.

    Victor Hugo

    I was sure that somewhere a grandiose carnival was going on in the sky, and I was missing it.

    Eve Babitz

    A forecasting game is a kind of simulation, a kind of scenario, a kind of teleconference, a kind of artifact from the future - and more - that enlists the participants as 'first person forecasters'.

    Howard Rheingold

    Learning by doing, peer-to-peer teaching, and computer simulation are all part of the same equation.

    Nicholas Negroponte
