The Best Board Games-Monopoly
Monopoly is as popular today as it ever has been.Despite the rise of computer and video games (you can play many versions of Monopoly on games consoles as well!),the traditional board game of Monopoly is the most popular and most played board game today.
Monopoly is an ever popular Christmas gift, and the past generations that have enjoyed playing Monopoly are buying the game for the future generations to ensure the Monopoly legend lives on.
Who Invented Monopoly?
The aim of the game in monopoly is to make as much money as you can, and gain as many assets as you can.It seems ironic then that in1934,when at the height of the Great Depression, Charles Darrow of Germantown, Pennsylvania, brought his version of the Monopoly game to the executives at Parker Brothers.He had been selling the game for a year ,the Parker Brothers bought the rights in 1935, the same year they allowed Waddingtons to produce the game in the United Kingdom and Monopoly became the game most of us know today.
However many believe the game to be very similar to the game The Landlords Game invented in1904, by Lizzie J. Magie, a Quaker woman from Virginia.Her game was based on the theory that the land and real estate values would increase in value, and that only the landlords would make a profit rather than the majority of the people; that is the people who had to pay the rent.
