About Monopoly: In 1935, Parker Brothers began selling the MONOPOLY property trading game, which would quickly become a cultural phenomenon. Now more than eighty years later, over 1 billion people in 114 countries have played the game designed by Charles Darrow and based on the streets of Atlantic City, New Jersey. The images, colors and properties of the MONOPOLY game are now iconic pieces of pop culture. In 1933, Charles Darrow made a prototype of the new game using materials from around his home. He used a piece of oilcloth that had been a table covering for the game’s board, cut the houses and hotels out of scraps of wooden molding and typed the deeds and cards. The early mover tokens were actually charms from his niece’s charm bracelet.
Today, the MONOPOLY brand is known as the world’s favorite family game brand and the game has been played by more than one billion people in 114 countries around the world. Whether fans play face-to-face, on mobile, online or participate in casino or lottery gaming, there is a MONOPOLY experience to fit every lifestyle.
