  • In 1934, in the midst of the Great Depression, an unemployed heating engineer from Pennsylvania created the game of
    Monopoly. Realizing that his get-rich theme might appeal to other Americans, he had the game printed and distributed in
    a Philadelphia department store. When he couldn't keep up with the overwhelming requests for more sets, he arranged for
    Parker Brothers to take over the game. And the rest, as they say, is history. But Monopoly is far from a quaint
    historical relic. To this day, it remains a riveting game of luck, chance, and savvy wheeling and dealing--all of which
    can make some lucky dog rich, rich, rich! Based on the purchase of Atlantic City real estate (a city currently renowned
    for its get-rich gambling opportunities), Monopoly is now printed in 26 languages with more than 200 million sets sold
    worldwide. Players still scoot the same beloved board pieces: the old shoe, the terrier, and the hot rod. This set also
    includes rules for a shortened version of the game and a new token, winner of Monopoly's recent "design a token"
    contest. This is capitalism at its most fun and ruthless, a must-have edition in the family game closet. --Gail Hudson
