Get Out of Jail for Free: A Brief Monopoly Retrospective

The newest Monopoly incarnation

The newest Monopoly incarnation

Ruining families since 1935, Monopoly is the record holder for most played commercial game in the world with the last statistic placing it the hands of 750 million players. You’ve played this game by now, and if you haven’t, I’m sort of wondering why not.

The Classic Monopoly Evening

Nothing makes for a game night quite like Monopoly. You begin with a few people laughing at losing some money, then suddenly an hour later your father is stealing money from you when you’re not looking, your sister is charging you thousands of dollars to stay at Park Place, and your dog has eaten the little dog from the game. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200.

Best board game ever.

A Brief History

vintage monopoly board game box 05 262x375 Get Out of Jail for Free: A Brief Monopoly RetrospectiveMonopoly began as a patent by Charles Darrow in 1935 but is more commonly known as being a Parker Brothers’ property, currently distributed by Hasbro. The concept of the game is very simple as you choose absolutely random items to represent your hotel-mongering self (really, dogs, thimbles, shoes, and irons have no place running hotel chains), then roll the dice to see how far you move.

Rules of Monopoly

When you land on a property that is for sale you can purchase it so that anyone else unfortunate enough to land on it must pay you the appropriate fees, though the same is true to you when you discover you’ve landed on a property with multiple hotels sitting on it.

Translation: Goodbye money.

The rules state the game is over when all but one player has gone bankrupt, though the typical end of the game comes when everyone gets tired of the six-year-old having The Electric Company, Boardwalk, and the entire Railroad monopoly.

A little trivia: the longest game of Monopoly lasted roughly 70 days. Not even Rich Uncle Pennybags cared that much about a single game of Monopoly.
