Flashback 1930s

Monopoly- The board game that we all play today was created in 1934 and sold by the Parker Brothers. Over the years colors and taxes have changed, but the object of the game has remained the same. All property deeds, hotels, and houses are held by the bank until the players purchase them. Players take turns rolling a dice to advance their piece around the board. It is the job of the player to make smart decisions with their property and money. The player with the most money and property when the game finally ends is the winner. Monopoly became a popular pastime during the Great Depression because the game was less expensive than other activities, and it related to the economy.
