Monopoly is derived from The Landlord's Game created by Lizzie Magie in the United States in as a way to demonstrate that an economy which rewards wealth creation is better than one where monopolists work under few constraints,  and to promote the economic theories of Henry George —in particular his ideas about taxation.
The game is named after the economic concept of monopoly —the domination of a market by a single entity. The history of Monopoly can be traced back to ,  when American anti-monopolist Lizzie Magie created a game which she hoped would explain the single tax theory of Henry George.
It was intended as an educational tool to illustrate the negative aspects of concentrating land in private monopolies. She took out a patent in Her game, The Landlord's Game , was self-published, beginning in Magie created two sets of rules: an anti-monopolist set in which all were rewarded when wealth was created, and a monopolist set in which the goal was to create monopolies and crush opponents.
Several variant board games, based on her concept, were developed from through the s; they involved both the process of buying land for its development and the sale of any undeveloped property.
Cardboard houses were added and rents increased as they were added to a property. Magie patented the game again in According to an advertisement placed in The Christian Science Monitor , Charles Todd of Philadelphia recalled the day in when his childhood friend, Esther Jones, and her husband Charles Darrow came to their house for dinner.
After the meal, the Todds introduced Darrow to The Landlord's Game , which they then played several times. The game was entirely new to Darrow, and he asked the Todds for a written set of the rules.
After that night, Darrow went on to utilize this and distribute the game himself as Monopoly. Parker Brothers bought the game's copyrights from Darrow.
Parker Brothers began marketing the game on November 5, Alexander contributed the design. In , Parker Brothers began licensing the game for sale outside the United States.
They were distributed to prisoners by fake charity organizations created by the British Secret Service. In the Nazi-occupied Netherlands, the German government and its collaborators were displeased with Dutch people using Monopoly Game sets with American or British locales, and developed a version with Dutch locations.
Since that version had in itself no specific pro-Nazi elements, it continued in use after the war, and formed the base for Monopoly games used in the Netherlands up to the present.
Economics professor Ralph Anspach published a game Anti-Monopoly in , and was sued for trademark infringement by Parker Brothers in The case went to trial in Anspach won on appeals in , as the 9th Circuit Court determined that the trademark Monopoly was generic and therefore unenforceable.
This decision was overturned by the passage of Public Law in However, Anti-Monopoly was exempted from the law and Anspach later reached a settlement with Hasbro and markets his game under license from them.
The research that Anspach conducted during the course of the litigation was what helped bring the game's history before Charles Darrow into the spotlight.
In , Hasbro acquired Parker Bros. Hasbro moved to create and license many other versions of Monopoly and sought public input in varying the game.
National Championship. In , the Speed Die was added to all regular Monopoly set. M has the five-star, room hotel, then under construction, located at the M Bukit Bintang in Kuala Lumpur and would have a s Gatsby feel.
M's Sirocco Group would manage the hotel when it opens in There have since been some changes to the board. Monopoly character then known as "Rich Uncle Pennybags" were added in that same time-frame.
Traditionally, the Community Chest cards were yellow although they were sometimes printed on blue stock with no decoration or text on the back; the Chance cards were orange with no text or decoration on the back.
Hasbro commissioned a major graphic redesign to the U. Standard Edition of the game in along with some minor revisions.
Among the changes: the colors of Mediterranean and Baltic Avenues changed from purple to brown, and the colors of the GO square changed from red to black.
All the Chance and Community Chest cards received a graphic upgrade in as part of the graphic refresh of the game. Monopoly's classic line illustration was also now usually replaced by renderings of a 3D Mr.
Monopoly model. The backs of the cards have their respective symbols, with Community Chest cards in blue, and Chance cards in orange. In the U.
Charles Place no longer exists, as the Showboat Atlantic City was developed where it once ran. Marvin Gardens, the farthest yellow property, is a misspelling of its actual name, Marven Gardens.
It was passed on when their homemade Monopoly board was copied by Darrow and then by Parker Brothers. A booklet included with the reprinted edition states that the four railroads that served Atlantic City in the mids were the Jersey Central , the Seashore Lines , the Reading Railroad , and the Pennsylvania Railroad.
There is a tunnel in Philadelphia where track to the south was B. The Central of N. In the s, John Waddington Ltd. Waddingtons was a printing company in Leeds that had begun to branch out into packaging and the production of playing cards.
In a similar fashion, Parker Brothers sent over a copy of Monopoly to Waddingtons early in before the game had been put into production in the United States.
Victor Watson, the managing director of Waddingtons, gave the game to his son Norman, head of the card games division, to test over the weekend.
Watson felt that for the game to be a success in the United Kingdom, the American locations would have to be replaced, so Victor and his secretary, Marjory Phillips, went to London to scout out locations.
It had been a coaching inn that stood on the Great North Road. By the s, the inn had become a J. Lyons and Co. Some accounts say that Marjory and Victor met at the Angel to discuss the selection and celebrated the fact by including it on the Monopoly board.
In , a plaque commemorating the naming was unveiled at the site by Victor Watson's grandson, who is also named Victor.
During World War II, the British Secret Service contacted Waddington who could also print on silk to make Monopoly sets that included escape maps, money, a compass and file, all hidden in copies of the game sent by fake POW relief charities to prisoners of war.
The standard British board, produced by Waddingtons, was for many years the version most familiar to people in countries in the Commonwealth except Canada, where the U.
In , Winning Moves procured the Monopoly license from Hasbro and created new UK city and regional editions  with sponsored squares.
Initially, in December , the game was sold in just a few W H Smith stores, but demand was high, with almost fifty thousand games shipped in the four weeks leading to Christmas.
Winning Moves still produces new city and regional editions annually. The original income tax choice from the s U.

Game play is further changed with bus tickets allowing non-dice-roll movement along one side of the board , a speed die itself adopted into variants of the Atlantic City standard edition ; see below , skyscrapers after houses and hotels , and train depots that can be placed on the Railroad spaces.

The board uses the traditional U. However, a similar edition of Monopoly , the Electronic Banking edition, does feature an electronic banking unit and bank cards, as well as a different set of tokens.
No other state is represented by more than one city not including the airports. One landmark, Texas Stadium , has been demolished and no longer exists.
Another landmark, Jacobs Field, still exists, but was renamed Progressive Field in In , in honor of the game's 80th birthday, Hasbro held an online vote to determine which cities would make it into an updated version of the Here and Now edition of the game.
This second edition is more a spin-off as the winning condition has changed to completing your passport instead of bankrupting your opponents.
Community Chest is replaced with Here and Now cards while the Here and Now space replaced the railroads. Houses and hotels have been removed.
Monopoly Empire has uniquely branded tokens and places based on popular brands. Instead of buying properties, players buy popular brands one by one and slide their billboards onto their Empire towers.
Instead of building houses and hotels, players collect rent from their rivals based on their tower height. How a player wins is by being the first player to fill his or her tower with billboards.
This version of Monopoly contains an extra eight "golden" tokens. That includes a penguin, a television, a race car, a Mr. Monopoly emoji, a rubber duck, a watch, a wheel and a bunny slipper.
During the game, players travel around the gameboard buying properties and collecting rent. If they land on a Chance space, or roll the Chance icon on a die, they can spin the Chance spinner to try to make more money.
Players may hit the "Jackpot", go bankrupt, or be sent to Jail. The player who has the most cash when the bank crashes wins.
In this version, there is no cash. The Monopoly Ultimate Banking game features an electronic ultimate banking piece with touch technology.
Players can buy properties instantly and set rents by tapping. Each player has a bankcard and their cash is tracked by the Ultimate Banking unit.
It can scan the game's property cards and boost or crash the market. Event cards and Location spaces replace Chance and Community Chest cards.
On an Event Space, rents may be raised or lowered, a player may earn or lose money, or someone could be sent to Jail.
Location Spaces allow players to pay and move to any property space on the gameboard. In this version, there's no cash or cards.
The Voice Banking game allows the player to respond with your voice with the Top Hat. The hat responds by purchasing properties, paying rent, and making buildings.
Monopoly is a version of the game released in , in which female players earn more than male players. All property deeds, houses, and hotels are held by the bank until bought by the players.
A standard set of Monopoly pieces includes:. A deck of thirty-two Chance and Community Chest cards sixteen each which players draw when they land on the corresponding squares of the track, and follow the instructions printed on them.
A title deed for each property is given to a player to signify ownership, and specifies purchase price, mortgage value, the cost of building houses and hotels on that property, and the various rents depending on how developed the property is.
Properties include:. A pair of six-sided dice is included, with a " Speed Die " added for variation in The Millennium Edition featured two jewel-like dice which were the subject of a lawsuit from Michael Bowling, owner of dice maker Crystal Caste.
Unlike money, houses and hotels have a finite supply. If no more are available, no substitute is allowed.
In most editions, houses are green and hotels red. Older U. Newer September and later U. Before September , the money was divided with greater numbers of 20 and dollar bills.
Since then, the U. Although the U. However, the amount of cash contained in the game is enough for eight players with a slight alteration of bill distribution.
Pre-Euro German editions of the game started with 30, "Spielmark" in eight denominations abbreviated as "M.
In the classic Italian game, each player received L. The classic Italian games were played with only four denominations of currency.
Both Spanish editions the Barcelona and Madrid editions started the game with , in play money, with a breakdown identical to that of the American version.
According to the Parker Brothers rules, Monopoly money is theoretically unlimited; if the bank runs out of money it may issue as much as needed "by merely writing on any ordinary paper".
In several countries there is also a version of the game that features electronic banking. Instead of receiving paper money, each player receives a plastic bank card that is inserted into a calculator-like electronic device that keeps track of the player's balance.
Each player is represented by a small metal or plastic token that is moved around the edge of the board according to the roll of two six-sided dice.
The number of tokens and the tokens themselves have changed over the history of the game with many appearing in special editions only, and some available with non-game purchases.
After prints with wood tokens in , a set of eight tokens was introduced. Many of the early tokens were created by companies such as Dowst Miniature Toy Company, which made metal charms and tokens designed to be used on charm bracelets.
The battleship and cannon were also used briefly in the Parker Brothers war game Conflict released in , but after the game failed on the market, the premade pieces were recycled for Monopoly usage.
These tokens remained the same until the late s, when Parker Brothers was sold to Hasbro. In , a Hasbro advertising campaign asked the public to vote on a new playing piece to be added to the set.
The candidates were a "bag of money", a bi-plane, and a piggy bank. In , a similar promotional campaign was launched encouraging the public to vote on one of several possible new tokens to replace an existing one.
The choices were a guitar, a diamond ring, a helicopter, a robot, and a cat. Both were chosen by a vote that ran on Facebook from January 8 to February 5, By March 17, , Hasbro retired three tokens which included the thimble, wheelbarrow, and boot, these were replaced by a penguin, a Tyrannosaurus and a rubber duck.
Over the years Hasbro has released tokens for special or collector's editions of the game. One of the first tokens to come out included a Steam Locomotive which was only released in Deluxe Editions.
Shortly after the Facebook voting campaign, a limited-edition Golden Token set was released exclusively at various national retailers, such as Target in the U.
These replacement tokens included the cat, the guitar, the diamond ring, the helicopter, and the robot. Players take turns in order with the initial player determined by chance before the game.
A typical turn begins with the rolling of the dice and advancing a piece clockwise around the board the corresponding number of squares.
If a player rolls doubles, they roll again after completing that portion of their turn. A player who rolls three consecutive sets of doubles on one turn has been "caught speeding" and is immediately sent to jail instead of moving the amount shown on the dice for the third roll.
Players who land on either Income Tax or Luxury Tax pay the indicated amount to the bank. No calculation could be made before the choice, and no latitude was given for reversing an unwise calculation.
No reward or penalty is given for landing on Free Parking. Properties can only be developed once a player owns all the properties in that color group.
They then must be developed equally. A house must be built on each property of that color before a second can be built. Each property within a group must be within one house level of all the others within that group.
If a player lands on a Chance or Community Chest space, they draw the top card from the respective deck and follow its instructions.
This may include collecting or paying money to the bank or another player or moving to a different space on the board.
When a player is sent to jail, they move directly to the Jail space and their turn ends " Do not pass Go.
If an ordinary dice roll not one of the above events ends with the player's token on the Jail corner, they are "Just Visiting" and can move ahead on their next turn without incurring any penalty.
If a player fails to roll doubles, they lose their turn. Players in jail may not buy properties directly from the bank since they are unable to move.
A player who rolls doubles to leave jail does not roll again; however, if the player pays the fine or uses a card to get out and then rolls doubles, they do take another turn.
If the player lands on an unowned property, whether street, railroad, or utility, they can buy the property for its listed purchase price.
If they decline this purchase, the property is auctioned off by the bank to the highest bidder, including the player who declined to buy.
When a player owns all the properties in a color group and none of them are mortgaged, they may develop them during their turn or in between other player's turns.
Development involves buying miniature houses or hotels from the bank and placing them on the property spaces; this must be done uniformly across the group.
That is, a second house cannot be built on any property within a group until all of them have one house. Once the player owns an entire group, they can collect double rent for any undeveloped properties within it.
Although houses and hotels cannot be built on railroads or utilities, the given rent increases if a player owns more than one of either type.
If there is a housing shortage more demand for houses to be built than what remains in the bank , then a housing auction is conducted to determine who will get to purchase each house.
Properties can also be mortgaged, although all developments on a monopoly must be sold before any property of that color can be mortgaged or traded.
The player receives half the purchase price from the bank for each mortgaged property. Houses and hotels can be sold back to the bank for half their purchase price.
Players cannot collect rent on mortgaged properties and may not give improved property away to others; however, trading mortgaged properties is allowed.
A player who cannot pay what they owe is bankrupt and eliminated from the game. If the bankrupt player owes the bank, they must turn all their assets over to the bank, who then auctions off their properties if they have any , except buildings.
If the debt is owed to another player instead, all assets are given to that opponent, except buildings which must be returned to the bank.
The winner is the remaining player left after all of the others have gone bankrupt. If a player runs out of money but still has assets that can be converted to cash, they can do so by selling buildings, mortgaging properties, or trading with other players.
To avoid bankruptcy the player must be able to raise enough cash to pay the full amount owed. A player cannot choose to go bankrupt; if there is any way to pay what they owe, even by returning all their buildings at a loss, mortgaging all their real estate and giving up all their cash, even knowing they are likely going bankrupt the next time, they must do so.
From , the rules booklet included with each Monopoly set contained a short section at the end providing rules for making the game shorter, including dealing out two Title Deed cards to each player before starting the game, by setting a time limit or by ending the game after the second player goes bankrupt.
A later version of the rules included this variant, along with the time limit game, in the main rules booklet, omitting the last, the second bankruptcy method, as a third short game.
Many house rules have emerged for the game throughout its history. Well-known is the "Free Parking jackpot rule", where all the money collected from Income Tax, Luxury Tax, Chance and Community Chest goes to the center of the board instead of the bank.
When a player lands on Free Parking, they may take the money. Since these rules provide additional cash to players regardless of their property management choices, they can lengthen the game considerably and limit the role of strategy.
Video game and computer game versions of Monopoly have options where popular house rules can be used. In , Hasbro determined five popular house rules by public Facebook vote, and released a "House Rules Edition" of the board game.
Rules selected include a "Free Parking" house rule without additional money and forcing players to traverse the board once before buying properties.
Among the property groups, the Railroads are most frequently landed upon, as no other group has four properties; Orange has the next highest frequency, followed by Red.
One common criticism of Monopoly is that although it has carefully defined termination conditions, it may take an unlimited amount of time to reach them.
Edward P. Parker, a former president of Parker Brothers , is quoted as saying, "We always felt that forty-five minutes was about the right length for a game, but Monopoly could go on for hours.
Also, a game was supposed to have a definite end somewhere. In Monopoly you kept going around and around. Hasbro states that the longest game of Monopoly ever played lasted 70 days.
Numerous add-ons have been produced for Monopoly , sold independently from the game both before its commercialization and after, with three official ones discussed below:.
Shortly after Capitol Novelty introduced Stock Exchange , Parker Brothers bought it from them then marketed their own, slightly redesigned, version as an add-on specifically for their "new" Monopoly game; the Parker Brothers version was available in June The Free Parking square is covered over by a new Stock Exchange space and the add-on included three Chance and three Community Chest cards directing the player to "Advance to Stock Exchange".
The Stock Exchange add-on was later redesigned and re-released in under license by Chessex , this time including a larger number of new Chance and Community Chest cards.
Many of the original rules applied to this new version in fact, one optional play choice allows for playing in the original form by only adding the "Advance to Stock Exchange" cards to each deck.
This was a full edition, not just an add-on, that came with its own board, money and playing pieces. Properties on the board were replaced by companies on which shares could be floated, and offices and home offices instead of houses and hotels could be built.
Playmaster, another official add-on, released in , is an electronic device that keeps track of all player movement and dice rolls as well as what properties are still available.
It then uses this information to call random auctions and mortgages making it easier to free up cards of a color group. It also plays eight short tunes when key game functions occur; for example when a player lands on a railroad it plays " I've Been Working on the Railroad ", and a police car's siren sounds when a player goes to Jail.
In , Hasbro released two minigames that can be played as stand-alone games or combined with the Monopoly game.
In Get Out of Jail , the goal is to manipulate a spade under a jail cell to flick out various colored prisoners. The game can be used as an alternative to rolling doubles to get out of jail.
The Free Parking add-on can also be used with the Monopoly game. When a player lands on the Free Parking, the player can take the Taxi Challenge, and if successful, can move to any space on the board.
First included in Winning Moves' Monopoly: The Mega Edition variant, this third, six-sided die is rolled with the other two, and accelerates game-play when in use.
Its faces are: 1, 2, 3, two " Mr. Monopoly " sides, and a bus. The numbers behave as normal, adding to the other two dice, unless a "triple" is rolled, in which case the player can move to any space on the board.
If "Mr. Monopoly" is rolled while there are unowned properties, the player advances forward to the nearest one. Otherwise, the player advances to the nearest property on which rent is owed.
In the Monopoly: Mega Edition , rolling the bus allows the player to take the regular dice move, then either take a bus ticket or move to the nearest draw card space.
Mega rules specifies that triples do not count as doubles for going to jail as the player does not roll again. In these editions it remains optional, although use of the Speed Die was made mandatory for use in the U.
Parker Brothers and its licensees have also sold several spin-offs of Monopoly. These are not add-ons, as they do not function as an addition to the Monopoly game, but are simply additional games with the flavor of Monopoly :.
Besides the many variants of the actual game and the Monopoly Junior spin-off released in either video game or computer game formats e.
Monopoly -themed slot machines and lotteries have been produced by WMS Gaming in conjunction with International Game Technology for land-based casinos.
London's Gamesys Group have also developed Monopoly -themed gambling games. There was also a live, online version of Monopoly. Six painted taxis drive around London picking up passengers.
When the taxis reach their final destination, the region of London that they are in is displayed on the online board.
This version takes far longer to play than board-game Monopoly , with one game lasting 24 hours. Results and position are sent to players via e-mail at the conclusion of the game.
The show was produced by Merv Griffin and hosted by Mike Reilly. The show was paired with a summer-long Super Jeopardy!
In addition, beginning with Season 2, teams won "Monopoly Party Packages" for winning the individual games. For Season 3, there was a Community Chest.
Each card on Mr. Monopoly had a combination of three colors. Teams used the combination card to unlock the chest. If it was the right combination, they advanced to the Crazy Cash Machine for a brand-new car.
To honor the game's 80th anniversary, a game show in syndication on March 28, , called Monopoly Millionaires' Club was launched.
However, the lottery game connected with the game show which provided the contestants went through multiple complications and variations, and the game show last aired at the end of April In November , Ridley Scott was announced to direct Universal Pictures ' film version of the game, based on a script written by Pamela Pettler.
The film was being co-produced by Hasbro's Brian Goldner as part of a deal with Hasbro to develop movies based on the company's line of toys and games.
In July , Hasbro announced that Lionsgate will distribute a Monopoly film with Andrew Niccol writing the film as a family-friendly action adventure film  co-financed and produced by Lionsgate and Hasbro's Allspark Pictures.
Hart is attached to star in the film and Tim Story is attached to direct. No logline or writer for this iteration of the long-gestating project has been announced.
The film played theatrically in the U. Until , U. The U. National Tournament had 50 contestants - 49 State Champions Oklahoma was not represented and the reigning national champion.
Qualifying for the National Championship has been online since For the Championship, qualification was limited to the first fifty people who correctly completed an online quiz.
The process was to have produced a field of 23 plus one: Matt McNally , the national champion, who received a bye and was not required to qualify.
However, at the end of the online tournament, there was an eleven-way tie for the last six spots.
The decision was made to invite all of those who had tied for said spots. In fact, two of those who had tied and would have otherwise been eliminated, Dale Crabtree of Indianapolis, Indiana, and Brandon Baker, of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, played in the final game and finished third and fourth respectively.
The Monopoly U. National Championship was held on April 14—15 in Washington, D. In his first tournament ever, Richard Marinaccio, an attorney from Sloan, New York a suburb of Buffalo , prevailed over a field that included two previous champions to be crowned the U.
National Champion. In , Hasbro used a competition that was held solely online to determine who would be the U.
Interested players took a twenty-question quiz on Monopoly strategy and rules and submitted a hundred-word essay on how to win a Monopoly tournament.
Hasbro then selected Brian Valentine of Washington, D. Hasbro conducts a worldwide Monopoly tournament. Because Monopoly evolved in the public domain before its commercialization, Monopoly has seen many variant games.
The game is licensed in countries and printed in thirty-seven languages. National boards have been released as well. This world edition features top locations of the world.
The locations were decided by votes over the Internet. The result of the voting was announced on August 20, Out of these, Gdynia is especially notable, as it is by far the smallest city of those featured and won the vote thanks to a spontaneous, large-scale mobilization of support started by its citizens.
The new game uses its own currency unit, the Monopolonian a game-based take on the Euro; designated by M.
The game uses said unit in millions and thousands. As seen below, there is no dark purple color-group, as that is replaced by brown, as in the European version of the game.
No other countries are represented by more than one city. Of the 68 cities listed on Hasbro Inc. Darrow's game board designs included elements later made famous in the version eventually produced by Parker Brothers, including black locomotives on the railroad spaces, the car on "Free Parking", the red arrow for "Go", the faucet on "Water Works", the light bulb on "Electric Company", and the question marks on the "Chance" spaces, though many of the actual icons were created by a hired graphic artist.
Darrow first took the game to Milton Bradley and attempted to sell it as his personal invention. They rejected it in a letter dated May 31, In early , however, the company heard about the game's excellent sales during the Christmas season of in Philadelphia and at F.
Schwarz in New York City. Parker Brothers held the Magie and Darrow patents, but settled with Copeland rather than going to trial, since Copeland was prepared to have witnesses testify that they had played Monopoly before Darrow's "invention" of the game.
Monopoly was first marketed on a broad scale by Parker Brothers in A Standard Edition, with a small black box and separate board, and a larger Deluxe Edition, with a box large enough to hold the board, were sold in the first year of Parker Brothers' ownership.
These were based on the two editions sold by Darrow. Nor were there property values printed on spaces on the board. Some of the designs known today were implemented at the behest of George Parker.
Darrow admitted that he had copied the game from a friend's set, and he and Barton reached a revised royalty agreement, granting Parker Brothers worldwide rights and releasing Darrow from legal costs that would be incurred in defending the origin of the game.
Watson and his son Norman tried the game over a weekend, and liked it so much that Waddington took the then extraordinary step of making a transatlantic "trunk call" to Parker Brothers, the first such call made or received by either company.
The game was very successful in the United Kingdom and France, but the German edition, published by Schmidt Spiele disappeared from the market within three years.
This edition, featuring locations from Berlin, was denounced, allegedly by Joseph Goebbels to the Hitler Youth due to the game's "Jewish-speculative character".
Goebbels, again who lived on those sections of the game board given the highest property values, and not wanting to be associated with a game.
Waddington licensed other editions from to , and the game was exported from the UK and resold or reprinted in Switzerland, Belgium, Australia, Chile, The Netherlands, and Sweden.
In Italy, under the fascists , the game was changed dramatically so that it would have an Italian name, locations in Milan , and major changes in the rules.
