  • Parker Brothers Real Estate Trading Game
    In 1934, Charles B. Darrow of Germantown, Pennsylvania, presented a
    game called MONOPOLY to the executives of Parker Brothers. Mr.
    Darrow, like many other Americans, was unemployed at the time and
    often played this game to amuse himself and pass the time. It was the
    games exciting promise of fame and fortune that initially prompted
    Darrow to produce this game on his own.
    With help from a friend who was a printer, Darrow sold 5,000 sets
    of the MONOPOLY game to a Philadelphia department store. As the
    demand for the game grew, Darrow could not keep up with the orders
    and arranged for Parker Brothers to take over the game.
    Since 1935, when Parker Brothers acquired the rights to the game, it
    has become the leading proprietary game not only in the United States
    but throughout the Western World. As of 1994, the game is published
    under license in 43 countries, and in 26 languages; in addition, the
    U.S. Spanish edition is sold in another 11 countries.
    OBJECTThe object of the game is to become the wealthiest player
    through buying, renting and selling property.
    EQUIPMENTThe equipment consists of a board, 2 dice, tokens, 32
    houses and 12 hotels. There are Chance and Community Chest cards,
    a Title Deed card for each property and play money.
    PREPARATIONPlace the board on a table and put the Chance and
    Community Chest cards face down on their allotted spaces on the
    board. Each player chooses one token to represent him/her while
    traveling around the board.
    Each player is given $1500 divided as follows: 2 each of $500s,
    $100s and $50s; 6 $20s; 5 each of $10s, $5s and $1s.
    All remaining money and other equipment go to the Bank.

    Auctioneer. A Banker who plays in the game must keep his/her
    personal funds separate from those of the Bank. When more than five

    Auctioneer.
