Monopoly was originally published by Parker Brothers in 1935, and has been one of the best selling board games in the history of gaming. Hundreds of different versions of Monopoly have been produced over the decades, including Monopoly: Cheaters Edition, Monopoly: Batman, Monopoly: Disney Edition, and countless imitation version of the classic game.
The earliest patented version of Monopoly was created by Elizabeth Magie in 1902, who called her board-game The Landlord’s Game with the intent of sharing the economic principles of journalist Henry George. Multiple revisions and adaptations between 1906 and the 1930’s contributed to the version of Monopoly that exists today.
