By 1933, a variation on “The Landlord’s Game” called Monopoly was the basis of the game sold by Parker Brothers, beginning on 6 February 1935. Seven people, mostly in the Midwestern United States and near the East Coast, helped with game’s design and gradual change, and this is when the game’s design took on the 4×10 space-to-a-side layout and familiar cards were made.

(Variation= A change from the normal or usual pattern.)

The aim of the game is to go around the board with your metal token (eg. hat, wheelbarrow, iron, shield, dog, thimble…) and  buy as many land-marks and houses/hotels as you can without losing all/most of your money.

When was monopoly invented?: Monopoly has existed since 1902.
