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
game’s 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.
OBJECT…The object of the game is to become the wealthiest player
through buying, renting and selling property.
EQUIPMENT…The 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.
PREPARATION…Place 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 $500’s,
$100’s and $50’s; 6 $20’s; 5 each of $10’s, $5’s and $1’s.
All remaining money and other equipment go to the Bank.
BANKER…Select as Banker a player who will also make a good
Auctioneer. A Banker who plays in the game must keep his/her
personal funds separate from those of the Bank. When more than five
persons play, the Banker may elect to act only as Banker and
THE BANK…Besides the Bank’s money, the Bank holds the Title Deed
cards and houses and hotels prior to purchase and use by the players.
The Bank pays salaries and bonuses. It sells and auctions properties
and hands out their proper Title Deed cards; it sells houses and hotels
to the players and loans money when required on mortgages.
The Bank collects all taxes, fines, loans and interest, and the price of
all properties which it sells and auctions.
The Bank never “goes broke.” If the Bank runs out of money, the
Banker may issue as much more as may be needed by writing on any
