History of Monopoly

It was 1934, the height of the Depression, when Charles B. Darrow of Germantown, Pennsylvania, showed what he called the MONOPOLY game to the executives at Parker Brothers. Can you believe it, they rejected the game. The executives felt that the game took to long to play.

But a major New York toy and game store, the prestigious F. A. O. Schwarz, bought two hundred sets with the belief that this would become a top selling game.

Parker Brothers reconsidered and the rest, as they say, is history! In its first year, 1935, the MONOPOLY game was the best-selling game in America. And over its 65-year history, an estimated 500 million people have played!

How To Win at Monopoly

1. Know the odds - you're likely to roll doubles once in five turns.

2. Buy smart. Always pick up available properties if: (1) no other player owns one of the same group; (2) the purchase would give you two or three of the same group; or (3) it blocks someone else from completing a set.

3. Remember that Illinois Avenue is the square most often landed on (not including Jail). The B&O Railroad also is among those most landed on; Go rounds out the top three.

4. Get out of jail quickly early in the game, even if you have to pay the $50. Later on, when moving around the board is more dangerous, stay in jail as long as you can.

5. When you build, get to three houses as quickly as possible.

6. If you're stuck with low-income properties, build to four houses quickly to create a building shortage.

7. Avoid mortgaging properties where you own two or more of the properties.

8. The second set of properties on all four sides of the board is a better investment. One reason: houses and hotels cost the same to build as for the first set of properties, but the rent is higher.

9. The trio of orange properties is an excellent monopoly to own because of their relationship to Jail. A roll of 6 or 8 (two of the most common rolls) from Jail lands you on an orange.
