And you are not familiar with the history of its creator?
Charles Darrow was fired when America suffered a financial crisis 30 years, he could suffer and complain about life and circumstances.
But the guy kept his head and came up with this game.And once rich ?!
Certainly not.He proposed version of the game known manufacturer of table games "Parker Brothers".Experts of the company said - "Your game is boring and not attract attention."As they were wrong!Chel kept his head and decided to release the game in the light itself!...
Then she called the "Atlantic City" as part of the name of the game different places and streets of this city meet.
Darrow made copies created games and selling them to friends and acquaintances.Buyers introduced their friends to the game, and the result was soon Darrow orders fell off in large numbers.
game spreads very quickly and then the representatives of the company "Parker Brothers" realized it and have themselves entered the Charles with a tempting offer.
In 1935 the game was released under the name "Monopoly" and immediately won the American market and soon spread around the world.
Now this game is translated into 26 languages and sold in 45 countries.So much time has passed since its inception, but the game still has not lost its relevance.
in this success story there is one very interesting fact.In 1904, a certain Lizzie Meiji patented game "landlord."Ie30 years before the appearance of "Monopoly."
principle of the game, "landowner" is based on the possession of landed property.This game Lizzie tried to draw attention to the issue of equitable property taxes in America.Perhaps that is why the game Meiji had such a resounding success, asconsidered biased policies.
The game "landlord" and "Monopoly" is very much in common.But the goal of the game "Monopoly" is still to be a businessman - a monopolist, to bypass the other players at the turning point.There is a version that Darrow just took the game Lizzie and finalized it.
Whatever it was, it became a cult game Darrow!So, he found a way into the hearts of people!
In 1973, Ralph Anspech economics professor tried to overthrow the pedestal creator of the game "Monopoly", releasing their game "antimonopoly".
His game was dedicated to counter-attack all the games business, but especially the "Monopoly."This game also has its fans, but to kill the popularity of "Monopoly" and she could not.

gameplay with a simple and clear model describes the main stages of the formation of large financial structures: the purchase and sale of land monetization, competition, the "problem" with taxes, the process of obtaining credit and loans, as well as the policy relationship between financial bigwigs.

A lot depends on your vision, the ability to properly assess the resources and their distribution, as well - luck.If you are lucky, you can long enough to go from the competition - but a healthy calculation and preparation of responses, however, are much safer.
Notes for parents:
«Monopoly" teaches the basic principles of the Smithsonian economy, and makes it clear that the money - it's just a means to an end.
Probably the greatest psychological effect on the game becomes a perception that they do not need to save, and should not be afraid to start up in business.
It is on this principle, memorized thanks to the "Monopoly", a whole generation of successful businessmen.
ideas and determination that's what distinguishes the business from the common people.How to make a million?Is it possible to make it at a young age - read about a millionaire who made his first million dollars in 8 years.
