This Week in History… Monopoly is released by Parkers Brothers. Invented by Charles B. Darrow (who based it on a game called “the Landlord Game” patented thirty years earlier). Darrow started out by making the board game himself, but eventually looked for a manufacturer to produce it at greater scale. Parker Brothers turned down Darrow at first, before changing its mind and buying the game that would become the best-selling board game of all time. (1935)
