Welcome to our tribute site for the Monopoly Game

Who would have guessed that an ingenious game based around the big idea of owning and growing property could have become so ubiquitous? Monopoly has developed into so much more than just a household board game.

We have dedicated an entire website to news and reviews on all things Monopoly to give you the most fascinating and up-to-date information about one of the world’s most beloved board games.

Today, themed versions of Monopoly exist as far as the eye can see from Game of Thrones and Harry Potter to Marvel Superheros and Star Wars. There are hundreds of versions of the game and even a version with a blank board where you can make your theme!

Little known fact #1

Do you know the names of the iconic Monopoly characters? The tycoon mascot is currently named Mr. Monopoly but used to be called Rich Uncle Pennybags. The poor schlub locked up behind bars is named Jake the Jailbird, and the lawman of the Monopoly world is named Officer Edward Malloy.

There Is A Version For Everyone

You will almost certainly find a version that will resonate with you. The fun compounds when rolling the dice on a Stranger Things board where chance cards are replaced with blinking lights and walkie-talkie cards take the place of the community chest.

Another amusing example is the Deadpool-themed board. On this irreverent board, in place of the classic thimble, hat, and iron, you’ll find tokens that reflect the Deadpool franchise including the OK sign, a taco, and a bomb.

Any Fortnite fans? Of course, there are! The Fortnite-themed board has several unique attributes including an “action” die, which triggers some actions such as building walls and damaging opponents.

Little known fact #2

Did you know the very first version of Monopoly was developed by Elizabeth Magie and existed as early as 1902? This early version was called “The Landlords Game.”

WAY More Than Just A Board Game!

Not every board game in the world has its very own tournaments. Nor do many have video games developed from them. It seems so natural to dedicate a site to all things Monopoly for both the die-hard board-flipping fans and the casual weekend player.

How Long Have You Lasted?

Some games are short and sweet while others last weeks. Amazingly, Monopoly doesn’t have a time limit in either direction

On the other hand, the longest game of Monopoly on record lasted seventy straight days! (Hopefully, they had some breaks.)

Maybe you’re the sort who can play for under a minute or the dedicated type who can endure playing for over a month straight. Either way, we have the news and reviews to keep you informed.

A few more facts about Monopoly…

Monopoly is a worldwide sensation

The games are based on the real-life experiences and places in the Atlantic City and New Jersey. But even so, monopoly games are a global phenomenon. The Monopoly board games have been sold in more than 100 countries and have 47 language translations.

The cost of the game

Monopoly board games vary in price. The original Monopoly game was at $2, but currently, it is around a few dozen dollars. However, there is a considerable possibility of spending a whole lot more on Monopoly board games. The most expensive Monopoly board game was created by a San Francisco jeweler, Sidney Mobell. It goes at $2 million.

You can go to jail

Jail, Illinois Ave, and Go are the three most landed-on spaces in a traditional game. But it’s said that going to jail is not a bad thing. Ask the champions, and they will tell you that going to jail is good.

It might seem like going to jail is the worst thing during Monopoly board games. However, being in prison could be a strategy to win. According to the 2015 Monopoly board game-winner, Natalie Fitzsimons, it’s best to sit in jail at the end of the game so you can collect money from your opponents rather than just landing on their properties and owing them lots of money.
