That classic board game that I remember from childhood – for rainy afternoons during the summer – was invented or patented today (or some other day) by Elizabeth Magie as the Landlord’s Game, or by Charles Darrow, in 1904 or 1933, or some other time and by some other people. History here.

But it remains popular today and enjoys many variations.

All I know is, whenever it came time to clean up and put the game away, my younger brother always found that he had to be somewhere else urgently and left me to sort the money and cards – every single time.
