The history of the board game Monopoly can be traced back to the early 20th century. The earliest known version of Monopoly, known as The Landlord’s Game, was designed by an American, Elizabeth Magie, and first patented in 1904 . By 1933, a variation on The Landlord’s Game called Monopoly was the basis of the board game sold by Parker Brothers, beginning on February 6, 1935.

So today get your old set out & play a game of Monopoly with your family have fun together but you can also make it a school lesson if your or at home or the library.

A few things this game can teach  to all ages:

  1. You work for a Payday (spend wisely)
  2. You can go to Jail. Have to pay taxes & utilities . Chances are not always good,
  3. It’s best to save some cash back.
  4. Be patient & manage cash flow.
  5. The most expensive place might not be the best.
  6. Don’t spend all your money in one place.

These are great lesson anyone can follow. Lisa
