Monopoly - 1948/9


The origins of the Monopoly board game go back to the early 1900s and a game called Landlord's Game, invented by an American Quaker, Lizzie Magie. The original idea of the game was to teach children about the evils of property speculation a few years later this was adapted and John Waddington secured the rights to make a UK version of the game and the London Monopoly board was created in 1936.

This set in question dates back to around 1948-49 with post wartime cardboard playing pieces with plain coloured bases and darker print colours throughout. The box and board are separate. 


Good condition, slight wearing to the board and box, but this is to be expected with a game of this age. Grade 2 under the Hoyles Vintage Grading System
