On this day in 1935, Parker Brother acquired the patent for the game Monopoly from Elizabeth Magie.
It was a redesign of the game called “The Landlord’s Game”.
Ms. Magie was a political activist.
More than 1 Billion people have played the game, making it the most played board game ever.
So, since it’s cold outside, and unusually so for Georgia this time of year, stay in, stay warm, and play Monopoly, or Clue, or Scrabble, or Footsies.
Have great weekend!
