About the Book:
Learn about the board game Monopoly. It began as a way to teach people about income inequality. From there, it grew into the popular property buying, selling, and trading game we know today. Explore the history of Monopoly and peer into the future of one of the world's most popular games. Monopoly will give you a behind-the-scenes look at a great game, with features that include: a glossary, index, and bibliography for further reading.
Monopoly has been my favorite board game since I was a child. I never win (and I'm not kidding when I say never) but I love to play anyway. My love for the game has even expanded into buying several of the Monopoly variants; Metallica, Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer, Back to the Future, Zelda, and even the Friends edition.
I really enjoyed learning the history behind the game. The origins are interesting, sad, yet typical for women. The book describes the game's rules and features. There are also "Did you know?" facts and information. The WWII facts were eye-opening and nothing I'd ever heard about prior to reading this book.
If you are a lover of Monopoly and love learning history and facts, this book is right up your alley. I recommend it for game players, collectors, and anyone who loves to learn new things.
I was provided a copy of this book to read through NetGalley.
