‘Monopoly’ was first sold (1935)

Monopoly is one of the world’s most famous games. It was created by an American citizen named Charles B. Darrow during the great depression. In 1934, he presented the game to executives at a big game manufacturing company and was rejected. A year later, after he sold 5,000 homemade copies of the game to his local community, the game manufacturing company bought the game. Now, millions of people around the world enjoy this thrilling game.
