Pass Go and Collect $200 : The Real Story of How Monopoly Was Invented Hardback


In the late 1800s lived Lizzie Magie, a clever and charismatic woman with a strong sense of justice.

Waves of urban migration drew Lizzie's attention to rising financial inequality.

Suddenly she had an idea: create a game about the landlord-tenant relationship.

But Lizzie's initial game vilified the monopolist. Enter Charles Darrow - a marketer and salesman with a keen eye for what Lizzie's creation could become: an enticing board game, and a staple of family entertainment in households across America. Boldness, imagination, and ruthless competition combine in this riveting story that sets the record straight on the history of Monopoly's origins.
