Poster with a reproduction of the patent for the game Monopoly.
Monopoly was created in the likeness of Landlord's Game (Game landowners) by Elizabeth Magie from Illinois. This game was mainly intended to show what a monopoly in the real estate market can lead to, and not to keep people entertained (which is why it was not successful). For this reason, Charles Darrow decided to improve it by introducing minor changes suggested by existing players and release Monopolyunder his own name. In spite of Elizabeth, the game has become one of the symbols of America and the free market.
The Charles Darrow patent is for a board game that consists in multiplying capital by trading real estate and collecting rent from other players. Moving on the board, players buy real estate, streets and other objects. There is also a bank in the game, which is a lender, taxpayer and paying players a salary for exceeding the "Start" field. The players, through appropriate financial activities, try to lead their rivals to bankruptcy. In case of success, they take over the properties of the bankrupting rival. The person who goes bankrupt is eliminated from the rest of the game, and the last player who manages to stay on the board becomes the monopolist and thus wins the game.
Patent No. US2026082 A was issued in 1935 by the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
