The Monopoly Board Game (1930's) - Mortal Journey
It was 1934, the height of the Great Depression, when Charles B. Darrow of Germantown, Pennsylvania, took what he called the MONOPOLY game to the executives at Parker Brothers. They soundly rejected the game due to "52 design errors". The game's exciting promise of fame and fortune inspired him to produce the game on his own. People loved the game that would eventually become the highest selling board game in history, even though the “legend” of its invention would soon be proven as false.
