While the origins of Monopoly can be traced back to 1903, the game we know it as today wasn’t created until 1933. Parker Brothers started selling it on February 6th, 1935 and was licensing the game for sale outside of the United States by 1936.
Fun Fact: In 1941, the British Secret Intelligence Service had the UK’s licensed manufacturer of the game – Josh Waddington Ltd. – create a special World War II edition of the game for prisoners of war who were being held by the Nazis. Hidden inside these special editions were useful objects that prisons could use to escape. They were handed out to prisoners by fake charity groups that were created by the British secret service.
Today Monopoly is one of the most popular board games in the world that many people can remember playing as children with parents and friends. Those fond, or perhaps not-so-fond, memories are likely where a lot of the tattoos featured below originate from.
