Monopoly® was created on March 19, 1935, when Parker Brothers acquired the rights to it and since then an estimated 1 billion people have weighed the merits of buying up utilities and railroads or trying to hit it big with Boardwalk hotels.
Hasbro who owns the rights to the board game announced today, “the boot has been booted, the wheelbarrow has been wheeled out and the thimble got the thumbs down."
In their place will be a tyrannosaurus rex dinosaur, a penguin and a rubber ducky.
I blame Russia for this!
