There are about a million and one different versions of the board game Monopoly, but rarely do you ever see one that folds up compactly into a vintage-looking library book. Introducing the Monopoly Library Classic Edition board game.
Would you believe that this game was actually invented by an American woman back in 1904? I wonder if she’s been paid her royalties, or has Parker Brothers taken the… monopoly? Just like in real life, you’ll prefer houses made of authentic wood rather than houses made of plastic. It’s also convenient how the money tray is small and comes out of the book, so whoever wants to be “banker” has quick ‘n easy access, and automatically gets to feel superior to all the other players. Typical!
