  • In it, he argued that renting out land only profited a few individuals at the expense of the community.


  • To teach people about George's theories, Lizzie Magie created a game with two sets of rules.

    為了傳授喬治的理論,Lizzie Magie 發明了一個有兩套不同規則的遊戲。

  • In one, players all shared money when someone purchased a piece of land.


  • And in the other, everyone tried to get as rich as possible while bankrupting others.


  • This way, she hoped people would see how unfair land-grabbing was.


  • The Landlord's Game, as it was known, became popular, particularly among Quakers.


  • With each person drawing the board by hand onto tablecloths or fabric and modifying the rules.


  • One of those people was Charles Darrow.

    其中一個人是 Charles Darrow。

  • He would only use the rules that were cutthroat and made a version of the board in the shape of his dining table.


  • He also took street names from Atlantic City, grouping them by color and adding small illustrations to create the board we know today.


  • When Parker Brothers bought the rights to Monopoly from Darrow in 1935, they soon added a portly mascot with a top hat and cane, rumored to be modeled on wealthy banker J.P. Morgan.

    當 Parker Brothers 在 1935 年向 Darrow 買下《大富翁》的版權後,他們很快加上了一個戴著高帽、拿著拐杖的發福吉祥物,據傳是以富裕的銀行家 J.P. 摩根為原型。

  • They also distributed every set with metal tokens, inspired by the trinkets Darrow had used from his niece's charm bracelet.

    他們也在每一組遊戲中分配金屬代表棋子,靈感來自於 Darrow 使用的小飾品,其原本為他姪女幸運手鍊上的裝飾。

  • Within a year of the release, 35,000 copies of Monopoly were being made each week.

    在《大富翁》發行後一年內,每週都會賣出 35,000 份《大富翁》。

  • Now more than 1 billion people in 114 countries have played the game.
