Philadelphian Charles Darrow plays a homemade version of Elizabeth Magie’s Landlord’s Game, by then called Monopoly. People enjoy playing capitalists as the Great Depression grinds wearily on. Darrow manufactures and markets the game himself—as Monopoly—and then sells the rights to Parker Brothers.
