In the classic board game Monopoly you become a multimillionaire.
Monopoly is one of the most successful board games in the world, which was developed in 1935 by Parker and for a little over 20 years, Hasbro heard. However, the gameplay remained the same: You buy streets and stations, builds a lot of houses and hotels and take your opponent out really. Meanwhile, the board game in innumerable special editions is available. Whether in the Lord of the Rings-, Pokemon or Zelda version, anyone who likes to play Monopoly, will eventually correct the copy. Even new technologies are sometimes used and so there are some versions in which paid their bills instead of Monopoly with credit cards. However, although the board game to capitalism is so successful and after 80 years of existence, now celebrating the birthday of Monopoly, it is always in the criticism. It is often the one hand, the "Money rules the world" atmosphere while playing, but also that players were driven apart instead of being welded together. Every now and then is also the accusation loud in Monopoly only luck plays a role player himself could not intervene. This is now again a little hard to understand, after all tactical issues (Which road do I buy? Who do I give a loan?) Is essential for the outcome of the classic board game.
