Days of the Year | National Monopoly Day is November 19th

It started as an innocent Google search for the origin of this holiday, celebrating one of the most loved/hated/adored/despised board games. Ever. Once I started finding amusing graphics, giggling and spitting across the keyboard it was time to share them with you.

Considered by some as "the most popular board game in the world", it is based on a game designed in 1902 by Elizabeth Magie. Published by Parker Brothers in 1935, it's estimated that more than 5 million people have played it. (wow. but they didn't all "play", ha ha)
