When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro. - Hunter S. Thompson

A classic board game (born in the last great American financial upheaval) - now updated for the modern era.


I Did Not Know This:
In 1941 the British Secret Service had John Waddington Ltd., the licensed manufacturer of [Monopoly] outside the U.S., create a special edition for World War II prisoners of war held by the Nazis.[5] Hidden inside these games were maps, compasses, real money, and other objects useful for escaping. They were distributed to prisoners by the International Red Cross.
Cool.  And so smart.
