Monopoly Nostalgia Edition
This collectible item is a Parker Brothers Monopoly board game, one of the most popular board games around the world. It is stored in a wooden box that has a slide-open top with the 1957 railroad art on the front side and the history of Monopoly (with visuals) on the other side.
In addition, the box contains:
- 1930s style game board
- Built-in banker’s tray
- 2 dice
- 6 antique-looking tokens ( individually wrapped and sealed)
- Wooden houses and hotels
- Aged-looking Monopoly money
- Chance cards, title deed cards, and community chest cards
When Monopoly was first introduced in 1935 in America, the Great Depression was in full swing. Families couldn’t afford the luxury of going out and spending real money. So instead, they decided to stay home and buy real estate with fake Monopoly money.
The game provided players with hours of entertainment which helped to relieve their stress. Consequently, Monopoly’s popularity skyrocketed. And because Parker Brothers felt the financial strain as well, they came out with a more economical version of the game.
It was a small box that had wooden tokens because using wood meant using less paper which lowered the cost. Using wood also meant the product was more durable which made it last longer. The Monopoly Nostalgia Edition is reminiscent of that version.
Furthermore, the Monopoly Nostalgia Edition set has never been used. Therefore, it is in excellent condition. This item makes a terrific gift for collectors and board game enthusiasts.
