    I got my game when I was 9 years old, say 1958. It was $4, quite a hefty sum when $1 was a modest adult hourly wage. We used to use different things as tokens. I often was a key. This way I could burglarize the hotel rooms.

      I always liked the rare Eisenhower-era edition that included a third utility, the Military-Industrial Complex, but that $150 billion rent was a bitch.

    I blame that monocled sonofabitch Mr. Moneybags, workin’ those tokens like slaves. He’s like the Joe Jackson of board games.
