Monopoly: The Story Behind the World's Best-Selling Game
Most people probably don't think about the fact that the colored properties on the Monopoly board are based on real places in a real city, they just know that Monopoly was the best way to pass a rainy Saturday afternoon with family and friends. Now, the whole story of game and the place it is based on is revealed in Monopoly & Atlantic City ... The Game and the Reality by Rod Kennedy, Jr.
Take a virtual walk down Boardwalk and advance to St. Charles Place through this fascinating visualization of the classic Monopoly game board illustrated with Atlantic City images that brings to life, for the very first time, the very real place upon which this game is based.
