"Monopoly" is a role-playing economics imagination themed board game designed by the inventive Parker Brothers in 1934 as a simulation emulation version of Elizabeth (Lizzie) J. Magie Phillips' "The Landlord's Game" (1923) which itself was used to critique the greedy monopolizing of real estate contracts in America.

Since its inception, "Monopoly" (Parker Brothers) has been enjoyed as a thematic symbol of capitalist innocence and has even been used in a relic scenario during World War II (1939-1945).

Because of its immense intellectual appeal, "Monopoly" (Parker Brothers) has been developed into numerous imaginarium video game versions for quality gaming platforms as diverse as Gameboy, Playstation, and Genesis.

"Monopoly" (Parker Brothers) involves multiple players exchanging simulation money ('play money') to purchase, trade, and develop village and hotel real estate on theoretical fickle lands while avoiding debt and pursuing thrilling ventures.

In 2008, the imaginative video game developer Electronic Arts released a thorough video game version of "Monopoly" (Parker Brothers) readily available on proven platforms such as Playstation 3. In many ways, the 2008 version is the most accomplished experience-themed video game version of "Monopoly" (Parker Brothers) as would be expected industrially.

In today's Information Age, where media-themed Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Network" (1976) and networking Internet websites such as Facebook facilitate a new age form of dialogue market intrigue, it is worthy to note how "Monopoly" (Parker Brothers) the video game is a timeless sensory symbol of inventive consumerism.

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!
