Monopoly

board game

Parker Brothers game manufacturers purchased the rights to Charles Darrow's game Monopoly in 1935, and began publishing its own version of the game, based on versions and unsold stock which Darrow still held. One of these was based on Darrow's larger "white box" edition, very similar in size and shape to other deluxe editions of games Parker Brothers already carried. While the firm also sold less expensive versions with separate boards and boxes for the utensils, the white box became one of the most recognized--and iconic--versions of the game, and it carried many of Darrow's original designs for both box, board, and utensils. White box editions, which Parker also called the "Number 9 Deluxe Edition," sold continuously throughout Monopoly's history. Today the standard Monopoly game is still housed in a white box resembling the first deluxe editions.
