Super Add-Ons Monopoly Version Game Board

board game

In the mid 1990s, David Baffa-Negrini, Bob Wilkins, and David Hall tried to market a game they'd developed to toy and game producer Hasbro. They were not professional game designers but they understood both games and the game industry. Their design was a Monopoly "add-on," an accessory game and board that sat inside Monopoly's track and added interest to an ordinary Monopoly match. "Monopoly Super Add-On" speeded up the game as well. Hasbro liked their game, but chose not to publish it. Four years later, Hasbro summoned the team and their product yet again, only to refuse it once more. Undaunted, the men finally decided to manufacture and sell the game themselves, doing business as RAD Games. When they showed their add-on at ToyFair in the late 1990s, Hasbro finally did show interest, and soon afterward brought lawsuit against them. A short two weeks later, the judge found RAD Games not guilty and explained to Hasbro that the idea was good, copyrights were not being infringed, and they should consider working with RAD Games.
