MONOPOLY

It's not merely a boardgame


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_board_game_monopoly

In 1903, the Georgist Lizzie Magie applied for a
patent on a game called The Landlord's Game with
the object of showing that rents enriched property
owners and impoverished tenants. She knew that
some people would find it hard to understand the
logic behind the idea, and she thought that if the
rent problem and the Georgist solution to it were
put into the concrete form of a game, it might be
easier to demonstrate. She was granted the patent
for the game in January 1904.
