Original Monopoly Board Game sold for £90,000 ($144,900)
The earliest ever version of the board game Monopoly has sold for a whopping £90,000 ($144,900). The set was one of 5,000 made in 1933 by Charles Darrow, the purported inventor of Monopoly, and is the only one to have survived to this day.
The dog-eared set is made out of a piece of oilcloth and is in the form of the original circular shape that is 33 inches in diameter.
