How British Soldiers Used The Game ‘Monopoly’ To Escape Nazi Prison Camps In WWII
FOR MORE THAN A CENTURY, ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR BOARD GAMES IN THE WORLD HAS BEEN, UNDOUBTEDLY, THE REAL ESTATE-INSPIRED MONOPOLY. THOUGH IT ROSE TO POPULARITY AFTER THE PARKER BROTHERS RELEASED IT IN THE 1930S, THE SUCCESSFUL GAME WAS ACTUALLY INVENTED BY A WOMAN NAMED ELIZABETH MAGIE, AND IT WAS ORIGINALLY DUBBED “THE LANDLORD’S GAME.”
WHAT NEITHER MAGIE NOR PARKER BROTHERS COULD HAVE PREDICTED, HOWEVER, WAS HOW CRITICAL A ROLE THE GAME WOULD PLAY FOR SOLDIERS IN WORLD WAR II. FAR FROM JUST A WAY TO PASS THE TIME, MONOPOLY WAS UTILIZED FOR A MORE SECRETIVE—AND BRILLIANT—REASON BY BRITISH POWS IN GERMAN PRISON CAMPS.

Stop putting the trash music in the video, it just ruins it.
