Board game was Monopoly and the copyright on that game was filed on this day in 1935.

Monopoly is a board game currently published by Hasbro, the goal of the game is straight-forward, get the most money and most property and put your competition out of business. Of course, Monopoly games can go on for hours.

There are also many collectors’ editions of the board game, which take the traditional properties and pieces and replace them around whatever theme that may be an animated series, a movie, a book, even sports teams.

Late last year, in the regular Monopoly game, the iron piece was retired and replaced with a cat.
