The ultimate negotiation game, Monopoly, is currently published by Hasbro. Upon their turn, each player will roll two six-sided dice as they navigate around the board game, buying property or paying rent to another player. Monopoly is derived from The Landlord’s Game, created in 1903 as a way to demonstrate that an economy that rewards wealth creation is better than one in which monopolists work under constraints.
