By 1933, a variation on “The Landlord’s Game” called Monopoly was the basis of the game sold by Parker Brothers, beginning on 6 February 1935.[6] Several people, mostly in the Midwestern United States and near the East Coast, contributed to the game’s design and evolution, and this is when the game’s design took on the 4×10 space-to-a-side layout and familiar cards were produced. The original version of the game in this format was based on streets in Atlantic City, New Jersey. By the 1970s, the false notion that the game had been created solely by Charles Darrow had become popular folklore: it was printed in the game’s instructions.
