I read an article about properties Queen Elizabeth II, the Crown, own. Many of the Monopoly board names cropped up.

The history of Monopoly is interesting and even a bit contentious (the Hasbro site claims that Charles Darrow invented the game, but other sites claim that Darrow got the idea from a woman, Elizabeth Magie, a board game designer who invented something called The Landlord's Game).

I'm just amazed at how many versions there are (actually, I have no idea how many versions there are, but it seems as if new ones pop up every day).
