My comment is in ref to the Fads article and specifically, Monopoly.
When I was about 9 hrs old, I pulled a book off my parents shelf called ‘Find a need & fill it’ This book was extremely interesting as every page had the story of how various items were invented and came to market. My recollection from this book regarding Monopoly, I cannot remember the name, was a person during the depression developed a version of real estate and money to take the place of what they did not have and make a family game of it. They then brought it to a local toy store who was not interested but the developer of the game was given the leeway to actually demonstrate the game in the toy shops window. It started to take off and I do not remember exactly who bought the rights to it, it may have been a Fisher Price.
