Collecting Monopoly Games - Self Made Games

Self Made Games

Of course the Landlord's Games have to be mentioned here in the first place. But these, mainly in the east part of America handmade games in the Lizzie Magie age (ca. 1900 - 1930) are so rare. Thesedays, it is seen that Lizzie Magie is the original inventor of Monopoly, it was just that Charles Darrow patented it first.

In 1936 Elmer Fisher during his stay in a hospital made an all wood Monopoly of Detroit city. About the beginning of WW II the Amsterdam inhabitant Mr.Horn made a Monopoly game with the streets of his own town. The Dutchman Theo Schermers, the monopolist under the avid collectors, lives in a town called Hardinxveld-Giessendam, so it is obvious there exsists a game of his home town.

A maxi-game of 1.36 x 1.36 m of the Dutch city Eindhoven was made in 1976 by the members of the Monopoly club "The Bankers&]. This game was shown for the first time at the Dutch Monopoly Championship in Eindhoven in june 1992. Jean François Dias got Metropoly for his 45th birthday which is a game made by 3 friends in honour of the Paris Metro 100th year anniversary.
