Hunt for Monopoly no trivial pursuit

Got game?

The Oliver and District Heritage Society’s Museum and Archives is on the hunt, and it’s no trivial pursuit! Museum director Darryl MacKenzie is searching for “the oldest Monopoly game in town” as part of an upcoming exhibit.

“These may be gathering dust in a back closet somewhere, and may have more value at the museum at this time,” suggests MacKenzie. “I would really appreciate hearing from people who may have a set from before 1950, but 1950 to 1970 is passable.”

Do not pass go, do not collect $200, until you search your cupboards! Does your game look anything like the images shown here?  While a dusty Monopoly game may not be considered as valuable a property as  Park Place or Boardwalk, it will be an invaluable contribution to what sounds like an entertaining  exhibit.

Think you may just have the oldest game in Oliver? Please contact:
