The Monopolists by Mary Pilon


(0 users)
The Monopolists: Obsession, Fury, and the Scandal Behind the World’s Favorite Board Game by Mary Pilon is being adapted into a film by Big Beach.

The Monopolists is a non-fiction book that provides a historical account as to how the Monopoly board game was invented. As with all good stories, there is betrayal, as the person who is credited with inventing the hugely successful board game is not the person who actually came up with the original idea.

There are lots of interesting facts and information about the origins of the board game written in an easy to read detective story style.


  • Big Beach have announced that they are producing a film based on The Monopolists. Read more…


No dates yet for when the Big Beach film adaptation of The Monopolists will be released. However it should not be confused with the Lionsgate film being based on the actual game.
