Today, March 7, Is Credited As The Day That ‘Current’ Monopoly Was ‘Created’ By Charles Darrow.

by Anura Guruge



A quick Google will show that there are claims that March 7, 1933 was when Monopoly, as we know it today, came to be. I also happened to hear ‘this’ on the radio which what got me to go looking.

Yes, there is an extensive ‘History of Monopoly‘ on Wikipedia. That entry, however, does not mention March 7, 1933. So, I am a bit confused and skeptical.

But, I wanted to make sure that I at least got a ‘scratch’ in the sand, just in case.

So, I am posting this with a caveat. This might or might not be true!

IVA Richards — Isaac Vivian Alexander Richards, a man that has given me much joy, entertainment and inspiration. He was the man.

That great HOT Summer of 1979 and he missed the Lord’s Test (which I attended, on the Saturday), because he had ‘mono’, no doubt from kissing too many girls.

He has done much for cricket, his native Antigua, the ‘West Indies’ and the cricketing world in general.

I feel honored that I got to meet him, in person, a number of times.

Happy Birthday, Viv. Thanks for all the GREAT Times.

What a MAN!

Because of Viv, I still remember that glorious, Sun-soaked Summer of 1976.

I was at Lord’s for the 1979 World Cup and saw him bat
with Collis King.

Saw him, live, quite a bit in Somerset, Hampshire and at Lord’s.

Happy Birthday Viv.
