The Money Game and How to Play it

£95.00

Product description

This is a curious admixture. There are 176 pages of exposition of the rules and tactics of the game and then, bound within the covers, are the various components required for playing. There are ten sets of ten cards for various enterprises - Brickfields to Wagons, and some preprinted money in One pound, Four pounds, Ten pounds and Fifty pound denominations. (The cards are all present; I haven't counted the money but there is a considerable number of notes present). This seems to be a sort of Monopoly although the sub title "A new instrument in economic education" and the 176 pages of instructions seem somewhat daunting. Angell was a Nobel Laureate (Peace prize 1933) and this was an attempt at popularising economics. It is in the direct line of the development of Monopoly.

Dent hardback with no DJ. The binding is good and the container at the rear is in good condition. No marks. 100 works cards, a couple of insurance cards, forms for recording sales and an undetermined number of money tokens

An interesting historical educational toy.
