In Trivial Pursuit of Monopoly

Did you know that the board game Monopoly went through many names changes including, The Landlord's Game, Brer Fox an' Brer Rabbit, Finance and Auction Monopoly before it's current name was decided?

And did you know that the original patent for Monopoly was submitted in 1904 by Lizzie Magie and looked just like this?


And did you know that during World War II the dice in the British version of Monopoly were replaced by a spinner due to a lack of whatever material it is dice are made of?

Also did you know that there are hundreds of different versions and themes of Monopoly including Lord of the Rings Monopoly, Muppets Monopoly, Simpsons Monopoly, SpongeBob SquarePants Monopoly and Family Guy Monopoly?

And surely you knew that the longest game of Monopoly played upside down on a ceiling was 36 hours, right?

No? Well then. Maybe Wikipedia can help.
