“The most unrealistic thing about Monopoly is the free parking”

The board game Monopoly is sometimes said to be unrealistic. “The most unrealistic thing about Monopoly” was posted on Reddit—Funny on March 2, 2014, referring to the card “BANK ERROR IN YOUR FAVOR—COLLECT $200.”

Wikipedia: Monopoly (game)
Monopoly is a board game that originated in the United States in 1903 as a way to demonstrate that an economy which rewards wealth creation is better than one in which monopolists work under few constraints and to promote the economic theories of Henry George and in particular his ideas about taxation.

Monopoly was first published by Parker Brothers in 1935. Currently subtitled “The Fast-Dealing Property Trading Game”, the game is named after the economic concept of monopoly—the domination of a market by a single entity. It is now owned and produced by the American game and toy company Hasbro.
