Get Board. Get Broke. Get Creative.

Charles Brace Darrow

A heater salesman who lost his job during the Great Depression, Darrow is known for introducing the world to the board game Monopoly. For years there was dispute over who was the actual inventor.

Darrow sold the concept to Parker Brothers. It was an evolution from The Landlord's Game which was invented by Elizabeth Magie Phillips. Credit should also go to Charles Todd who introduced the game to Darrow.

Monopoly is one of the most popular board games in history and it was launched during one of the worst economic times ever.

If necessity is the mother of invention, perhaps it’s time we got resourceful.

Maybe we turn off the news and focus on solutions. It makes you wonder what ideas may be brewing right now that will emerge from this time.

What are you working on?
What have you always wanted to try?
