History

This board game is based on The Landlord’s Game, the predecessor to what you may recognize as today’s Monopoly. While the game play is similar to Monopoly, Landlord takes us back to the impulse behind the The original Landlord’s Game, which aimed to help foreground social inequaltity and help players learn that by working together, everybody benefits. While Monopoly is premised on a level playing field—with each player starting out with the same resources and opportunities, Landlord aims to more accurately reflect the inequalities inherent in contemporary capitalism.
