Annual sales of 200,000 units, according to an French-language Air Le Mag article (March, 2009). Interestingly, the article draws a direct comparison to Trivial Pursuit which it says has annual sales of 250,000 units - an estimate that seems quite low (although it could be referring solely to the base edition). Reported on BoardGameNews.com.

First "edition": a few hundreds copies.

Magie's game has not ever really been published: she handmade a few hundreds copies sold to friends and to a few shops in Maryland and Eastern Pennsylvania.

THE GAME BECOME MONOPOLY

In the '10s and '20s, Magie frequented Quacker and achademic circles where the game slowly spread as handmade copies, that people started gradually to modify and enhance.


One copy went into the hands of Darrow, who sold the idea as Monopoly.

Source: "Monopoly - The True Story" by Dan Glimne, appeared on GiocAreA Magazine (alas in Italian) in 1998. Here the text:

http://www.goblins.net/modules.php?name=News&file=article&th...

(English in this post is mine - a translation into English of my translation into Italian of his original article as sent to the magazine).
