Description Edit | History

The Fascinating Game of Finance by Knapp Electric Inc (1932). This was the company who sold the rights for their game to Parker Brothers, who were systematically buying up the rights to any pre-existing game that might pose competition or a legal challenge to Monopoly. Parker Brothers paid Knapp Electric $10,000 dollars for the rights to Finance. A considerable sum for the 1930's, but a far cry from the many millions Parker Brothers would make off of Monopoly.
This game used poker chips as currency instead of the paper money you find in Monopoly games today, but there were some money cards included in case you were hosting a large game and ran out of chips. The blue chips represented $100, yellow chips represented $200, red chips $5 and white chips were $1.
