Description Edit | History

After purchasing the rights to Finance from Knapp Electric in 1935, Parker changed the game to eliminate any similarities to Monopoly, and created the "Finance Game Company" specifically to sell the modified game.
Once Charles Darrow's patent for Monopoly was approved, Parker Brothers changed Finance even further and began selling it under their own name, and the "Finance Game Company" was never heard from again.
