While news of a potential Settlers of Catan movie treatment made a big splash in recent days, another classic board game is also making its way into the headlines. Former Wall Street Journal writer Mary Pilon published The Monopolists: Obsession, Fury, and the Scandal Behind the World's Favorite Board Game just last week. The book is a fascinating work that sets the record straight, tracing the true and at times complicated origins of the game back to more than a century ago. Love it or hate it, Pilon’s look at one of the world’s most famous game titles appears a worthy read for gamers everywhere. You can read more about the book here.
