Rich Uncle Pennybags is the mascot of the game Monopoly. He is depicted as a portly old man with a moustache who wears a morning suit with a bowtie and top hat. In large parts of the world he is known, additionally or exclusively, as the Monopoly Man, or Mr. Monopoly. He also appears in the related games Advance to Boardwalk, Free Parking, Don't Go to Jail, Monopoly City, Monopoly Junior, and Monopoly Deal.

After more than 50 years, Rich Uncle Pennybags has finally decided to tell the world everything he knows about the history. Actually, the gimmick of the book is that it is actually Mr. Monopoly who is telling the book to Orbanes

Comments to eBook The Monopoly Companion

This is a fun, well written and organized little guide. It is written in a 'cute' tone, with 'Mr. Monopoly' giving you a tour of the game and going through a mock game to show you 'his' strategies. Not all may like this novelty of an approach, but I think it is cleverly done, and it is effective in painlessly teaching elements of the game. This companion guide gives you all of the rules of the game, which may not seem like much, but if you are playing the game seriously, thorough knowledge of the rules is a must. It has numerous useful statistics, like frequency of landing on certain properties, the cost of building up color groups, what percentage of your investment you can expect to recover in an opponent's trip around the board, etc. There is quite interesting background on the game, and on Atlantic City itself. There are ideas for having fun Monopoly parties, and some recipes to make for those parties. Where the guide may fall short is in the area of advanced play tips and strategies. There are some basic tips throughout, which for most people will suffice to improve their play enough to have a big advantage over more casual players. But if you want more advanced tournament strategy, look elsewhere. For example, Ken Koury's book is much better in this regard. But for many, this clever and pleasant little guide will be more than enough to be 'King of the Hill' of their games with family and friends.

Everyone has a Monopoly set somewhere at home. If you're like me your set of instructions disappeared long ago and was only a sheet of paper with small font at best anyway. This book explains all the rules in great detail. I never knew there was a limit on the number of houses and hotels and that when there aren't enough green houses you couldn't just fork out the monetary value for a hotel. The age old debate of does free parking collect all the taxes and whoever lands on it gets the money is answered as well. The answer is no by the way. This is a great handy guide for any arguments about the rules.

Even if you already know all of the rules this is still a pretty good purchase. Inside is a heap of trivia such as the names of all the characters on the board and cards, the fact that Parker Bros prints 50 billion dollars of Monopoly money each year and the fact that on average each player makes about $175 dollars around the board. A comparison of the Monopoly properties and what those streets are actually like in the real Atlantic City both when the game was invented and today is very interesting reading along with the predecessors to Monopoly and other historical information. There are also tips on how to play from Mr Monopoly including which are the best properties to purchase. This is an excellent little book for anyone who enjoys playing the best board game ever invented.

I believe that if you looked at all the brand name games out there (therefore taking non-brand name games like chess, checkers and backgammon), there is no game out there more popular than Monopoly. Although it may be popular for over seventy years, there have been very few books about it. Philip Orbanes has written one of the few exceptions, The Monopoly Companion.

Actually, the gimmick of the book is that it is actually Mr. Monopoly who is telling the book to Orbanes. Mr. Monopoly is the wealthy gentleman who appears in the Monopoly logo as well as several Chance and Community Chest cards; I always knew him as Rich Uncle Pennybags, but apparently Parker Brothers changed the name recently. And though the first part of the book presents a history of the game, somehow this old name is omitted completely.

After the history, there is an explanation of the rules of the game. There are official rules and then there are the house rules that we all use to tweak the game, probably most commonly by placing money on the Free Parking spot. After the rules, we get to the heart of the book: a breakdown of all the properties and their relative values and some strategies. The value of a particular monopoly (a color group, the railroads or the utilities) are based on several factors including cost of acquisition, how frequently they are landed on, how expensive they are to develop and how quickly they pay back in rent the money spent on them. Another factor is what point the game is at: a monopoly may be more valuable earlier in the game than later.

After these sections, the book goes into Monopoly parties and tournaments and even gives the reader a quiz. Overall, this is an interesting book but not great. For one thing, the Mr. Monopoly gimmick wears thin rather quickly. Also, playing Monopoly is more fun than reading about others playing it, so the tournament narratives are just so-so. It is the middle of the book that redeems the book, however, giving insights that may have not occurred to many players. If you're a fan of Monopoly, this book is a reasonably good and inexpensive acquisition; even with its flaws, it offers enough of value to merit a low four stars.
