The original name of Monopoly was first patented in 1904 as The Landlord's Game. Originally the object of the games designer was to show that rents enriched property owners and impoverished tenants. Even though our game has a similar message, it is very different. We focus on business while that game focused on property ownership. The biggest and most obvious difference is that Monopoly is a board game, and Capitalism, USA is a card game. I have had a lot of healthy debate on social networks concerning the similarities in the game--the largest being they are both projecting a social commentary on the ideas of Capitalism.
