Continuing our new and regular feature here at Historical Fiction.  

Each Friday we will publish an historical fact based upon the date. Each fact will be accompanied by a book(s) title and perhaps a review or other snippet.

7th February 1935 ~
The popular and classic board game, Monopoly was invented this day in 1935. The book to accompany today's fact is Do Not Pass Go by Tim Moore

Anyone for Monopoly?
