In 2010 C4 did a poll to find the best toys of all time. They also listed games in this section. As a result, Monopoly came in second after LEGO. If Games had a Top 100 all to themselves, Monopoly would have come out top. Which do you think is the best game of all time?
For clarification, a game is something you play, while a toy is something you play with, if that makes sense. E.G. a games console would be a toy, but a video game would be a game. Games tend to have a goal.
The above! Monopoly & Lego. I received my very 1st Monopoly game at the end of 1959. We still have it now, but it’s not in the very good condition it was back then! It was in a beautiful gold box, which is rather tatted now. When the tokens started to go missing, we used the little plastic toys from the cereal packets. I think we still have a couple of the original tokens left. This was given to me by my 2 cousins who’d finished playing with it. They are 6 & 11 years older than me. i don’t think i ever played with Lego, but my brother might have.
And then Scrabble came along. I loved that. My dad would give me a handicap of 30!
