The Secret History of Monopoly

Monopoly - it ruins families, it tears friendships apart. It is played by everyone from Jerry Hall and Mick ­Jagger to Carmela and Tony Soprano. In 1959 Fidel Castro ordered the destruction of every Monopoly set in Cuba. And everything you know about the game is wrong. Umapagan Ampikaipakan speaks to author and journalist Mary Pilon about the strange and - at times tragic - story of the evolution of the world’s favourite board game.
