Under The Boardwalk: The Monopoly Story (Amazon Prime)

Shows how the classic board game has become a worldwide cultural phenomenon, and follows the colorful players who come together to compete for the coveted title of Monopoly World Champion.

The classic game that shows who a person REALLY is. ;)

Good doc, shows the origins and how one of the first board games that most often had “house rules” made it a phenomenon. Didn’t matter the language or localities of the properties; the colors of the properties made in globally understood. The different strategies in the game, and then the tournament rules (there’s a “speed die” that is incorporated; personally not a fan of that).

90 minutes of nostalgia and education. I honestly felt it could have added a half hour for more in depth on the strategies, to explain to the average player, but that is nit-picking.
