The Creator of Monopoly Stole the Idea from a Woman

Charles Darrow, the man credited with creating the game Monopoly, was recently discovered to have stolen the game from a woman named Lizzie Magie. She had patented a game called "Landlord's Game" which actually decried the evils of monopolies. Darrow got the game from some Quaker friends and sold it to Parker Brothers as his own.

What is Sussle?

Sussle is the first, open visual encyclopedia. Anyone can use it.

What's a visual encylopedia?

It has beautiful images and viral videos that are way more fun than reading all the text in traditional encyclopedias.

5 reasons you should add your own images and videos:

  1. If you found Sussle interesting, then give back by adding something interesting for others.
  2. Help others learn in a fun way.
  3. Make someone else interested in this topic laugh or say wow!
  4. Become internet-famous as people like and share your post.
  5. It's super easy, so it won't take more than a minute.
