Monopoly turns 75

Millions have cruised from Mediterranean Avenue to the Boardwalk in a tiny shoe in the years following Monopoly's birth at the height of the Depression. It celebrates its 75th anniversary this year.

 

The game is based on real places in Atlantic City, New Jersey, but has spawned official and unofficial variants based on many geographic locations, cultural events, sports teams, movies, animals and other social themes. Some people even make life-sized board pieces or design their own games. (Watch video)

 

We want to see your extensive memorabilia collection, or stylish Uncle Pennybags costume. Send us your photos and videos; we've got free parking for them.

 

For bonus points, make a video and tell us about your different items, or time-lapse a game. Do not pass Go, don't go directly to jail. Just go straight to iReport. You could be part of CNN's coverage.

 

Update: Check out what we did with your iReports! This assignment is now closed. Thank you for your submissions!
