Monopoly Guy

Have you ever wondered...

What's the name of the Monopoly Guy?

Well, you're not alone. Monopoly is the most popular board game in the world and millions of people have played it but most refer to the Monopoly Guy as well... The Monopoly Guy.

Since 1999, during a marketing effort by Hasbro he was officially renamed Mr. Monopoly. But the character first started appearing on Chance and Community Chest cards way back in 1936. Back then he went by the name of Rich Uncle Pennybags.

Back in 1988, when The MONOPOLY Companion: The Players' Guide was published, it was stated that his full name is Milburn Pennybags.

So there you have it. Next time you're playing Monopoly and someone wonders what's the name of the Monopoly Guy, now you've got a few factoids to share.
