Monopoly goes to war

More news of board games in World War II: “Before leaving for missions, British airmen were told that if they were captured, they should look for escape maps and kits in Monopoly boards and other games delivered by charity groups. They were told that ‘special edition’ Monopoly sets would be marked with a red dot on the free parking space… In addition to [a] concealed compass, tools and maps, real bank notes were hidden under the fake money.”
