The Forbes Magazine Collection has a monopoly on old hand-made "Monopoly" games. It passed all other bidders and collected the prizes at a Sotheby's auction in New York earlier this month, buying three properties for $11,500, $17,250 and $23,000 each. It already owned an early-round version for which it paid $71,500 at Sotheby's in December 1992."We thought the 'Monopoly' games were appropriate for the collection of a magazine about money," said Mary Ellen Sinko, a Forbes curator. "We will display them at the Forbes Magazine Galleries during the Christmas season."

Players operate using virtual tweezers or select a game, like when a stranded frog must be taken out of a patient's throat. Though it has more choices than the classic, the CD-ROM game gets old quickly.

No board game can boast the persistent popularity of Monopoly. Now in its seventh decade, the game has sold over 200 million copies in 80 countries and in 26 languages, including Arabic and Croatian. It is still the planet's best-selling board game.What's the enduring attraction? Presumably, people the world over are seduced by the game's naked invitation to indulge in one of the least appetizing human qualities: abject rapaciousness. The object of Monopoly is to acquire as much material wealth as possible and, in the process, to drive everyone else to ruin.
