Mediterranean Avenue, Baltic Avenue, Oriental Avenue, Vermont Avenue, Connecticut Avenue, Saint Charles Place, States Avenue, Virginia Avenue, Saint James Place, Tennessee Avenue, New York Avenue, Kentucky Avenue, Indiana Avenue, Illinois Avenue, Atlantic Avenue, Ventnor Avenue, Marvin Gardens, Pacific Avenue, North Carolina Avenue, Pennsylvania Avenue, Park Place, and Boardwalk are the street names in the classic American version of Monopoly.
In Monopoly, the streets are not the only properties. There are more properties that operate differently than the street properties. The first category is known as the railroads. Reading Railroad, Pennsylvania Railroad, B&O Railroad, and Short Line Railroad are their respective names. Additionally, there are two properties named Electric Company and Water Company.
In the board game Monopoly, the objective is to acquire enough properties to build a monopoly and then force your opponents to run out of money and property and declare bankruptcy. In the United Kingdom-released editions of the board game, the street names are entirely different.
Parker Brothers initially developed the Monopoly board game in 1933. Elizabeth Magie Phillips conceived of the game in 1903, when she sought to design a board game that would demonstrate why putting too much property in a monopoly is a terrible idea since it causes other essential enterprises to fail.
