Gold And Jewel-Encrusted Monopoly Game Heads To Wall Street

A gold and jewel bedazzled version of Monopoly worth $2 million is heading to Wall Street this Friday. That’s not a metaphor.

Crafted by master jeweler Sidney Mobell and 22 years in the making, the set features dice with 42-cut diamonds and a photo-etched 18k gold board.

The set will be on display at the Museum of American Finance staring Friday. The museum is also hosting a Monopoly tournament to celebrate the unveiling. The under 18’s play from 10:15-12, and the adults from 1-3. Presumably they split up the groups because there are some people in the vicinity who have more experience running monopolies and they don’t want there to be an unfair advantage over the kids.
