Interesting about Monopoly in Cuba....
Lovers of Monopoly in Cuba… Do not pass “GO.” Do not collect $200. Upon taking power in 1959, Fidel Castro banned the board game “Monopoly” and decreed that every set be destroyed. Apparently, the game had a strong following in Cuba but he perceived it as the pure embodiment of capitalism. Parker Brothers was unable to estimate how many games were sold to Cuba at the time of the incident. The fact that the Cuban government heavily sanctions its citizens unfortunately isn’t news. Until 2008, Cubans weren’t even allowed to own a computer.
