Geocache Description:


This cache is not part of the "Corporate Ca$he - Monopoly Challenge!", however it stands as a bonus mystery container just for fun in addition to your quest through Westchester Avenue.

"Rich Uncle Pennybags" is that jolly old man in a top hat who serves as the mascot for Monopoly. It's likely he played many jokes in his hay-day, I mean, just look at him! Beyond the 1930's getup, who is he really? Therein lies the mystery...

In 1933, he appeared on the box of a Parker Brother's game titled "Rich Uncle"
In 1936, he appeared on the Community Chest and Chance cards of Monopoly
In 1988, author Philip Orbanes named him "Milburn Pennybags"
In 1999 he became christened as "Mr. Monopoly"

Mr. Monopoly draws influence from Albert Richardson (Parker Brothers' first traveling salesman), the character of "Little Esky" from Esquire magazine, and the stature of financier/banker J. P. Morgan. He also has a family, consisting of a wife named Madge, a niece and nephew named Sandy and Andy, respectively, along with a second newphew named Randy. He was even titled as the sixth richest fictional character in the 2006 Forbes Fictional 15 list! What a guy!

So you think you've got it all figured out? Do you know what you're in for when you grab this cache? After completing the "Corporate Ca$he" series, are you in fact Rich Uncle Pennybags with all those caches under your belt? Well let's just say what you find may surprise you in the end!
