The monopoly board game goes all the way back to my childhood. I have some very fond memories of playing Monopoly with family members and friends. Many people have the same kind of memories from their childhood.
However, the Monopoly board game today is not how I remember it.
The Monopoly character, Rich Uncle Pennybags i.e Mr Monopoly used to have a monocle eyeglass but not anymore. I fully accept that characters can change over the years but if you do some research you won’t find any record of a monocle.
This doesn’t sit right with me because in my minds eye I can clearly see Mr Monopoly wearing a monocle. I have always known him to have a monocle and I am not the only one. Other people have the exact same memory too.
So how is that possible? How can different people all have the same memory that there is no record of. This is another example of the Mandela Effect.
Strong memories we have from our past are proving to be wrong today. Memories which sufferers of the Mandela Effect are certain about but the evidence doesn’t back up. Our reality is changing and it’s having a profound effect on many people.
I am certain that Mr Monopoly used to have a monocle. The character on all of the board games today doesn’t even look right without the monocle.
I have added a monocle to the bottom character and instantly he looks how I remember him. The strange thing is, there is no record of him ever having a monocle so why does he look so familiar when I add one?
Do you remember Mr Monopoly having a monocle? I’d like to hear your opinion on this Mandela Effect in the comments below,
