Our nation's capital sees a lot of wheeling and dealing, but this Washington, D.C.-themed board game lets you buy it all up and try to make a profit. Based on another, very popular property-buying game, the familiar square board and metal tokens are all here, but you'll be picking up choice spots like the Smithsonian, the National Zoo, or even the White House in your bid for glory. Whether you live or work in D.C., or just love the idea of owning a big chunk of the most powerful city on earth, you'll find this a fun, fast-paced, and charming game.
In 1791, President George Washington hired Pierre Charles L'Enfant to create the layout of the federal city. L'Enfant focused on the area between Tiber Creek, now Constitution Avenue, and the Eastern Branch, also called the Anacostia River. L'Enfant surveyed the area in the spring of 1791 and created a plan for the city by the end of the year. This plan established the placement of the Capitol and President's House, now called the White House, and recommended the creation of the public promenade from the Capitol to the Potomac, the area we now call the National Mall.
