By 1835 the new square was named after Nelson’s naval triumph, agreed by William IV, a great admirer of Nelson, in conversation with Sir Thomas Hardy, Nelson’s captain on HMS Victory and in whose arms the hero had died (“kiss me Hardy”). The joke inspired the satirical Cracked article, If Monopoly Was Honest, as well as a slew of internet memes. Its success was so noticeable, in fact, that word reached Parker Brothers, who invited Darrow to sell the rights to the game to them for full publication.Incorporating new themed boards and special editions keep the game relevant to new players constantly.
