Derived from another board game from the early 1900's, the game of Monopoly has existed in one form or another since being published by Parker Brothers in 1935. The modern version of Monopoly has not changed much since it was first published, featuring more or less the same gameplay to when it was first introduced, although prices and locations have been updated to stay relevant. The two most popular versions of the game are based on London and New York locations, although many different regional editions have been released more recently, as well as many special editions of the game based on fictional locations from popular franchises such as Star Wars. Current publishers of the game, Hasbro, have also released several updated versions of the game featuring additional gameplay elements such as an electronic banker, although the same core gameplay still remains the same. In honour of the popular family favourite, here's a selection of Displate artwork by artist Design Turnpike, featuring some of the classic board game artwork!
The Dark Souls series is a spiritual successor to PS3 exclusive, Demon's Souls, and is widely renowned for being one of the most challenging series of games ever made, with countless online memes based on the relative difficulty of the franchise. The Dark Souls trilogy started in 2011 with the titular Dark Souls, and was as instant hit, despite having a minimalistic plot. Despite being set in the same universe, the following games in the series do not directly follow storyline elements, but do share the same overall gameplay mechanics with the first. All games in the series have achieved relatively high aggregate scores and favourable reviews, with the difficulty factor often stated as the primary reason why the games did not score higher. To celebrate this popular franchise, here's a selection of Displate artwork featuring characters from the series, by artist Psycho Schroom!

My Hero Academia is a hugely popular Japanese Anime TV series based on the Manga of the same name (also known as Boku no Hīrō Akademia in Japanese romanization), and focuses around a young boy called Izuku Midoriya who was born without any superpowers into a world where having such powers is considered the sociological norm. The animated series is a comedy adventure, and often plays on several common superhero stereotypes. Drawing similarities with the classic tale of Pinocchio, Izuku dreams of being the one thing he's not - a superhero. Izuku meets the world's greatest superhero, All Might (real name Toshinori Yagi), who believes that Izuku has what it takes to become a mighty superhero, and shares some of his powers with the high school student so that he would no longer be bullied by his classmates. The Manga and Anime are both popular overseas as well as in Japan, having gained a large cult following in the West, and is fast growing to be as popular as other Japanese Anime series such as Dragon Ball, Naruto, Bleach, and One Piece! Here's a selection of Displate artwork based on several of the main characters from the popular Japanese animated series!

The humble LEGO brick has recently celebrated its 60th birthday, having been first patented back in January 1958 by Godtfred Kirk Christiansen, son of Danish carpenter Ole Kirk Christiansen who founded the LEGO brand several decades earlier. Godtfred's father had previously created the LEGO company in order to manufacture wooden toys for children prior to WWII, but started experimenting with creating construction toys after the war in order to encourage a new generation to "build up". Godtfred took over the company from his father in the mid-50's, and started experimenting with new plastic materials in order to create a durable construction toy which was able to interlock. He finally decided upon ABS, and later patented his unique design which featured hollow tubes in order to allow bricks to "stick" together! The classic LEGO brick is now an iconic design that has inspired many generations of children to use their imaginations. The LEGO Group is still a family-run business, and is a household name worldwide! LEGO currently holds many accolades, such as the world's number one manufacturer of rubber tyres, as well as being the number one toy manufacturer, having overtaken Hasbro and Mattel! It is hard to deny the cultural impact that LEGO has had, especially in recent years having branched out into creating movies and video games! To celebrate the anniversary of the LEGO brick, here's a selection of Displate artwork by artist Xavier Vieiera, featuring several of LEGO's most iconic patent designs!

The films have become notorious for being an excuse to blow stuff up and make cool things look even cooler, even if the overall storylines are a little far-fetched at times!

Rick And Morty is currently rumoured to be on a brief hiatus, meaning that we probably won't see new Season 4 episodes until 2019, giving Adult Swim plenty of time to bring the series into the mainstream by having the first three seasons of the show on constant rotation.

The overall design of the six chess pieces has not changed much since the original inception of the game, although the powers given to each piece has evolved over time, acquiring their current abilities in Spain during latter half of the 15th century. The rules of the game were standardised during the 19th century, which also included advanced moves such as "Castling" and "En Passant". Artist Michael Little has taken a centuries-old game and given it a steampunk spin, with this matching set of steampunk-inspired chess pieces. This Displate set takes the classic pieces - Pawn, Rook, Knight, Bishop, Queen, and King - and presents them as mobile metal characters on tricycles! This fantastic set would look great in a public space or in a games room or library!
