Banking with helicopter.Edition: Monopoly Banking - Österreich Ausgabe, Ref.Nr. 060600114156
Publisher: Parker/Hasbro Deutschland - June 2006
Dimensions of the box: 39 x 27 x 6 cm
The game:
This set is from the collection of Roland Klose - D.

Probably there has never been published the so-called
70th anniversary edition published in Austria. The motto for that issue was all over the world "How would Monopoly look like should it have been invented today?". The result of an inquiry hold under a great number of people always resulted in a game board with completely new properties. Many countries called their edition "Here and Now" (USA - UK - CND), "Itt és Most" (HU), "Här & nu" (S), "Heute"(D), except for Holland that made it "Van Dam tot Dom" and France that just translated the motto into "Et si Monopoly était inventé aujoud'hui?"
These 2005 editions all show Mr. Monopoly proudly driving in his red car showing a licence plate "Mr. M70".

Shortly after this first issue the Banking edition was introduced, however still with Mr. Monopoly in his red car showing the licence plate "Mr. M70".

These above described versions haven't been published in all countries. In a number of European countries, amongst which Austria, only this 3rd version, issued since 2006, has been published. And so there is no relation anymore with Mr. Monopoly's 70th anniversary. But typical for this 3rd version is Mr. Monopoly is now travelling in ...... a red helicopter.

Typical for this edition is the card reader. Credit cards replace the banknotes (which can be ordered should you like to have them as yet).
The credit cards shown on the box however, are misleading. They suggest to be chipcards, which is not true. There is but some rise in the card of each player that is recognized by the card reader. All winnings and spendings are booked per player in the card reader unit.

Not only have all properties been updated, the amounts have been made "contemporary" as well. So you will not collect € 200 over Los, but € 2 million instead so a factor 10,000 more. However everything is of course correspondingly more expensive: The purchase price for a station became f.e. € 2 million. 

For all corresponding editions applies in addition:

The blue green houses are ellipse shaped and 6 mm in height, have no pointed roof and are stackable.

The red hotels have the same shape but are 31 mm in length. Since they are hollow they are very light and because of that not very practical. Neighter it is clear what the purpose of the stackability of these hotels can be.

The 6 metal tokens are: a skateboard - skeeler - racing car - a mobile - money bag and airplane.

Besides some countries has an additional token characteristic for the country.  However, this Austrian edition hasn't one.

The banker's tray, a dark blue plastic insert in the innerbox, has a.o. a storage space for the card reader and a number of slots to put the banker's property cards in. The double folded game board fits in the centre part between 2 raised sections of the tray.

The mortgage side of the property deeds is grey. On the grey backside of the Ereignis and Gemeinschafts cards is resp. a red question mark and a modern black chest, filled up with (yellow) gold rods. 

The streets and monuments in this edition are all from cities all over Austria and are from Los in order: 

Loisium - Langenlois
- Klangtum - St.Pölten - Bahnhof Linz - Minimundus - Klagenfurt - Congress Center - Villach - Casino - Velden - Im Gefängnis - Saltzwelten - Hallstatt - ORF Zentrum - Wien  - Design Center - Linz - Lentos Kunstmuseum - Linz - Flughafen Graz - Insel in der Mur - Graz - Rogner Bad - Blumau - Kunsthaus - Graz - Frei Parken - Hangar 7 - Salzburg - Museum der Moderne - Salzburg - Sportwelt Amade - Salzburg - Bahnhof Innsbruck - Europabrücke - Innsbruck - Bergisel Schanze - Innsbruck  - ARS Electronica Center/Linz - Kristallwelten - Wattens - Gehen Sie in das Gefängnis - Millennium Tower - Wien - T-Mobile Gebäude - Wien - Museumsquartier - Wien - Flughafen Wien - Römersteinbruch - St.Margarethen and Festspielhaus - Bregenz.

A sticker on the lid, inside the shrink-foil, is of the "Raiffeisen-Meine Bank", apparently the sponsor of this issue. An entry for a real Visa card goes with the set.

The price of this set amounted to € 45.50 on ebay January 2007.
