Considering the number of this game it is likely that it is issued in the same
period as the Anti .. jeu – game – spel – spiel ® described
hereafter! Apparently Jack Monschouwer, the owner of the then publishing
house Hanky Panky Toys, had specialized in Monopoly like games, because in this
game also the acquiring of properties (gasstations) is involved, at which
restaurants (white) and motels (red)
can be built.
He also used to make them European Games, because also here
the Service- and All-Risk-cards (comparable with Chance and
Community Chest cards) are in 4 languages viz.: German, Dutch,
English and French. When you draw a Service card you are to pay gas. Some of the
All-Risk-cards say for example: "You buy a new car - pay 5000 euro in
addition" and "You win first prize (?) in Car Rally 1500
From Start on (where you receive 1600 euro) the gasstations are always in
the West and East side of the following cities: Berlin - Paris - London -
Kopenhagen - Luxembourg - Bern - Milano - Brussels - Amsterdam and Vienna. In
the mid of each side is a gas company, resp.: Shell - Chevron - Esso and
Furthermore there are the 2 spaces Car Repair and Taxi, however at other places
than the Water Works and Electric Company.
The tokens consist of 4
plastic passenger cars and 2 petrol cars. The money consists of Euro
banknotes with the values of 10 - 25 - 100 - 1000 and 5000.
The back of the game board is green.

This game dates from the short period it was forbidden to Ralph Anspach to use
the name Anti-Monopoly. That is why this "fighter against the Charles
Darrow concoction" in America had to take some 40,000 sets of Anti-Monopoly
back from the market. He continued with the same game under the name Anti.
The basic idea of the game is to end off the monopolistic practises of
the 3-company-combinations of the game board. This is also called Trustbusting so the players are called trustbusters. The winning
trustbuster is the one who ends with the largest number of social-credit
points and euro's.
There 3 kinds of company combinations:
Oligopoly-combination which is marked by 1 accusation circle O
Trust-combination which is marked by 2 accusation circles OO
Monopoly-combination which is marked by 3 accusation circles OOO
"Accusing" is done by placing a small, round chip of the same color
as your token on such a circle. When all accusation circles of 1 combination are
covered the monopolistic practises of that combination have been ended. An
accusation chip can be bought for 100 Euro from the "Budget-Commisioner".
If the B-C lends money to a player he provides a Social-Credit card as an
There are 36 postbox cards, who give favourable or unfavourable news
"Student volunteers work in your office. You may do your next
accusation free of charge."
"Because of political pressure your anti trust labor is negatively
effected. Remove one of your
accusation chips from the board without
compensation by the Budget-Commisioner."
Players who land on Court have not to throw double afterwards, because
then "they have been found guilty of insult of the court" for what
reason they have to pay 50 Euro.
This game can be played in 3 different ways:
Basic game: In this way the course of the game is ruled by
Low-budget game: The trustbusters start with less money.
Trade game: Here the trustbusters are allowed to swap accusations.
The back side of the game board is blue.

Dimensions of the box: 27.3 x 40.1 cm
The aim of this game is to collect as many oil concessions as possible and to
obtain with that the highest possible profit from the oil producing countries.
Despite the maker of this game calls it a "dice game" it has all the
elements of the well-known Monopoly game.
Start/Landung (= airport of Geneve-Switserland) lies on the midfield and one has to play
counter-clockwise. 27 countries are spread over
the strong game board, each of them having 1 oilconsession to give away.
From the airport onwards the 37 spaces are respectivily:
Venezuela - Argentinien
- Ekuador - USA
- K -Telex - Mexiko
- Gehen Sie zum Internationalen Gerichtshof - Aufanken/Zahlen Sie $ 100,000 - Indonesien
- Brunei Mal - Australien
- China - UDSSR
- Norwegen - Telex - OPEC Konferenz -
Libyen - Algeri
- Nigeria - Gabun
- Falkenjagd in
der Wüste - Internationaler Gerichtshof - Telex - Irak
- Kuwait - Ägypten
- Schardscha - Dubai
- Abu Dhabi - Nochmal würfeln - Gehen Sie
zum Internationalen Gerichtshof - Oman -
Telex -Bahrain - Katar
- Iran - Vermisst
in der Wüste and Saudi Arabien.
Subject to the number of players the consessions are to be distributed amongst
them at the start of the game; the remainder must be sold.
The oilmagnates always move over the board by plane.
Over or on Start you receive P$ 500,000.
The 7 tokens are nice
goldcolored "emblems on a base" with the picture of resp. a Sheik,
oil drums, dromedary, oil storage tanks, swards, plane and tanker.
consists of clumsy tiny (45 x 75 mm) but good looking Petrodollar
banknotes from the Worldbank. In the centre is a circle with a dromedary of
course and the text "In oil we trust". The denominations are
resp. P$1.000 - 5.000
- 10.000 - 20.000
- 50.000 - 100.000
Instead of Chance and Community
Chest cards are here 25 Telex cards with instructions like:
The radar installation of your private jet has broken down. You have to
omit 1 turn.
You have to appear for the International Court of Justice in The Hague.
Heavy storm: On all oil-rigs important repairs have to be done. Pay P$
100,000 for each oil-rig.
The card "Your political influence has helped to prove your innocence.
Keep this card" correspond consequently with "Get out of Jail free". The 2
spaces on the board are:
"Falconry in the desert"
"Missed in the desert"
They have effect on the game.
This set was bought in 1996.

Dimensions of the box: 26.4 x 50.2 cm
Here again the basic idea of the game is to prevent monopoly building of
companies in order to maintain the foundation of free economy with its
competitors. So the aim is to blow up monopolies, at which the players are Anti-Monopolists.
This version correspond very much with the earlier described "Bust~the~Trust!"
Game, ref.212, but still there are some differences, viz.:
not all companies are the same. So Chrystal auto (=Chrysler?) is
here Fauweh (=VW?) and Uni food became Hamburger AG.
Because all the accusation chips are yellow
each player who was
assigned a combination gets a kind of title deed.
The back of the game board is red.
The creaseof the board runs parallel to the first side of the game.
There is only text on the corner spaces.
The banknotes have no currency.
The 6 tokens are hollow, plastic aggravation pawns.
II, ref. 2150/5
"Das ganz andere Spiel"
Publisher: ASS - Leinfelden - 1984
Dimensions of the box: 26.5 x 50 cm
The cover says strikingly "This game was invented by Prof.Ralph Anspach
and was manufactured by ASS, not by Parker-Brothers!"
Anti-Monopoly II is an improved version of the original game the Atlantic City
Quakers ever called monopoly. Prof. Ralph Anspach invented it and prof. Irvin
Hentzel did the mathematics.
In this game players follow either the rules for monopoly or those for competition
(= Wettbewerb), fixed at the start of the game. Competitors
charge fair rents, build as soon as they own a property, place 4 houses
at the most, after which they build a hotel
and occasionally go to Price War. On the other hand however "Monopolists"
monopoly-high rents from their poor tenants, build only after they have at least
2 streets of one color, restrict supply by putting only 3 houses on their
properties, after which they also are allowed to build a hotel
and occasionally go to prison.
The good guys are the small entrepreneurs and the bad guys are the
monopolists. Since players do not play by the same rules, fairness is achieved
by a patented technique of equalizing the win probabilities.
Anti-Monopoly II requires more sophistication and strategic thinking than Monopoly because competitors make more money than monopolists in the beginning
of the game but monopolists can catch up later, especially if competitors don't
watch their money. This eliminates a weakness in the other game where one often
knows in the beginning who is going to win, even though the game can drag on for
a long time. Rightly this game is for players as from 10 years.
It is a German game with mainly streets from 4 German cities, but
also from others countries. The cities are respectively Hamburg, München,
Berlin, Paris, Zürich, Wien, London and Frankfurt.
De colors of the streets are from Start: light
lilac, dark green,
light brown and red.
Electric Works =
Eurostrom en Water Works = Eurogas Gesellschaft.
In the middle of each side of
this blue board you'll find respectively Eurotransport
Gesellschaft, Europabus Gesellschaft, Euroflug Gesellschaft
Instead of Chance and Community Chest cards are 25 Wettbewerber and 25 Monopolist
cards. In both cases it are numbered, white cards with funny illustrations and
texts like: "You have won the lawsuit against a Monopolist. Even after
the paying your lawyers terrible high fee, you are still ahead".And for
both: "Go to the Reeperbahn".
Unlike the Dutch version of this game (see
ref.15880) the currency is
not the Euro but undefined. On the properties just houses and hotels are
to be built, but the Wettbewerber pays but half the rent.
The tokens are 6 aggravation pawns of wood.

Dimensions of the box: 26 x 50.6 cm
The subtitle of this game says "Let's go into the world of high investments
and hotel empires" while the "Glückskarten" show an
illustration of Uncle Pennybags on the back. This are sufficient reasons to add
this game, in 1985 issued by Parker Bros., to the collection of Monopoly like
The idea however differs importantly from Monopoly: The board is
oblong: 22.5 x 89 cm and contains 4 colored groups of 5 spaces each, of which
the maximum of 4 players have to collect the properties cards.
The 4 tokens
are respectively: Pram - Roller

are 3 dice, one of them being white and provided with a G (Glück), W
and one of the colors of each of the 4 spaces on the other 4 sides. Furthermore
are 80 hotel units, 20 per color of the tokens. Dependent on the number
of players each player gets 14 to 20 hotels. He is to build these, subject to
the number of pips thrown, on spaces at choice. The Glückskarten (Fortune
cards) will help. The token is always put on the space that relates to the total
of the property cards the player has in possession. Player can no longer take
part when he has no more hotels. Winner is of course the one who finally has
The cover shows a "years twenties"-like illustration of a hotel
entrance with a Rolls Royce-like car. The white bottom of the box shows the long

Again a different idea of the Anti-Monopoly game that can be played as
from 12 years.
The bottom of the box says:
"Prof.Dr.Ralph Anspach, feighter against monopolies and inventor of
Anti-Monopoly and Anti-Monopoly II has discovered a new field in which
monopolies set the tone:
Today (he poses end of the eighties) the democratic thinking man is faced
with nuclear monopolies and arms race. However it is not right to pose that one
cannot do something about it. Ralph Anspach has converted his ideas into a game
in order to transform that thought. To prevent destruction player has
simultaniously to pursue his own targets as well co-operate with the other
players to maintain peace! Each of the 2 to 6 players represents a nuclear
The aim of the game is to maintain world peace and to save earth from
falling by a nuclear war. The common target of the players is to prevent the
atom bomb. An explosion of the atom bomb is at the end of the "Arms spiral",
representing the automatism of the arms race. When the "Bomb" arrives
the end of the Arms spiral (in the centre of the game board) world peace
is over and everyone has lost! However, if all players work together in such a
way that 1 reaches the space "Weltfrienden" (World Peace, right
from Start) earlier, then the arms race is over. All players have won and the
one who has contributed the most to maintain world peace is declared winner.
The specialty of this game is the constant conflict players are in: each one can
pursue his personal selfish target to come to a victory, but this selfishness
promotes the arms race. The end is bound to happen. Co-operation is necessary!
But how much co-operation and how much selfishness? May only one be selfish or
may they all? Experience these conflicts yourself!"
And so you can do on a game board that has no streets. On 3 of the 4 sides
of the board you can "turn circles", subject to the instructions you
get on the way. If you are having a lucky streak at your turn you may receive
many millions of dollars, but if it is going against you you may cause the bomb
going 1 or more steps forward! (The cashier also moves the bomb.)
Aktion cards are to be drawn when you land on a similar space. This are a
kind of Chance cards. When you land on one of the red
Krise spaces you are to open one of your 5 Kooperation cards and next
you choose a player of whom you hope he will have an equal card. If that is the
case indeed there are 2 possibilities:
He is willing to co-operate. In that case both make a profit.
He reports he is not willing to give his card and he plays the
self-seeker. He earns from otherone's turn and moreover the bomb advances
However, in case the choosen player does not have the card then there is but
You are to go one step back and to pay a fine of some millions of
dollars. Moreover the bomb advances 2 places.
Above each of the 3 first sides of the game board are 3 black dots at
a monopoly-space. Just when 3 black "accusation-chips" have
been put on these the relevant monopoly has been defeated! When a player lands
on such a space while not all 3 accusations have been rewarded, he may do 2
He can collect the money he has a right to as a monopolyst. The
consequence however is that also the bomb goes forward.
He lodges an accusation. To that end he has to buy a chip from the
If you finally land on the fourth green
side of the board the critical phase sets in! Here apply different possibilities:
When a player is on a space of the green
side he doesn't need to throw the dice. Instead he may
against any Monopoly.
However, when a player lands on a "penalty space" he has to
return to GR1, the first green space.
At that moment the bomb moves 1 step forward. However, now player may lodge
as many accusations as he wants, but at twice as high a price. Other
players are allowed to help him.
This intelligent and human game ought to be played World-Wide, but
unfortunately it never got the recognition it deserves.
The American version of this game is called Star Peace, anti nuclear war.

The German manufacturer of this very carefully edited game calls it "a
family game with biblical background". Therefore the foreword says "
… the game has to contribute to a better understanding and knowledge of the
word of God." The meaning of the game: "The Shalom game should bring
every individual player closer to the Holy Writ (bible) and so explaining the
connection between the Old and New Testament".

Dimensions of the box: 27 x 40 x 9 cm
The box of this game is rather voluminous because quite a lot of room is
necessary for the 8 hotels, the bank building and the town hall. The
buildings of hotel President and Fujiyama are already skyscrapers. On the game
board a circuit is set having a black edge on each side to put the Entries
for the hotels on. Opposite the Bank is a yellow
line, where you receive DM 2000.- on passing by. The yellow line opposite the
Town Hall entitles to buy Entries. The spaces of the circuit mainly consitst of Purchase
and Building Licence spaces. When you land on a Purchase space you are
allowed to buy a property adjacent to one of the sides of that space.
On a Building Licence space you are to throw the special die:
Red = you don't get the Licence
Green = you have to build now
H = building is free of charge
2 = building cost twice the normal price
Except a main building you also can enlarge with annexes and "Facilities".
The most luxury hotel is finally (!) Waikiki with 4 Extensions and all
Facilities, what makes it a 5-star hotel. The simplest hotel is called Boomerang
and has besides the main building only Facilities (max. 2 stars).
The 4 players obtain their revenues from the other players the moment
they land on a space with an Entry of one of their hotels. To that end the
player throws the normal die again. The number of pips = the number of nights he
has to stay in the hotel. The price for it depends on the number of stars of the

because of the 20 years anniversary of Star Wars.
The most striking of this game are the 2 kinds of players (the Rebels

of play are exactly the same as those of the "normal" game, however
the differences are sometimes striking, viz.:

I assume Parker/Hasbro
to be a bit in a rush for one reason or the other at the introduction of their 70th
anniversary edition, because
they are confusingly using a double reference number, meaning they
intended from the start to issue 2 different versions.
In this edition the bottom shows this double number 020500114/00402/100,
meaning that this part of the box will also be used for the edition with ref.nr.
00114. And indeed both Heute and Banking show the same green
game board (although the accompanying texts differ) on the box'
A rim of the lid however shows the ref.nr. of this issue: 0205.00402/100.
Another slovenliness is the fact that it was forgotten on both "utility
cards" to mention the multiplication factor of 10,000 to be applied. The
correction was made for those cards in the
The motto for this 70th anniversary edition was for all
countries "How would Monopoly look like should it have been invented
Some countries used this motto for the title of the edition, like France
with "Et si Monopoly était inventé aujourd'hui? (see also chapter www.muurkrant.nl/monopoly/france_-_2005_-_New_streets.htm).
Other countries used names identical to this German one like Here and Now
in England, Itt és most! in Hungary and different like the Van Dam
tot Dom in the Netherlands.
For this version the streets
have been substituted by very well-known (large) objects like buildings,
stadiums and monuments. 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 buying price for a
station became f.e. € 2 million.
For all corresponding editions applies in addition:
The blue green
are ellipse shaped and 6 mm in height, have no pointed roof and are
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 German edition hasn't one but
instead a € 30 hotel credit note that unfortunately had a limited
validity till Dec.31, 2005. However, a
little series sold by the Metro Company do have an additional
token: a Brandenburg Gate similar
to the token of the first "European

Publisher introduced its new Trend Edition Monopoly Heute, that is launched

This edition is from the collection of Roland Klose - D.
This edition is basically a copy of Heute, the 70th anniversary issue
with (apart from the date, the first 4 figures) the same double reference
number. The date clearly shows this edition was issued 4 months later than the
original Heute edition.
Underneath the picture of the wrong, green
game board at the bottom side of this box, the right ref. number 0605 00114 100 is
real color of the board is silver glossy.
The red car with Mr. Monopoly at the wheel,
only shows the word Monopoly on the licence plate, both on the lid of this
edition as well as on the Heute lid. The licence plate of the French game shows MR. M70,
meaning "Mr.Monopoly's car on the 70th birthday of Monopoly".)
Both "utility cards" now mention the necessary multiplication factor
of 10,000, see the picture.
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. It is suggested they
are 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.
All other items as tokens, houses and hotels and dice are
the same as in the Heute edition.

ref.nr.44029 issued in the UK in 1993.
As the subtitle says: The whole Monopoly pleasure can be enjoyed with this game
in but 20 minutes. There are 11 dice showing not only figures from 50 to
500 but also locomotives and policemen.
On your turn, throw all the dice as many times as you wish to get as many
"streets" of the same color and so get the highest score you can.
However, if you throw all three policemen, your turn ends and you lose all the
points for that turn.

On the bottom of the box is, next to a color picture of the game, a short explanation of the origin of the game and
how to play it.
The translation reads:
"An update of the "monopoly" folk game invented by Elizabeth Magie a 100 years ago.
The world-famous game based on our
capitalistic society where private
entrepreneurs struggle for profit.
The same applies for Anti-Monopoly®. Here players also fight to become the
richest real estate and landowner. To attain this
objective, players always
struggle for more power and eliminate their competitors merciless - not exactly
like in real life where
this is tried to prevent.
There competition looks after a functioning market with fair prices.
In Anti-Monopoly® players are divided into two
groups: competitors and monopolists. They follow
different rules as a result of
what the game becomes more dynamic and and richer
Ralph Anspach is a Professor Emeritus of Economics
at San Francisco State University who invented this Anti-Monopoly game. He based
his creation on the monopoly folkgame which was invented by
Elizabeth Magie in 1904 and was played extensively in the Eastern United States
between 1904 and 1935. Players in the monopoly folkgame buy and trade properties
to monopolize color groupings.His game transforms the folk game into a battle
between competitors and monopolists and it retains the antimonopoly message of
the creators of monopoly. Quaker teachers (members of the Society of
Friends in Atlantic City, N.J.) transformed the folkgame into what is now played
Charles B. Darrow stole the knowledge of the game and its rules from these
Quakers, commercialized it, and falsely claimed that he had invented it to
get an invention patent. He licensed it to Parker Brothers which popularized the
legend of Darrow the Inventor.. .
Ralph Anspach discovered the truth about the history of Monopoly when he
became a defendant in a ten-year long law suit filed by Parker Brothers. He
eventually won that law suit, read his book "Monopolygate".
Anti-Monopoly®'s specialty is, as said, its principle
players have to choose between 2 play methods: that of the Monopolists
and the Competitors. However, which part you will prefer, all players
have equal chances to win, although they play according to different
Rules. So Monopolists for example, can only build houses and hotels when
they have a monopoly position in a town (what is the case
already when the
player owns 2 of 3 streets), while Competitors may build on each property,
independent of they own a whole city or one single street.
On the solid board with black back the streets of 8 cities
are from Start onwards:
Monopoliste: Gehen Sie is das Gefängnis (Monopolist: Go to Jail) /
Rom: Corso Impero -
Wettbewerber oder Monopolist - Via Roma - Einkommenssteur (Income
Berlin: Alexanderplatz - Wettbewerber oder Monopolist
- Kurfürstendamm - Potsdammer Straße
Madrid: Plaza Mayor - Elektrizitätswerk (Electric
Company) - Gran Via - Paseo de la
Amsterdam: Dam - Wettbewerber oder Monopolist
- Leidsestraat - Kalverstraat
Anti-Monopoly Stiftung (Anti-Monopoly foundation)
la Fayette -Wettbewerber oder Monopolist - Rue de la Paix -
Brüssel: Grote Markt - Hoogstraat -
Gaswerk (Gas company) -

Go to the price war)
Park Lane - Piccadilly -Wettbewerber oder Monopolist - Oxford Street
Athen: Wettbewerber oder Monopolist
- La Plaka - Zusatzsteur (Special
tax) - Syntagma
The 4 spaces in the middle of each side are respectively: Flughafen - Straßenbahn
- Bahnhof and Busbetriebe.
The 3 corner spaces clearly have different meaning for the Monopolists and the
Note that this gameboard has the same cities as the French and Dutch edition,
whereas that of the Baltic countries have replaced Berlin by their own capital
city and Finland even replaced Amsterdam and Madrid by two Finnish cities:
Helsinki and Turku.
The bottom part of the box contains a white cardboard insert foulded such
a way that a lower part between two platforms can be used as bankers' tray and
store for the houses and hotels.
There are no Chance- nor Community Chest cards in this game but 2x25
plain, white cards Monopolist and Wettbewerber
instead, all with funny illustrations and always with detailed comment, like:
On the Wettbewerber cards:
|Die Regierung hat ein strenges Auge auf Firmen, die Anti-Monopol-Gesetze
übertreten. Das ist Ihr Vorteil: JEDER MONOPOLIST ZAHT IHNEN € 25. = |
The Government closely see the Antitrust Laws to be obeyd. That is
to your advantage. COLLECT € 25 FROM EACH MONOPOLIST.
|Sie gründen eine neue Firma. WERFEN SIE BEIDE WÜRFEL. 9 oder weniger:
die Firma hat KEINE ZUKUNFT. 10 oder mehr: die Firma|
hat ERFOLG, DIE BANK ZAHLT IHNEN € 75. =
You are starting a new company. THROW THE DICE. If you
get a 9 or less IT FAILS. 10 or more: the company is successfully. THE
BANK PAYS YOU € 75.
|Die Monopolisten haben die Benzinpreise erhöht. Dies hat auch auf Ihren
Betrieb Auswirkungen. Der hohe Wettbewerbsdruck verbietet Ihnen |
Preiserhöhungen. Ihr Umsatz geht zurück. ZAHLEN SIE € 50 an die Bank.=
The Monopolists have jacked up the price of gas.
Competition does not allow price increases. Your turnover falls. PAY the
bank € 50 .
On the Monopolist cards:
|Ihre Politik trägt Früchte. Emissionskontrollen, die Ihren Umsatz
geschmälert haben, wurden mit Ihrem Zutun |
abgeschafft. DIE BANK ZAHLT IHNEN € 75. =
Your political contribution was not forgotten. The smoke pollution
controls, which cut down on your profits have
been abolished. THE BANK PAYS YOU € 75.
|Durch einen zweifelhaften Deal ziehen Sie einen großen Auftrag an Land.
Werfen Sie beide Würfel, um zu erfahren,|
ob der Deal gelingt. 7 oder weniger DER DEAL IST GEPLATZT! 8 oder mehr ES
DIE BANK ZAHLT IHNEN € 75.=
Through a shady deal, you landed a big contract. To see whether your deal will go through,
roll the dice. If you
get 7 or less NO DEAL, 8 or more IT SUCCEEDED! THE BANK PAYS YOU € 75.
|Sie haben die Wahlkampagne eines Politikers finanziell unterstützt. Die
Presse hat davon Wind bekommen.|
ZAHLEN SIE € 50 an die Bank.=
You made an illegal campaign contribution to a senator. The press got
wind of it. PAY THE BANK € 50.
It is of course also necessary the two types of players to be taken into
account of on the property deeds. That is why they have 2 columns
for the prices: at the left for the Wettbewerber
and at the right side those for the Monopoliste.
The back side of the cards is also to show the property to be mortgaged. In this
situation the card must be given the bank, however, the owner can any
moment buy it back from the bank. This is also said on the back side of the
There are only 6 banknotes, printed in grey
on colored paper, in the denominations: 1
- 5 - 10
- 50 - 100
and 500. It is not clear why the Rules say
in bold "all banknotes have to be multiplied by 1000 for their real
value". This is of no importance for the course of the game!
There are only 6 plastic tokens, viz. of each a green
and blue one: cone, pyramid and a pawn like a "cilinder
The set goes with 35 houses and 15
hotels of plastic, with roof rim and chimney. (Note:
The Wettbewerber must place their houses and/or hotels on the name of the field, while the
Monopoliste must situate them on the "H"-spot.)
Both dice are white with black pips.
The first version of this 21st edition was published in 2005 in
the USA, soon followed by that of many European countries.
This edition was "Made in Spain".
The price of this edition was at the introduction € 19.95.

It will not be too great a surprise that this travel edition is almost an exact
copy of the "long box". But there must of course be
certain restrictions for this smaller version of the game, except for the tiny
game board and the nice tin with its insert of soft, white
plastic. Well, there
|The property deeds are smaller: 35 x 60 mm|
|There are no Wettbewerber, nor Monopoliste
cards, but one small card with 11 instructions for both kind of
players. And |
this is the most drastic change, because all stories and
funny illustrations have now been disappeared. The blue
side of the
card has only very resticted instructions for the Monopolists, while
the dark green side shows what the
have to pay or do receive.
|The banknotes are miniatures (25x45 mm) of those
of the long box.|
