Publisher: Hanky Panky Toys - abt.1977
Dimensions of the box: 32.7 x 43.2 cm
…….……of the board: 41 x 41 cm
The game:
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 euro".

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 Mobil. 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 set was bought in 1996.



Anti Spiel, ref. 212.Edition: Anti .. jeu – game – spel – spiel ®, ref. 212
                The "Bust~the~Trust!" Game
Publisher: a Hanky Panky product - 1977
Dimensions of the box: 25 x 48 cm
The game:
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:

  1. Oligopoly-combination which is marked by 1 accusation circle O

  2. Trust-combination which is marked by 2 accusation circles OO

  3. 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 IOU.

There are 36 postbox cards, who give favourable or unfavourable news like:

"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:

  1. Basic game: In this way the course of the game is ruled by coincidence.

  2. Low-budget game: The trustbusters start with less money.

  3. Trade game: Here the trustbusters are allowed to swap accusations.

The back side of the game board is blue.

This game goes with German, English, French and/or Dutch instructions.



Petropolis, ref. nr.3206.Edition: Petropolis, ref.nr. 3206
Publisher: KLEE Nürnberger Spielefabrik - 1975/81
Dimensions of the box: 27.3 x 40.1 cm
The game:
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. 
(= 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.  
The money 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 and P$1.000.000

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 yellow 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.



Anti Monopoly, ref. 2136/3.Edition: Anti-Monopoly, ref. 2136/3
            "Das Spiel für freie Marktwirtschaft"
Publisher: ASS - Leinfelden - 1983
Dimensions of the box: 26.4 x 50.2 cm
The game:
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.



Anti Monopoly, ref. 2150/5.Edition: Anti-Monopoly II, ref. 2150/5
            "Das ganz andere Spiel"
Publisher: ASS - Leinfelden - 1984
Dimensions of the box: 26.5 x 50 cm
The game:
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 ("Wettbewerber") 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" exort 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 green, brown, lilac, dark green, blue, purple, 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 and Europafracht.
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.



Schloßallee-1985.Edition: Bau auf der Schossallee
Publisher: Parker Bros./Kenner Parker - 1985
Dimensions of the box: 26 x 50.6 cm
The game:
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 games. 

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 skate - Sail boat and a Moped
There are 3 dice, one of them being white and provided with a G (Glück), W (Wunsch) 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 most properties.
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 game board in black and white.
The set was manufactured in France.

Identical games are Advance to Boardwalk (USA), Marble Arch (GB) and Ga verder naar Kalverstraat (NL).

The price amounted to DM 35.- (US$ 20.-) in October 1995.



Washington-Moskau - 1987.Edition: Anti-Monopoly III, Washington-Moskau
            "Wenn Sie gewinnen, gewinnt der Frieden,
             Wenn alle verlieren, verliert die Welt"
Publisher: ASS - Leinfelden - 1987
Dimensions: 26.5 x 50.2 cm
The game:
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 authority

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:

  1. He is willing to co-operate. In that case both make a profit.

  2. 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 3 spaces.

However, in case the choosen player does not have the card then there is but 1 possibility:

  1. 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 things:

  1. He can collect the money he has a right to as a monopolyst. The consequence however is that also the bomb goes forward.

  2. He lodges an accusation. To that end he has to buy a chip from the cashier.

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 
buy Accusations 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.

Hotel, a kind of Monopoly game.Edition: Hotel, Ref.14313D
            "Das Spiel aus der luxuriösen Welt der Traumhotels"
Publisher: MB Spiele/Hasbro Deutschland GmbH -1996
Dimensions of the box: 27 x 40 x 9 cm
The game:
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
= 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 hotel.
The winner finally possesses all hotels.

A very nice game that really do belong to the collection of each Monopoly games collector.

The game:
Again a very nice game indeed that gets the mark "Limited Collector's Edition". The co-operation between Parker Bros. and Lucas Film Ltd. arose because of the 20 years anniversary of Star Wars.
The most striking of this game are the 2 kinds of players (the Rebels and Imperials) each having their own Vehicles and Poperties. The rules of play are exactly the same as those of the "normal" game, however the differences are sometimes striking, viz.:

MONOPOLY standard

This is a box in the colors dark blue, silver and of course red.
The game board spaces can hardly be found on the cover, but so a couple of footballers, eachone in an energic posture but not in a match position. On the bottom of the box is again a clear picture of the game board and its attributes. 
Besides it shows that an inner box as football ground is supplied with the set. It also strikes that the Ereignis and Gemeinschaftskarten are replaced bei Aus and Heimspielkarten, with of course matching texts like "Transfer to Brasil" and "You have missed a penalty. Pay 2000 fine". 
The banker's tray is of soft dark blue plastic and has a special space for the square game board.

German rug game, made in Holland.Edition: German rug game, no Ref. Nr. 
Publisher: Hasbro/Altap B.V.-NL -2004
Dimensions of the rug: 0.93 x 0.93 m
The game:
This rug game is owned by Roland Klose - D.

Except for this German rug, the Dutch firm Altap B.V. made a same rug of the standard Dutch Monopoly game bord as well.
The rugs go with a set of all standard sized property deeds, Chance- and Community Chest cards, Monopoly money (Set C, ref.nr. 100 00009 00C0), 32 wooden houses and 12 hotels, 2 wooden dice with black pips and 6 large (5 cm high) wooden aggrivation pawns for tokens. Of course the set is accompanied by a Rules paper.

I once heard of a game player who bought this rug for the only reason this set was € 5 cheaper than the standard set with ref.nr. 00009.

I think this set gives space for matches of more than 6 players.

This version was only available in the German supermarket PLUS shops under the art.nr. PLU7154.


Disney 3D, 2005.Edition: Disney - 3D, Ref. 030519631100
Publisher: Parker/Hasbro - 2005
Dimensions of the box: 27.0 x 40.2 x 6.5 cm
The game:
This Special Edition is from the collection of Roland Klose - D.
Although this edition has the same reference number as the 2002 issue its presentation is quite different:

The picture on the lid is a new design in which Scrooge 
McDuck is replaced by Mickey Mouse.

On unfolding the game board a 3D fairy-tale castle opens 
on its centre-field.

Except for a few exceptions all properties are the same, but situated in different order over the board.

From Los on all spaces are:

Bernard & Bianca - Zauberhafte Welt - Cap und Capper -Steuer an Dagobert Duck - Toy Story - Dumbo - ShowtimeDornröschen - Peter Pan - Gefängnis - Alice im Wunderland - Zauberstab - Susi und Strolch - Schneewittchen und die Sieben Zwerge - Findet Nemo - Aschenputtel - Zauberhafte Welt - Pinocchio - Das Dschungelbuch - Frei Parken - 101 Dalmatiner - Showtime - Arielle, die Meerjungfrau - Bambi - Die Monster AG - Lilo & Stitch - Mulan - Elfenstaub - Der Glöckner von Notre Dame - Gehen Sie In Das Gefängnis - Pocahontas - Die Schöne und das Biest - Zauberhafte Welt - Tarzan - Die Unglaublichen - Showtime - Aladdin - Steuer an Prinz John and König der Löwen

The cards, money and buildings are the same as of the earlier edition - only a few of the 8 tokens are different. Although the lid shows but 6+1 tokens the game comes with 8+1, viz.: Alice in Wonderland - Peter Pan - Mogli - Lady and the Tramp - Dumbo - Pinocchio + a golden Tinker Bell and (not shown on the lid) Snow White and Sleeping Beauty.

The story on the back of the box contains two errors in the text, viz.: "... hilfreich zur Seite chte (ought to be: steht) auf deinen Besitztümern Hütten und Schlösser und genieße mit Dsney Monopoly ...".

A piece of orange paper give an explanation of the Special Rule of this game: 
In order to make this edition even more magic you shall introduce elf Tinker Bell:
1. Prepare the game as usual and put Tinker Bell token at the Los-corner.
2. The moment a player throws double Tinker Bell proceeds 1 space. Besides she jumps over the Tax-,
    Showtime- and Zauberhafte Welt-spaces as well as the Jail an Free Parking.
3. When you lands on a property owned by another player and Tinker Bell is staying there already, it is the
    Banker who pays the rent for you.
4. When you lands on a property that doesn't yet belongs to someone else while Tinker Bell is there already,
     you'll get the property for free.


Heute Edition,  2005.Edition: Heute, Ref. 020500114/00402/100          
Publisher: Parker/Hasbro - Febr. 2005                  
Dimensions of the box: 27.0 x 40.2 x 6.5 cm
The game: 
This edition is from the collection of Roland Klose - D.

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' bottom.
A rim of the lid however shows the ref.nr. of this issue:
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 Fernsehturm without 10,000 factor. Banking issue.

The motto for this
70th anniversary edition was for all countries "How would Monopoly look like should it have been invented today?". 
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 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 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 edition" (Blue Box)

The new model banknotes, where Mr.Monopoly seems to bear a circle with the note's denomination on his hand. All notes show the same10 character number. The denominations are resp.: 10k - 50k - 100k - 200k - 500k - 1M and 5M. (The whole bundle bears the codenr. 100 00402 0000.)

The banker's tray, a dark blue plastic insert in the innerbox has 7 holes for the attributes.

The mortgage side of the property deeds is grey. On the grey background 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 Heute are all from Berlin and are from Los in order: 

Checkpoint Charlie
- Siegessäule - Bahnhof Zoo - Oranienburger Strasse - Simon-Dach-Strasse - Die Hackeschen Höfe - Im Gefängnis - Tiergarten - Sony-Center - Olympiastadion - Strandbad Wannsee - Flughafen Schönefeld - Brandenburger Tor - Gedächtniskirche - Reichstag - Frei Parken - Tränenpalast - Museumsinsel - Berliner Philharmonie - Lehrter Bahnhof - Kollwitzplatz - Gendarmenmarkt - Fernsehturm - Pariser Platz - Gehen Sie in das Gefängnis - KurfürstendammUnter den Linden - Friedrichstrasse - Flughafen Tegel - Kadewe and Schlossstrasse.

In Germany this anniversary edition was introduced as follows:

Maxi die of 900 m2 board."With the worldrecord of the largest Monopoly game board ever Parker celebrated Friday, June 17 in the Berliner Friedrich-Jahn-Stadion the start of the anniversary the over-dimensioned way: On 900 m2 the Toy Publisher introduced its new Trend Edition Monopoly Heute, that is launched right in time. From the motto „How would Monopoly look like should it have been invented today?“ it hereby goes with modern tokens via Los over nowadays Berlin scenes, stately penhouses and skyscrapers and players do pay close to real purchase prices. Those having luck will win a "Wellness Weekend“ from the Ereignis cards stack or may enjoy a "Salary for a TV appearance “."


Banking VISA, 2005.Edition: Banking - VISA, Ref. 060500114/00402/100
Publisher: Parker/Hasbro - June 2005 
Dimensions of the box: 27.0 x 40.2 x 6.5 cm
The game:
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 given.
The 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".)
Fernsehturm property deed with correction factor. 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.




Monopoly express, a new dice game-2005.Edition: Monopoly express, Ref.080542787100

Publisher: Parker/ Hasbro - 2005
Dimensions of the box: diam. 15.5 cm x 4.5 cm
The game:
This edition is owned by Roland Klose - D.

This game is just an other presentation, though a nice one, of the Dice game, like f.e. ref.nr.14087F, issued in 1992 in France and 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.

This edition, a non regular item of Hasbro, is "Made in China".

German Anti-Monopoly, 08509.Edition: Anti-Monopoly® - German edition, Ref. 08509
             "Das Wirtschaftsspiel des 21. Jahrhunderts"
Publisher:University Games Europe B.V.-NL - 2006
Dimensions of the box: 26.8 x 40.2 cm
The game:
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 in variation."

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 as Monopoly.
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:   

Berlin, the capital of Germany.Rom: Corso Impero - Wettbewerber oder Monopolist - Via Roma - Einkommenssteur (Income Tax)
Berlin: Alexanderplatz - Wettbewerber oder Monopolist - Kurfürstendamm - Potsdammer Straße
Sightseeing-Tour/Preiskrieg(price war)/Gefängnis (Jail)
Madrid: Plaza Mayor - Elektrizitätswerk (Electric Company) - Gran Via - Paseo de la Castellana
Amsterdam: Dam - Wettbewerber oder Monopolist - Leidsestraat - Kalverstraat
Anti-Monopoly Stiftung (Anti-Monopoly foundation)
Paris: Rue la Fayette -Wettbewerber oder Monopolist - Rue de la Paix - Champs-Élysées
Brüssel: Grote Markt - Hoogstraat - Gaswerk (Gas company) - Nieuwstraat
Monopoliste: Gehen Sie is das Gefängnis (Monopolist: Go to Jail) /
Begeben Sie sich in den Preiskrieg (Competitor: Go to the price war)
                                                                                                           London: 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 Competitors.
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
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:A German Monopolist card.

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 HAT GEKLAPPT!
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 cards.
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 with sphere".
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.



German travel edition of Anti-Monopoly.Edition: Anti-Monopoly® - Travel edition in a tin - German edition, Ref. 08853

Publisher:University Games Europe B.V.-NL - 2009
Dimensions of the tin: 11.5 x 19.2 cm
of the little board: 18.0 x 18.0 cm
The game:
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 are, viz.:

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 Wettbewerber 
have to pay or do receive.  
The banknotes are miniatures (25x45 mm) of those of the long box.
The 6 smaller, wooden tokens are also in green and blue, but now resp. a cone - beam and cylinder.
The 35 houses and 15 hotels (note that the colors has been changed) are punched from a small block of foam plastic.
The dice are those of the large edition.
The Rules are on 4 pages of A6-size.

This edition was "Made in China".

The price of this edition was at the introduction € 9.95.
