There are no Chance nor Community Chest cards. Instead three dice have to be thrown and the instruction mentioned in the table with the corresponding number to be carried out. For the rest the rules remain the same as of the standard game.

Das Kartenspiel von Winning Moves - 2000.Edition: Monopoly  Das Kartenspiel, Art.Nr. 30089  
Publisher: Winning Moves/Hasbro - 2000 
Dimensions of the box: 3.3 x 12.4 x 16.3 cm
The game:
This is a Happy Families version of Monopoly, which means it has to be played a very different way. The object is to collect Monopolies consisting of one of the well-known street groups, the value of which to be increased by addition cards like houses, hotels and bonus.
All 4 stations and the 4 corners also make a Monopoly.

The game contains 60 cards in total, of which:

28 property cards

14 house cards ( 5x1. - 4x2. - 3x3. and 2x4.)

  2 hotel cards

16 bonus cards

For the rest are but 5 Monopoly banknotes in the denominations: € 50 - 100 - 500 and 1000
There is a small but  richly illustrated Rules, that says:

The cards:

Property deeds: The value of a complete group is given on the cards, f.e. the Schlossallee card says: € 400 für den Straßenzug + € 400 für jedes Haus (€ 400 for the full group + € 400 for each house).

The value of a group can be increased by house cards. One card always applies for all streets of the group. There are1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th house cards which have to be be purchased in this order. 

Finally a hotel card can be added. Its value is for all groups € 500.

The bonus cards are those of the tokens (6), Los (Go) (4), Mr. Monopoly(Since 2000 Uncle Pennybags is called Mr.Monopoly) (4) and Ereignis (Event) (2).

The value of your token is identical to the sum of all complete groups in your hand.

The Los cards are worth €200.

Only the player possessing most of the Mr.Monopoly card at the end of the game gets €1,000, the other cards do not have any further value.

Both Ereigniskarten can be used as Joker. They can replace other cards. However ... watch out ...., this only applies to the first player to lay down his cards. The other owner of a Joker loses all he has in hand.

At the beginning of the match each player gets 10 cards he keeps in his hand. An 11th card is led open on the table in front of him. This is his first exchange card. In the course of the game it will be joined by the unused cards from the take away stack. Each player can ask another if he/she likes to exchange a number of cards from his stack for an equal number of his own exchange stack. Both take these cards in hand and put an equal number back on their stack in order to keep only 10 in hand.

The aim of the game is to become the first to have changed his cards into complete groups with the right house and hotel cards and proper bonus cards in such a way that he/she has the highest possible value in hand. Next the game is repeated till one player becomes the first to reach a total amount of € 10,000.

There are minor differences in the Rules for more or less than 4 players.

The price of this set amounted to DM 17.95 (€ 9.15), October 2000.
