Already a year after the World edition, the whole world contributed to by voting, it was published Hasbro to come with another novelty now surprising the whole world with a 
complete new design
of the original game of constructing houses and hotels on streets. Although ..... I would not be surprised the three-dimensional game
Hotel from 1996, from MB-games (from Hasbro as well), was the inspiration for the designers of this Monopoly theme edition.
Note: Remarkable to see that in passing Parker's logo totally disappeared from the box of this issue, only the Hasbro logo left. Does this say something for the future?


CITY, Dutch version.Dimensions of the box: 40,0 x 26,8 x 6,6 cm
The game: 
The lid of the box already enthusiasticly shows it to be a three-dimensional happening, where the game board's midfield is used 
to build buildings of the district on. The district of each field with color bar is always in its close proximity. 
Inside the innerbox is a large tray of black plastic for the storage of the 80 3-D buildings to be built in the districts. 
There are:

Residential buildings, grey
8 x 1 block
2x 2 blocks
3x 8 blocks
Industrial buildings, light blue:
8x 1 block
4x 2 blocks
8x 3 blocks
Skyscrapers, green: 5x
Monopolytower, brown, with M-emblem: 1x
Stations, red: 8x
Stadiums, red: 2x
Bonus buildings, red
3x school
3x wind farms
3x water towers
3x park
Hazards, black:
3x power stations (value 3 blocks)
3x sewage works (value 3 blocks)
3x pridon (value 4 blocks)
3x rubish dump (value 2 blocks)

It appears to be nice to play with high buildings and skyscrapers, but it is not likely to be practical because they don't stand very stable. In the otherwise 
carefully edited  Rules booklet is advised to roll the dice in the lid "so that you don't knock any buildings over!". It would have been better to stick the buildings 
magnetically to the board.

In contrast to the classic edition you don't need to collect all streets of one color, but may immediately start to build on one district to a maximum of 8 blocks. That 
can be residential buildings as well as industrial buildings or a combination of both.
Residential buildings are cheaper than industrial buildings, but in case another player builds a hazard (a black building) in your district residential blocks in that 
district become worthless and do not count towards its rent  value. However, you can remove this hazard from your district by paying to the bank.
On the other hand you can prevent opponents to build hazards in your districts by building yourself a red bonus building
Hazards and bonus buildings are for free and do not count for the 8-block building limit per district. By the way, you may only build these bonus buildings and hazards 
when you land on a planning permission space (the former stations).

The designers of this version invented another instrument again to be used with this edition. This time no card reader but a trading unit with an auction button  
and a build button:

The build button is on the side of this trading unit. You must press this button to learn how many blocks or a station you are allowed to buy this turn.
In case you land on a still available district but are not willing to buy it (for the normal price) the property must be auctioned. For that purpose the banker 
pushes the auction button to start the auction. Everyone may then bid during 50 seconds.

When this trading unit has been put on it will give a signal after playing for an hour. In case you like to play for another hour you have to swich the trading unit off 
and on once again.

How are the buildings used and what do they contribute to the rent income per district?

The rent for an unbuilt property is mentioned on the property deeds, but next it is not only built with houses and hotels. The building is calculated 
in blocks, taking into account that a maximum of 8 blocks per district are allowed.
You may choose from residential buildings, industrial buildings, skyscrapers and the only one Monopoly tower, stadiums and stations that may 
be built in each district. 
The You may choose from residential buildings, industrial buildings, skyscrapers and the only one Monopoly tower, stadiums and stations that 
may be built in each districtprices of the first 3 buildings are mentioned on the property deed. Only these buildings are determinative for the 
rental income.
A station is free if the build button allows you. You may build such a station in a district at your choice! A nice chance though to pass for an extra 
time over Go, but also to bypass districts with high rents.
The purchase of a stadium do cost M 2.000.000 (= Monopoly dollars), but each time you passes over Go you receive, next to your regular salary, 
another M 1.000.000.

Because there is no room anymore on the midfield of the board, the only stack of cards (only Chance cards) must be placed somewhere alongside the game 
board. There are a few cards with well-known instructions, but the most are typical for this game, like:

Toxic waste. Pay M 1M for each sewage works on districts that you own. If you don't have any sewage works, go to jail
Graffiti disaster. Pay M 50k per district you own to have graffiti removed..
Steal. Steal a district and all its buildings from a player of your choice. Cannot be part of a completed colour-set.

There is one special card in this game, Rent Dodge!, you only get on landing on the Free Parking corner. You have, however, to use it before an other player 
lands on that corner, because in that case you have to give the card that player.

The 7 banknotes are in a stack with codenr. 100017900000. They are the modern banknotes with ridiculous and particularly superfluous high values that for 
that purpose are being presented shortenedly with 1k for 1000 Monopoly dollars. What could have been the deeper thoughts of the designers?
The bills are printed in black on colored paper. The denominations are: 10k (white) - 50k - 100k - 200k - 500k - 1M and 5M.

There is a "Reminder Card" for each of the 6 players. That apparently means the Rules are that complicated that such a help is needed! With the description 
above you can decide yourself if you agree. 

The price of this game was at the introduction in Europe €49.95 and $34.99 in the USA.

 

 

Some editions from over the whole world, in order of number of country:

 

America + Singapore:
American CITY edion also sold in Singapore.     Name of the version: CITY -
  Ref.Nr.120801790284                  
   
    The edition with the number mentioned is called the 
    American version on Internet, what seems to be very 
     acceptable because all American editions still show 
     the blue Parker logo.
     On the other hand country number 284 point at Singapore, 
     while America itself has country number 000. 
     
     Remark the American edition says "Ages 8+",
     whereas the Britsh box shows: "Age 8+".

               in Germany until January 2010.
               
               Like with the Hungarian issue of the CITY edition the designers have dropped 
              
a stitch, what apparently was not recognized before the game went into production: 
               In the Jail-corner ought to be shown "Nur zu Besuch" but it says "Zu nur zu Besuch".

Hungarian START corner on the CITY board.     Name of the version: CITY - Ref.Nr. 0701790165

     The districts in this version are from Strat onwards:

     Városkapu - Szerencse kártya - Kavicsdű - Iparűzési

     szeméttelepet vagy parkot!
Nyugatti városrész - Szerencse kártya - Öböl kiköősor

     Épitési engedély/építs - Szerencse kártya - Szerencsevőlgy - Iparűzési
adó -
     Gyémánthegy.
     
The designers of this Hungarian game board have dropped a stitch: The fact is the Start corner of the board shows Strat and so this error 
appears wherever the picture of the board is shown, such as on the lid, the bottom of the box and on page 4 of the Rules. It is however, correctly 
written in the text, like on the Szerencse kártya (
the Chance cards) and in the Rules.
