Map  of Finland.

The early Finnish Monopoli editions of the Parker Brothers/Hasbro company have been published by the Swedish licensee Alga thanks to the close connections Finland always has had with Sweden. Besides Swedish is the mother tongue of about 5.5% of the Suomi's population. The first Monopoli editions where therefore bilingual but the later issues were in Finnish only.
For some obscure reason Alga's mastery had been temporarilly been interrupted by a company named Kuvataide OY
Today Hasbro Nordic, with its seat in Glostrup - Denmark, distributes all games, manufactured in the large European works in Waterford Ireland.

From Lähtö/Gå onwards the spaces of the bilingual editions are: 

Korkeavuorenkatu/Högbergsgatan - Yhteismaa/Allmänning (Community Chest) - Kasarmikatu/Kaserngatan - Tulovero/Inkomstskat (Income Tax) - Linjuri Asema/Buss Station - Rantatie/Strandvägen - Sattuma/Chans (Chance) - Kauppatori/Salutorget - Esplanaadi- katu/Esplanadgatan - Vankilassa käynti/I fängelse På besök (In Jail) - Hämeentie/Tavastvägen - Vesijohtolaito/Vattenledningsverket (Water Works) - Siltasaari/Broholmen - Kaisaniemenkatu/Kaisaniemigatan - Sörnäisten Asema/Sörnäs Station (a Metro Station) - Liisankatu/ Elisabetsgatan - Yhteismaa/Allmänning - Snellmaninkatu/Snellmansgatan - Unioninkatu/Unionsgatan -  Vapaa Pysäköinti/Fri Parkering (Free Parking) - Lönnrotinkatu/ Lönnrotsgatan - Sattuma/Chans  - Annankatu/Annegatan - Simonkatu/Simonsgatan - Rautatie Asema/Järnvägs Station (Railway Station) - Mikonkatu/ Mikaelsgatan - Aleksanterinkatu/Alexandersg. - Sähkölaitos/Elektricitetsverket (Electric Company)  - Keskuskatu/Centralgatan - Mene vankilalaan/Gå till fängelset (Go to Jail) - Tehtaankatu/Fabriksgatan - Eira/Eira - Yhteismaa/Allmänning - Bulevardi/Bulevarden - Tavara Asema/Gods Station (Freight station) - Sattuma/Chans  - Mannerheimintie/Mannerheimvägen - Lisävero/Extra Skatt (Special Tax) and Erottaja/Skillnaden.

(Note: In the pre-war edition(s) there was no Mannerheimintie, but a Heikinkatu. The street was named in 1812 as Henrikinkatu /Henriksgatan after minister Robert Henrik Rehbinber. In 1935 it was named Heikinkatu, and 1942 as Mannerheimintie after the “war hero” C.G. E. Mannerheim.)

The streets on the Parker/Hasbro game board also are those of the capital Helsinki of course:

Korkeavuorenkatu - Yhteismaa (Community Chest) - Kasarmikatu - Tulovero (Income Tax) - Pasilan Asema - Rantatie - Sattuma (Chance) - Kauppatori - Esplanadi - Vankilassa käynti (In Jail) - Hämeentie - Sähkölaitos (Electric Company) - Siltasaari - Kaisaniemenkatu - Sörnäisten Asema (a MetroStation) - Liisankatu - Yhteismaa - Snellmaninkatu - Unioninkatu -  Vapaa Pysäköinti (Free Parking) - Lönnrotinkatu - Sattuma - Annankatu - Simonkatu - Rautatie Asema (Railway Station) - Mikonkatu - Aleksanterinkatu - Vesijohtotaitos (Water Works)  - Keskuskatu - Mene vankilalaan (Go to Jail) - Tehtaankatu - Eira - Yhteismaa - Bulevardi - Tavara-Asema (Freight station) - Sattuma - Mannerheimintie - Lisävero (Special Tax) and Erottaja.



Heikinkatu property on early board.Edition: Monopoli/Monopol - small black box with separate game board (1)
Publisher: A.B.Finska Alga/Helsinki * O.Y.Suomen Alga/Helsingfors - Tilgmann - ±1939 
                  Copyright. A-B Alga Stockholm
Dimensions of the box: 19.5 x 16.2 cm   
 of the separate board:  49 x 48 cm
The game:
Heikinkatu only in very early edition(s). This edition is owned by Heikki Pietarinen -SF. His mother got this set 
it in 1939, so before the war.

Although Heikki does not have the small box belonging to this game there is 
no doubt the publisher is the same as of the 1948 edition mentioned later.
On the other hand its age is fixed because of the fact the first street of the last 
colorgroup is named Heikinkatu, meaning the edition to be from between 
1935 and 1942.
Another striking point is the color bars of the property deeds being narrower than usual. These cards have rounded corners.
Yellow street of 1939 edition.
As was to be expected the rent for the unbuilt
  yellow street Keskuskatu is the same 
(mk. 4.000) as for the other yellow streets. This 
mistake arose at the start of this game in 1935 
(the Atlantic City edition of America) and was 
consequently continued in all other countries. 
This rent was adapted, i.a. made slightly 
more expensive, soon after 1985

Banknotes of the 1939 edition.

Other features of this edition are:6 colored draughtsmen.

The Sattuma/Chans cards (sizes: 52x90mm) are light 
, the Yhteismaa/Allmänning cards are light yellow
The currency in the Finnish text of the cards is SMK (Suomi 
) in the Swedish wording FMK (Finska Marka?).

The 7 banknotes are sometimes printed in color on white 
and sometimes printed in black on colored paper
Their denominations are resp.: 100 - 500 - 2,000 - 5,000
- 20,000 and 100,000 mk. Two of the small squares 
show an electric locomotive, whereas the other 2 show 
something  that could perhaps be a hotel?

There are 6 tokens consisting of colored draughtsmen.

The houses and hotels are of dull wood.

The small, white plastic dice have black pips.

 of the separate board:  49 x 48 cm
The game:
Mannerheimintie of 1944.This edition is also owned by Heikki Pietarinen-SF.

This edition must have been published in 1944, or somewhat earlier perhaps, because on the bottom of the box is written “to jjyrki at Christmas 1944“.
The image on the lid
only shows the name of Tilgmann, reason to assume this set to be published by A.B.Finska Alga.
Yellow straat of 1944 edition.
Within 5 years after the first edition the name 
of the last property but one was changed into 
, after the Finnish war hero 
C.G. E. Mannerheim.

Except for the fact that the rent of the unbuilt yellow 
properties in this edition is also the same for all
3 streets the Mikonkatu property deed is a 
misprint: it is missing the yellow bar.


3 of 7 banknotes of the 1944  edition.Almost all other items are the same as of the 1939 edition, viz.:

The Sattuma/Chans cards (sizes: 52x82 mm) are light pink, the Yhteismaa/Allmänning cards are light yellow. Now the currency is in 
MK only in both languages of the cards.

The 7 banknotes are sometimes printed in color on white paper and sometimes printed in black on colored paper

Bilingual game board from 1948.Edition: Monopoli/Monopol - small black box with separate game board (3)
Publisher: A.B.Finska Alga/Helsinki * O.Y.Suomen Alga/Helsingfors - Tilgmann - 1948 
                  Copyright. A-B Alga Stockholm
Dimensions of the box: 19.5 x 16.2 cm
 of the separate board:  49 x 48 cm
The game:
This is a funny story about how finally all pieces of a reseach fall together!

Risto Kallio
from Finland pointed me some time ago to this bilingual Monopoli edition, of which he only had the game board. As I was 
just in the process of constructing chapter Sweden with the help of David Miller from the U.K., having a lot of early Swedish editions, it 
became clear this set had great resemblance with the Swedish sets from the period 1937 till ±1950, because:

The basic design of the board is according to that of Waddington, i.e. 
The Yhteismaa spaces only show a < in a black dot (no blue treasure chest)
There is nothing in the Lisävero space (no gold ring).
All property names are mentioned twice, but now in Finnish and Swedish, rather than in mirror.

However, the images of all 4 corner spaces, the 4 "station spaces" as well as those of the Sähkölaitos (Electric Company) and Vesijohtotaitos (Water Works) have been invented by the Alga designers. Notice that these spaces have been exchanged for one reason or the other. It is obvious a local bus-, railway-, freight- and metro station were applied. 

Risto explains: The old central busstation of Helsinki shows the text Linjuri Asema. Asema means Station, while Linjuri stands for Bus. In fact Linjuri is somekind of nick name for a bus, because the real finnish translation for bus is Linja-auto. The word Linjuri is no longer used these days. (That may be the reason why this station has been replaced by the Pasilan Asema in later editions.)

Finnish first small box edition? - 1948.Torni Hotel of Helsinki.But than it happened that David Miller obtained a complete set from the tradera auction site 
with the same game board as Risto's.

Like in the early American and UK editions the whole set consists of a small box for all 
accessories as there are: the property deeds, the Sattuma- and Yhteismaa cards, banknotes, 
houses and hotels, tokens and dice and a separate game board. The lid, as well as the centre 
of the board, shows an image with two large towers, the left one being that of the Torni Hotel 
and the right one representing the main railway station. In between are two men underneath the 
Monopoli arch, but in contrast to the image on the Swedish editions they are now a traffic 
controlling policeman allowing a businessman to pass
, rather then a "seller handing over 
a contract of sale to a buyer". These images are typical for the interpretation of Monopoly by the 
Alga designers. 
Helsinki main railway station.At the end of both Rules it is found the manufacturer to be Tilgmann and the year of publication 
! On top the Rules it says "Ett Alga-Spel".

The playside of the board is yellowish green and its backside can be black or white. The fold is perpendicular to the first side.
The property deeds (95x83 mm) have rounded corners. They are white, while their backs have the mortgage information written in red
The rent for the unbuilt yellow street Keskuskatu is the same (mk. 4.000) as for the other yellow streets. 
The Sattuma cards (82x52 mm) are dark pink through in color, the Yhteismaa cards very light yellow.
There are only 6 Monopoly banknotes (95x52 mm), sometimes printed in color on white paper and sometimes printed in black on colored paper. Their denominations are resp.: 100 - 500 - 2,000 - 5,000 - 10,000 - 20,000 and 100,000.
The dull wood houses are light blue green,  the hotels red. This set had only 3 colored wooden chess pawns for tokens.
Both dice are of brown wood with white pips.

This edition was sold on  www.tradera.com for 162.- kr. (€ 17.40) Februari 2008.



Bilingual Monopoli edition 1954.Edition: Monopoli/Monopol - small black box with separate game board (4)
Publisher: Kustantamo (publisher) Kuvataide OY - Helsinki - OY Tilgmann AB - 1954 
Dimensions of the box: 19.5 x 16.2 cm
 of the separate board:  49 x 48 cm
The game:
This is another interesting edition Risto Kallio - SF came across. Its year of publication was found at the end of the Rules pamphlet. These Rules do not refer at all to Alga.

This bilingual edition is very similar to the one issued 1948, however this one is not published by Alga but by a company named Kuvataide OY. It is however, still manufactured by Tilgmann, the company who also made the Monopoli edition of 6 years before!

Light blue green game board from 1954.Only manufacturer's name is mentioned on the lid and a small, red logo of Kuvataide, the publisher. 
The image on the sticker of the lid is the same as of Alga's edition.
The design of the game board and its illustrations haven't been changed. Only the background color of the playside  moved a bit to light blue green and the colors of the property bars can slightly change. It is 
remarkable to see that the "bubbles and stars"-design hasn't been applied yet, but that could have been done intentionally by the new publisher?

Innerbox with attributes - 1954.The property deeds, Sattuma (Chance)- and Yhteismaa (Community Chest) cards as well as the houses and hotels are exactly the same as in the earlier edition.
The 7 banknotes almost have the Monopoly design, i.e. a central ellips with a large number and the words Monopoli and Monopol and 4 little rectangles with a figure. It is here where the notes deviate from the real Monopoly notes of that period, because those rectangles 2 times show an electric locomotive and twice an obscure image, where it ought to be resp. number - old locomotive - house and number again. The 
denominations are resp.: 100 - 500 - 2,000 - 5,000 - 10,000 - 20,000 and 100,000.

There are only 5 wood checkers as tokens in this edition, again a remarkable deviation with respect to what was usual in Sweden.
The dice are white with black pips.



First large box, ±1976.Edition: Monopoli - white box, Art.nr.1807 (1)
"Algan kuuluisa liikemiespeli koko perheelle" (Alga's famous businessman game for the whole family)
              © Parker Brothers Inc., USA och AB Alga Sweden (on the game board only)
Publisher: Parker Bros.Inc./AB Alga Sweden - OY Fenno/Alga AB - ±1976  
Dimensions of the box: 28.0 x 42.3 cm                                                           
                 of the board: 41.7 x 42.5 cm
The game:
This edition is owned by Päivi Martikainen - SF.

This new and colorful large box is very interesting for a number of reasons, viz.:

It is again an issue from Alga, now in cooperation with the Finnish company Fenno.

This is the first time the size of the box was changed in such a way that the game board fits inside.

Since 1961 Parker Brothers started to apply the same design for its standard Monopoly editions all over the world. 
The white lid shows a "game board in a green in a blue square" with the red Monopoli bar. (The Swedish designers 
however, have made a mistake, because the game board in the green square is the Swedish board, so with
 the streets of Stockholm and , instead of Lähtö). In the blue square is a red logo of OY Fenno/Alga AB. 
In the lower left corner is the companies name, while in the lower right corner is a red square with the precursor of "Rich Uncle Pennybags".
On top the red bar is Parker Bros./Alga's slogan in light blue characters.

Jail corner on 1976 game board.
Although the Parker influence was increasing the design of the board was just deviating from the Parker design: In order to indicate the difference between 2 groupes of streets with the same color, the colors of 1 group are made different by bubbles, stars and linesThe text on the properties is shown twice so it can be read from all directions. By the way, these issues are no longer bilingual.

With the picture: 
In the Parker design the group of streets preceding the Jail-corner have yellow bars and the group around the corner have green bars. Not so in the Alga design.
The Vesijohtotaitos (Water Works) space show a bathtub rather than a tap. (The Sähkölaitos (Electric Company) space however do show already a bulb, although not in the Parker design.)
The Yhteismaa (Community Chest) spaces show a black §.

The playfield of the board shows twice the image of walking Rich Uncle Pennybags and the red Fenno/Alga logo.

Plastic tokens of Finnish edition - 1976. The rent on the unbuilt Keskuskatu (the last street before Go To Jail) is still mk 400, which is the same as on the 2 other streets of this group. 
The dimensions of the orange Sattuma- and blue Yhteismaa-cards are 50 x 75 mm.
The 5 small Alga banknotes (50x87 mm) are one-sided printed on colored paper. In the middle is the value in large figures and 
thereunder the neutral NO. 123456789. The  denominations are resp.: 10 - 200 - 500 - 2000 and 10.000.
The 6 tokens are the well-known shoe - dog -  iron - hat - boat and car, but made of grey plastic. This was very unusual and therefore 
of special interest for collectors?!

The game:
This edition does not have any "subtitle" on top the red bar of the lid anymore. On the other hand it clearly shows the Parker Swirl in the 
lower left corner.

Although the last mentioned copyright year on the game board is 1961 it is most likely this edition to be issued much later. Compared 
to the same editions of other countries, the innerboxes of which initially only partly had a cardboard insert and the full red plastic insert - 
containing 13 holes - came much later, I date this issue about ±1980.
Under the red bar on the lid is an image of Uncle Pennybags in a red square showing the number 77314 and a blue Parker locomotive 
o the left and right of this square.
The bottom of the box has a black/white picture of the so-called inventor Charles B. Darrow and the matching untrue story.

The midfield of the green board with red back has Monopoli in closed black characters parallel to side 1. Over Lähtö you receive mk 4.000. The light blue Sattuma cards (55x85 mm) and light pink Yhteismaa cards have a repeating pattern of engine-Uncle Pennybags-engine on their back. 
The property cards with rounded corners (55x85 mm) have a white back printed with red text. The rent of the unbuilt Keskuskatu  is mk 400. 
The 7 Monopoly-banknotes (50x95 mm) show the mention “pat.app.for N°3796-36”. They are printed in color on white paper and the denominations are: 50 - 200 - 500 - 1.000 - 5.000 - 2000 and 10.000. 
The 8 tokens are the well-known: shoe - dog - wheel-barrow - iron - hat - boat - car and thimble.
The green houses and red hotels are of hollow plastic and have overhanging roofs. Only the houses have chimneys. 
The dice are red with yellow pips.

This issue was "Printed in France - F".

The innerbox contains a solid insert of red plastic devided in 13 holes for the banknotes and the other attributes. There is nothing on the bottom of the box. 

The blue green game board shows the word Monopoly (with Uncle Pennybags) in closed characters in a frame sloping over the midfield.
The blue Sattuma cards (55x85 mm) and pink Yhteismaa cards have a repeating pattern of engine-Uncle Pennybags-engine on their back. The property deeds with rounded corners (55x85 mm) have a white back printed in red

Edition: Standard Monopoli, ref.001111 690187 
Publisher: Parker Bros./Kenner - 1985 
Dimensions of the box: 26 x 51 cm
The game:
This set is owned by William Moore - SF.

This edition has exactly the same game board and attributes. The set however, bears another reference nr. so there must be a difference. And there indeed is. Where the lid of the other edition of the same era spelled Monopoly the American way, this one is spelled again the Finnish way.
William searched for more differences. He didn't found them. However, he found 2 mistakes, probably made by the French designers (?) as these editions were manufactured in France:

On the board, one of the Railway Stations is written correctly as Rautatie Asema. On the corresponding card however it is written in as Rautatieasema (all one word).

There is one spelling error (in English) in the centre of the board. The copyright text reads "The distinctive design of the game board, as well as....  are trademarks of Parker Brothers, division of Kenner Parker Toys Inc. for it's real estate trading game and game equipment... etc, etc. It should read: "..... for its real estate trading game ....".

It then shows:

  1. The Railway Stations are written the same way, both on the game board and on the property deeds,  in all earlier and later editions.

  2. The game board of this issue is the same as of the one with ref. 690224 that has the same spelling mistake in the copyright text.



Magnetic pocket edition - 1991.Edition: Magnetic Pocket, red folder, barcode nr. 440235
Publisher: Parker Bros./Gilco Ltd./PlayMix - Vantaa - 1991
Dimensions of the unfolded little board: 176 x 216 mm
The game:
Although the year 1985 is mentioned on the little game board as latest copyright year this variant was not published until about 1991, 
because all specific editions were manufactured in Japan those days.

The little game board is in a red folder the size of a pocket diary. This folder fits in a jacket with window in the front. The gold colored 
Monopoly bar of the folder shows up in this window when storing it up. All attributes fit a holder of transparent plastic. The sizes of all 
parts are small, namely of:

the property deeds: 45 x 52 mm
the Sattuma and Yhteismaa cards: 25 x 44 mm
the banknotes: 25 x 47 mm

the white dice: 5 x 5 x 5 mm

Only the 8 tokens, the green houses as well as the red hotels are flat squares sticking to the board. However, no provisions have been made for the money and cards so these have to be kept in hand?
A not very practical game that however have to be present in a collection.

The price amounted to FIM 53,- (€ 9,40) August 1995.

must count their money to see who has won. 

The board's  back is blue like the plastic insert of this long box. The board is folded vertically. Th bottom of the box shows a black/white 
picture of the board and all attributes. The money consists of one-sided printed notes of 1 till 5 with Herra Pennosen (Uncle Pennybags)  
in various situations. 
Four kids can play at the same time, because there are 4 cars, resp. yellow, red, blue and green. The ticket booths that have to 
be distributed amongst the players with the same color of car. The game is said to be a A thrill-filled day at the Amusement Park and 
will be over in about 20 to 30 minutes. You travel with Herra Pennosen to the Roller Coaster, Magic Show, Water Chute, the Video Arcade and more. In the coarse of the game ticket booths can be bought to place on an Amusement so that it becomes your property. If you also own the other Amusement of the same color, one has to pay double the amount shown on the space. There are 6 Chance spaces where cards can be drawn with instructions like "Go to the water Chute" and "Pay 3 mk and take the fair-train to the WC". The sizes of these cards are 55 x 84 mm.

The back of the board is red, like the plastic insert of the innerbox. Sloping over the light green midfield now is the red bar with  Monopoly in white characters, while Uncle Pennybags is coming out the central O.
The bottom side of the box shows the well-known color picture of the laughing family mainly looking to eachother rather than to the game
The back of the
Sattuma cards has a red print with ?, while the  Yhteismaa cards are printed blue with the well-known treasure chest in a circle. 
The 10 tokens of heavy metal ("made in China") are resp.: hat - wheel- barrow - shoe - car - canon - rider-on-horse - thimble - iron - boat and dog. The green plastic houses do have a chimney the red hotels haven't. 



Standard edition of 1996.Edition: Standard, ref. 14535/109  
Publisher: Parker Bros./Hasbro DK - 1996
Dimensions of the box: 26.8 x 40.3 x 5.3 cm
       of the game board: 25.2 x 25.2 cm
The game:
(The number 109 in the reference is Hasbro's country number for Finland).

Striking of this edition are the new sizes of the box. Hasbro let us know this has to do with the "standardisation" of the dimensions of their games. 
So herewith disappearsthe long box till so we've called standard  far. The dice on the lid still show 3 and 5.
In this new box is one red plastic tray with different shaped holes for the money and property deeds of the bank. The game board is folded in four. 
Its back is red, the play side is blue green
The game has been manufactured in Ireland so it has again the picture of a laughing family on the bottom. On the game board are the nice 
- and Yhteismaa cards of this edition. 
The banknotes are of the new model, i.e. with a black banner showing "Monopoly with Uncle Pennybags" on top the circle and, hardly readable, 
the remark "1996 Tonka Corporation".
The prices of the properties have never been changed and so you still receive 4,000 mk over Lähtö.
The 10 tokens are of pewter (without the mention "made in China"). 
The green, plastic houses do have a chimney, the red hotels haven't.



Junior in in square box-1996.Edition: Junior - Fins, ref.14540/109 
Publisher: Parker/Tonka Corp./Hasbro Scandinavia A.S. - 1996
Dimensions of the box: 26.8 x 26.8 cm
The game:
(Do you see that now Monopoly is again written with a y?)

The differences between this version and the one of 1992:

A totally new square box.

A new illustration on the cover: Children in a roller coaster cart  with 2 jumping dolphins in the background.

The color picture on the bottom of the box shows a scene again of  2 (different) girls and a boy. The money they use is that of the 1991 

Now the game board is oblong: 25 x 50.5 cm.

The back of the board is red like the plastic tray in the inner box.

The money consists of 5 banknotes (47x92 mm) with different illustrations of Herra Pennosen (Uncle Pennybags) in color on white paper, 
: 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 and 5 mk.

The Sattuma (Chance) cards have become much smaller in size: 43 x 63 mm.

The price of this set amounted to FIM 159.- (€ 28.90) April 1999.

This issue is now also "Fabricado na Irlanda".



Standard edition of 2001.Edition: Standard, ref. 00009/109 
Publisher: Parker Bros./Hasbro Nordic - DK - 2001
Dimensions of the box: 26.8 x 40.3 x 5.3 cm
       of the game board: 25.2 x 25.2 cm
The game:
Parker/Hasbro are standardizing their games more and more world-wide (because of what to my opinion becoming the less interesting for collectors). Now the standard editions of all countries bear number 9, the number for the American standard editions since the first issues of 1935. 
The design of this new game features:

The illustration on the lid shows a somewhat cheap red rim.

Only 4 spaces of the fourth side of the game board are shown in  perspective with 1 house, 1 hotel, still the hat and the racecar as 
well as both dice, however now with 4 and 3 (instead of 3 and 5).

The perspective red Monopoly bar with the nice shadow and  Mr.Monopoly with the red bow tie (until 2000 he was Rich Uncle  Pennybags), 
that appears on the lid, the board game's midfield and all 4 rims of the innerbox.

The bottom side of the box no longer shows "the laughing family" but almost the whole game board with all its attrubutes. 

The "banker's tray" of this standard box is red again and has holes for 7 banknotes as well as for the property deeds who are still present with the banker. The game board is folded in four and fits, when stored, precisely on the banker's tray. The back of the board is as usual red, the playside is blue green
On the board the Sattuma cards with red back and ? as usual next to the Start corner and the Yhteismaa cards with blue back and treasure chest next to the Free Parking corner. The cards (56x87 mm) have round corners.
The property cards (56x87 mm) also have round corners.
The banknotes (52x100 mm) are printed on one side only. On top of the circle on the note is a black ribbon showing "Monopoly with Mr.Monopoly". At the bottom of this circle is in small characters "©2001 Hasbro Inc.".  The currency is Euro(€) and the denominations are resp. 1 - 5 -10 - 20 - 50 - 100 en 500 (ref.100 00009 00C0). 
Over Lähtö you receive, like with the issues in all other EC countries € 200.
The 10 tokens are of light metal and are the well-known: hat - shoe - car - boat - dog - wheelbarrow - rider-on-a-horse - thimble - iron and canon. 
The green houses and red hotels are of non-transparant plastic and all have an overhanging roof with an excentric chimney.
Both dice are white with black pips. 


3D Disney edition, 2005.Edition: Uusi Monopoli Disney-pelinä - Finnish, Ref.Nr.120519631/109
              "Ylös nouseva" (unfolds)
Publisher: Parker/Hasbro Nordic - DK - 2005
Dimensions of the box: 27.0 x 40.2 x 6.5 cm
The game:
Again Parker/Hasbro introduces something completely new: a 3D fairy-tale castle opens on the centre-field of the game board of this Disney edition. It is nice to see, but I wonder if it plays nice as well?

I know all properties are based on titles of Disney books, but because I do not own this edition myself and I cannot think up the Finnish names of the books I hope some owner of this set is willing to report me all the streets?

Except for the 6 (or 8?) standard fairy-tale tokens this edition has a very special and essential one, viz. Tinker Bell. An additional paper give an explanation of the Special Rule for 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
Lähtö corner.
2. The moment a player throws double Tinker Bell proceeds 1 space. Besides she jumps over the Tax-, Showtime- and Magic World spaces as well as the Jail and 
    Free Parking.
3. When you land 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 land on a property that doesn't yet belongs to someone else while Tinker Bell is there already, you'll get the property for free.


Junior edition of 2005.Edition: Monopoly Junior - Finnish, Ref.Nr. 00441/109
Publisher: Parker/Hasbro Nordic - DK - 2005
Dimensions of the box:
26.8 x 26.8 cm
     of the oblong board: 25 x 50.5 cm
The game:
The Junior editions remain unchanged over the years as far as its principles are concerned. So the only thing the maker can do 
is to put all items in a box with a new design. And indeed it has a nice and fresh appearance.






Monopoly as a Dice Game.Edition: Monopoly express, Ref. Nr. 030642787/179
              "Aidon Monopolyn hauskuus vain 20 minuutissa"
Publisher: Parker/Hasbro Nordic - DK - 2006
Dimensions of the box: diam. 15.5 cm x 4.5 cm
The game:
Note: Hasbro's Country Number 179 (in the games' Ref.Nr.) stands for "all Scandinavian countries".

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 is "Made in China".


Tässä ja nyt - versio, 2006.Edition: Monopoly Tässä ja nyt - versio, Ref.Nr. 050600114/109
                                  (Here and now - version
Publisher: Parker/Hasbro Nordic - DK - 2006
Dimensions of the box: 27.0 x 40.2 x 6.5 cm
The game:
This Finnish edition of the world wide launched new "Here and Now" design came almost a year later than the corresponding German 
issue, but as I still believe, that country had to take the lead in the development of all different versions as there are: 

"Here and Now" with red car showing Mr. Monopoly at the wheel. Some editions have "MR. M70" on the licence plate, 
meaning  "Mr.Monopoly's 70th birthday", but in other countries
the licence plate only show the word "Monopoly".

"Here and Now" with red car on the electronic banking issues using credit cards and a card reader.

"Here and Now" with Mr. Monopoly in a red helicopter showing the credit cards to be used with the card reader belonging to 
this electronic banking version. This is the design of this Finnish edition.

The motto for this 70th anniversary edition was for all countries "How would Monopoly look like should it has 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 Finnish one like "Here and Now" in England, "Itt és most!" in Hungary and different like the "Van Dam tot Dom" in the Netherlands.

For these editions 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 Lähtö , 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. Is there any reason why all those useless nils have been applied?

For all corresponding editions applies in addition:

The game board's background is silvery grey. Its back is black.

The Yhteismaa spaces show a modern black chest, filled up with (yellow) gold rods. The grey background of the Sattuma cards has a red ?.

The Lisävero (Special Tax)-space show a more modern goldring with 3 red stones.

The mortgage side of the property deeds (56x87 mm) is grey.  

A banker's tray, a dark blue plastic insert in the innerbox, containing a.o. special slots for property deeds and credit cards.

The blue green houses are ellipse shaped and 6 mm in height. They 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 - mobile - money bag and airplane.  
Besides some countries has an additional token characteristic for the country. However this Finnish edition hasn't one.

Six Parker/Visa credit cards are packed together with the Visa card reader, all "made in China". Credit cards replace the banknotes (which can be ordered should you like to have them as yet). All winnings and spendings are booked per player in the card reader unit.

Both dice are white with black pips.

A richly illustrated Rules booklet of 15 pages goes with this edition.



Finnish square box from 2006.Edition: Standard - Square box, Ref.Nr. 050600009/109 
Publisher: Parker Bros./Hasbro Nordic - DK - May 2006
Dimensions of the box: 26.8 x 26.8 cm
       of the game board: 25.2 x 25.2 cm
The game:
Instead of issuing a reprint of the standard box from 2001 Parker Bros./Hasbro decided in all their wisdom, for some misterious 
reason, to issue a new sized box with the same ref.nr. 00009 already in use for the standard edition
It looks like the standard edition will from now on be in the square box?

Accept for the new sizes all the rest is exactly the same.



Finnish Anti-Monopoli edition, 2006.Edition: Anti-Monopoli®, Ref. 24001
             "Klassikkopelin uusi sukupolvi"
Publisher: Suomen Pelimiehet Oy/University Games-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 of the Finnish text reads:

"The Anti-Monopoli is a first big step forward in the famous Real Estate Game which was originally invented in the year 1910.  
Atlantic City Quakers developed this game to its current shape,  and since then it has become a huge sales success worldwide.
The Anti-Monopoli is based on a new revolutionary idea of a game.  In other games the players follow the common rules,  which 
allow all players an equal opportunity to win the game.  The Anti-Monopoli players follow,  however,  the two different rule 
combinations where some are the monopolists and others their competitors.  In spite of the different rules it is a fair game for all 
players as the chances to win have been mapped with a help of computers.  Professor Ralph Anspach invented the game and Professor Irvin Henzel performed the necessary calculations.
The system of two rules makes the difference of the monopolists and the competitors.

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.

Two Finnish towns prevail the second side.

On the solid board with black back the streets of  8 cities are from Lähtö onwards:   

Rooma: Corso Impero - Kilpailija tai Monopolisti - Via Roma - Tulovero (Income Tax)
Berliini: Alexanderplatz - Kilpailija tai Monopolisti - Kurfürstendamm - Potsdamer Straße
Kiertoajelu/Hintakilpailu(price war)/Vankila (Jail)
Turku: Linnankatu - Sähkölaitos (Electric Company) - Vanha Suurtori - Aurakatu
Helsinki: Senaatintori - Kilpailija tai Monopolisti - Esplanadi - Mannerheimintie
Anti-Monopoli säätiö (Anti-Monopoly foundation)
Pariisi: Rue la Fayette -Kilpailija tai Monopolisti - Rue de la Paix - Champs-Élysées
Brysseli: Grote Markt - Hoogstraat - Kaasulaitos (Gas company) - Nieuwstraat
Monopolisti: Mene vankilaan (Monopolist: Go to Jail) /
Mene hintakilpailuun (Competitor: Go to the price war)
Lontoo: Park Lane - Piccadilly -Kilpailija tai Monopolisti - Oxford Street
Ateena: Kilpailija tai Monopolisti - La Plaka - Omaisuusvero (Property tax) - Syntagma

Note that Finland has two cities occupying the whole second side of the game board, having chased Madrid and Amsterdam.

The 4 spaces in the middle of each side are respectively: Lentokenttä - Rautatieasema - Kuljetusyhtiö and Linjaautoasema.
The 3 corner spaces clearly have different meaning for the Monopolists and the Competitors.

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 Monopolisti and Kilpailija instead, all with funny illustrations and always with detailed comment, like:
On the Kilpailija cards:

Hallitus on pannut tuulemaan ja Kilpailuvirasto on tiukentanut kilpaililainsäädäntö määräyksiä monopolistien vahingpksi. PERI € 25 jokai

You made an illegal campaign contribution to a senator. The press got wind of it.. Just plead no contest and 
PAY a fine of € 50 to treasurer.

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 Kilpailija and at the right side those for the Monopolisti. 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
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 Kilpailija must place their houses and/or hotels on the name of the field, while the Monopolisti 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.

Dimensions of the box: 26.8 x 26.8 x 5.4 cm
       of the game board: 25.2 x 25.2 cm
The game:
I was very surprised to recognize the "Tässä ja nyt" design of a few years earlier, but now with Mr. Monopoly driving a red car with the very special license plate bearing number "MR. M70" (meaning Mr.Monopoly 70 years of age). However, on second glance the Finnish flag is to be seen, hidden behind the red Monopoly bar. And at last it appears this issue to be a "Finland edition"!

The picture on the lid will doubtless be a compilation of buildings easilly to be recognized by the Finnish voters.
This all means the game board has new street names composed of cities from all over the country

All properties of this new issue are from Lähtö onwards:

Turenki - Yhteismaa (Community Chest) - Kuhmo - Tulovero (Income Tax) - Pasilan Asema -Lahti / Lahtis - Sattuma (Chance) - Seinäjoki - Seinäjoki - Vankilassa käynti (In Jail) - Pori / Björneborg - Sähkölaitos (Electric Company) - Jämsä - Kuopio - Sörnäisten Asema (a MetroStation) - Espoo / Esbo - Yhteismaa - Kouvola - Kangasala -  Vapaa Pysäköinti (Free Parking) - Tornio - Sattuma - Forssa - Lohja / Lojo - Rautatie Asema (Railway Station) - Loimaa - Lappeenranta / Villmanstrand - Vesijohtotaitos (Water Works)  - Hämeenlinna / Tavastehus - Mene vankilalaan (Go to Jail) - Järvenpää / Träskända - Kajaani / Kajana - Yhteismaa - Savonlinna / Nyslott - Tavara-Asema (Freight station) - Sattuma - Tampere / Tammerfors - Lisävero (Special Tax) and Hamina.
Notice that a number of towns also have a Swedish name.

All items like the banknotes, houses and hotels, dice and tokens are the same as in "Tässä ja nyt".



Jouni (with spectacles) and Maija (at the back, left).Edition: Kalliopoly
Makers: Jouni Kontiala and Maija Sohlman - Oct.2003
Dimensions of the board: Standard Monopoly board, covered with prints of our own.
The game:
Jouni Kontiala remarks about this game with streets of the Kallio district of Helsinki, this esotheric version of Monopoly should better not be published because it is a rather naughty one, only to be played on the KultaPalmu bar in Helsinki:

"The word 'Kallio' means 'high rock'. Kallio used to be a district for labour-class and that has left some traces on the atmosphere. 
Nowadays a lot of students live here. That's due to the fact that apartments here are small, usually 20-40 m2
There are no big shops in Kallio but a huge amount of
1) tiny pubs
2) thai-massage-services. 
No one has ever seen anybody going into the latter ones, but somehow they manage.
We also have the privilege to have the most known girl-street (Aleksis Kiven Katu) of Helsinki were girls from Russia or Estonia offer their services.
Finally Kallio has the reputation for a place where you can buy drugs or illegal liquer. But, as a matter of fact, that's only a reputation.
Things used to be like that, but during recent years the streets of Kallio have cleaned up.

This is the atmosphere that gave me the idea to make 'an adult version' of Monopoly, a version which includes also the darker sides of life.
But always treated with humour."

The Kallio district streets are from Lähtö (here: Kultapalmu) onwards:

Helsinginkuja - Ensi linja - Sörnäisten Metroasema - Kustaankatu - Harjukatu - Harjutori (sauna) - Hangonkadun Katkolla/REHAB - Kirstinkatu - Castreninkatu - Alppikatu -Karmulaston Taksiasema - Toinen Linja - Kolmas Linja - Neljäs Linja Vapaa Roskalava (Free Parking) - Agricolankatu - Kaarlenkatu - Viides LinjaHesarin Taksiasema - Pengerkatu - Porthaninkatu - Fleminginkatu - Mene Katkolla - Sturenkatu - Aleksis Kiven katu - Hämeenkatu - Aleksis Kiven Kadun Tavara-asema -Helsinginkatu and Vaasankatu (where KultaPalmu pub resides).

The basis for this edition was a standard game board on which stickers with the new street names were pasted. Like this the standard property deeds and cards were used to stick the new names and instructions on. These were plastized afterwards in order to make them durable for occasional beer-baths.
The instructions of some of the cards read:

Take empty bottles from your home to re-cycling.
You get 500 euros for the bottles. (in Finland you get 10 cents per bottle when taken to re-cycling)

You've been infected in Aleksis Kiven katu. Pay the doctor bill, 1000 euros. 

Your tax-fraud has succeeded. You get back 3000 euros. 

You win the Karaoke-competition in KultaPalmu. Your 1st prize is 2000 euros.

Your Viagra-bill. Pay 2000 euros.

All banknotes of the Standard Monopoly edition with red border, ref.00009, are used, as well as the houses and hotels. However, there are special tokens to this set, viz.: nail-clipper - coin - condom - Mika Häkkinen F1 World Champion 1998 pin  - Finnish Mark silvercoin 1908 - bottle of theaterglue - stapler - film box and Jouni's junior basketball gold medal.

Kalliopoly box, design ref.00009.Jouni gives following additional information to the design of their pub edition:

Where the lid of the Standard edition says  Tunnetuin kiinteistöpeli (The most known real estate game
our set says Tuntemattomin kiinteistöpeli (The least known real estate game and we are proud of that). However this latter will 
change since it is published in my world wide Lexicon!

We have replaced the Parker-Swirl by a Kalkker-Swirl  in order to reduce the resemblance with the wellknown game 

In Kalliopoly Start-corner is KultaPalmu, where you get €4000 whenever you visit or pass by.
Unfortunately it's not true in real life, otherwise Maija and I would be millionaires.

There is no Jail but a Rehab instead. In Kalliopoly it's the worst possible punishment if you can't have a drink. That is also the idea in the card saying: Go to rehab, go straight to rehab, without going first to KultaPalmu.

The sauna in Harjutori is the best Sauna in northern semisphere (and southern semisphere doesn't exist, when talking about Saunas). The Sauna  is heated up with a fire-stove burning 1 m long birch-logs.
