The game:
Arjan Melger Serban, president of the Rândunica Foundation (http://home.wanadoo.nl/randunica/) tells about this edition:

"The game shows color groups of companies of various Romanian cities. 

The Rules are on the inside of the lid. Inside the box is a little note of the manufacturer asking the user to test the game on irregularities. Those with the best tip are promissed a reward of 2.000 to 10.000 Lei, being about a monthly salary for a factory workerin the communist period! 
The game goes with 5 banknotes, the currency of which oddly enough is Ecu.
There is but 1 die." 

The price of this set was 70 RoL (~ € 2,50) in 1992.



The first Romanian Monopoly game!Edition: Standard, ref. 14535278
Publisher: Parker/Hasbro Inc./Transglobal Media SRL- 1997
Dimensions of the box: 26.8 x 40.3 x 5.3 cm
                  of the board: 25.2 x 25.2 cm
The game:
In the second half of the nineties Parker/Hasbro have with great energy introduced this capitalist game in the former "East bloc" countries. Even in poverty stricken Romania!

In this for the rest of Europe so well-known "standard" box is of course the red plastic "banker's tray" with holes for the 7 banknotes and property deeds 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. This edition is "Fabricat in Irlanda" and therefore it shows the picture of the "laughing family" at the bottom of the box.
On the game board the Sansa cards with nice red back are as usual near the Start corner while the Cutia Comunitătii cards with their nice blue back are near the Free Parking corner.
The banknotes are of the one side printed new model, i.e. with a black Monopoly ribbon and Uncle Pennybags in the upper part of the circle and, almost invisible, the remark "1996 Tonka Corporation". The currency is $ and the denominations are resp.: 1 - 5 - 10 - 20 - 50 -100 and 500.
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 not transparant plastic and have all an overhanging roof with an excentric chimney.
Both dice are white with black pips.
