European Edition

1991

In the period this game was launched on the market it was believed that the European currency would become ECU. That is why there are 7 banknotes with this game, all having the same illustration, in the denominations: 10, 50, 100, 200, 500, 1000 and 5000 ECU.

The back shows ECU in a black circle with 12 stars. Because "investments are internationally done a large amount of money is necessary" and that is why there is twice as much money with this issue. The banker's tray of this game is a black plastic insert with 13 holes.

The backside of the Chance and the Community Chest cards are blue. In the stars circle is a ? with Chance and with the Community Chest cards, a Belgian ECU coin. The houses and hotels are made of glossy wood and do have a roof edge. The dice are blue and their pips are again stars of course.
