With this edition, MONOPOLY, the world-famous game about property and real estate, guides you through Gelsenkirchen - the city in the heart of the Ruhr area, on the flat slopes of the wide Emscher Valley.
Located on the flat slopes of the wide Emscher Valley, the city and its surroundings were only sparsely populated until the middle of the 19th century and were almost exclusively agricultural. Only after the discovery of hard coal in 1840 did it develop into an important location for heavy industry.
In 1875 it received town charter and later the nickname “City of a Thousand Fires”. The history of the city of Gelsenkirchen is relatively short, but as changeable as it is exciting - shaped by the industrial boom and fall, by migration from the east and south and by athletic greats with centuries of tradition.
In this edition of MONOPOLY, you can roam the city, stop in Nordsternpark or at the Glückauf arena, buy the music theater, haggle over the Consol colliery, the Schauburg or the stadium. Buy and sell your favorite spots and stores so the cash register always rings! With strategy, negotiation skills and luck, you will be at the forefront of the real estate moguls and win the game!
