  1. You didn’t include the drinking edition that at least one of your friends in college probably created at some point…

  5. Yeah, I’m sure that pretty much every pro sports team, major university, and big city has their own version. These were just the ones that I could come up with based on a quick Amazon search.

  6. Yes, we collect different versions of Monopoly. So far we have 25 different versions. Some of them are technically not the Monopoly brand (such as Cat-opoly, etc.), but are close enough. Fun stuff! This Post has our list. We’ve added the Here and Now edition and Bookopoly since I did that particular blog post in June.

  8. Yeah. All those versions of Monopoly – some by Parker Bros, some not. Haven’t yet seen the version I’ve been waiting for:

  9. They did not include the Millenium Edition. It debuted Christmas 0f 1999. It is in a metal tin box with the number 2000 embossed on it. It has translucent money, translucent real estate pieces modern looking game tokens and the board is folded up into a square when stored in the metal box.

    They also did not include, the more recent, Electronic Bankers edition of Monopoly.

  15. Does anyone else have a version with wooden markers instead of the metal ones? I got mine as a kid in the late 50’s so it may have been a version made at that time. The rest of the game is the classic format, but the pieces are various shapes, sizes and colors in wood…which I prefer!

  17. You forgot the Star Trek edition. The Harley Davidson Edition was shown in the movie, “Erin Brockovich.”

  18. There is also the Collector’s Edition in a metal box w/ a car on the front and the bottom of the box is in the shape of the wheels. The gameboard is numbered, the hotels are foil stamped, the tokens are antique finish metal and a plastic tray holds the cards extra money etc.. I have never opened my set, still in the plastic shrink wrap, but that is the info on the box.

    I’m still using my old traditional set, but may open this and use it someday or, it may end up on Ebay.

  19. Here’s two more: The Beatles Edition which is really cool for fans. Has great game pieces and the board properties are rights to songs and such and then my personal favorite; The Wizard of Oz Edition. Ah, so many collectables, so little time…enjoy folks.
