Printing Errors and Mistakes (Worldwide)

Here are some of the mistakes made with Monopoly games from all over the world. I am sure there are a lot more out there.

1940 - Switzerland (CH)

See what the Swiss did:

In the very early editions the error Parker made was followed by the Swiss manufacturer Carlit, viz. 3 times the same rent of Fr.440 was applied to the unbuilt yellow streets.

Carlit probably recognized Parker's mistake soon and improved it the wrong way in making the rent of the unbuilt property of the most expensive street, Rue de Bourg, the lowest, viz. Fr.400, instead of Fr.480.

That was maintained till about the end of the sixtees, after which the fault of 3x the same rent of Fr. 440 was re-introduced. It is absolutely unclear for which reason.

This version has been maintained till the issues of 1985, when the rent for the unbuilt Rue de Bourg finally became Fr.480.

± 1941 - United Kingdom Mini Box - Error Set - Green Properties

Harold Lee's collection contains various editions that can be regarded as "error sets", because they all have some kind of print error or production mistake.

The error in this edition is the misprint of the property deeds of all green properties. The absence of the green banner on the deeds of Regent Street, Oxford Street and Bond Street must have been caused by the lack of ink.
