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.

1996 - Hybrid edition of Ref. Nr. 14535: Czech lid on Dutch Inner box

In a shipment of Monopoly editions in 2004 from Hasbro it appeared only a number of editions having been wrongly put together. That is something one doesn't expect and it only appears the moment you intend to play and take the shrinkwrap off the box.

But fortunately this rarity was found in time and the box wasn't opened. That the set is still in its original sealing may appear from the large picture.

David Miller, UK, bought a copy of this hybrid set March 2007 from someone who bought it in Bratislava himself. It was offered on the ebay auction site as a Slovak Monopoly, what it isn't! Although a sticker of the seller (see the picture; presumably a junk dealer who bought up Hasbro's misproduction) is in Slovakian and a copied Slovakian Rules is put inside the shrinkwrap the lid of the set is in Czech and the bottom in Dutch. I wonder if Hasbro would have cooperated with Tinaco to originally shrinkwrap this set with a copied Rules or that this firm re-shrinkwrapped the set after it had added these Rules and put its stickers on top the barcode.

So in a set opened by Albert, he found with great surprise the board and cards are all Czech, so with the streets of Prague, instead of Bratislava, as the lid of the game already promissed! So in fact this edition is a complete Czech set, except for the bottom part of the box.

No idea why it is introduced as a Slovak edition in Slovakia.

2000 - Hybrid Edition of Ref. Nr. 14535: Hungarian Lid on Spanish (Madrid) Inner Box

In the same shipment of 2004 there were a few more hybrid editions, but of a different combination. As it appears from the picture it now concerns the lid of the standard Hungarian edition on the innerbox of the standard Spanish edition of the Madrid design.

Consequently it is very likely other hybrid combinations having been caused in that same period, like the reverse of this composition, so, a Spanish lid on a Hungarian innerbox. However, this hybrid variant hasn't yet turned up.
