Millennium Edition

Publisher: Waddingtons / Hasbro

Dimensions of the double folded board: 25.2 x 25.2 cm

Ref. 0699 40942 102

This very luxury issue entirely in silver, is identical to the American version, except for the game board that contains the streets of London.

The silver coloured tin is in a blue plastic wrapping showing on its bottom the illustration as to the next picture. This clearly shows that the background of the board is also silver coloured. In this Mr. Monopoly (up till this issue for many decades he was called Uncle Pennybags) is holographically shown. Very nice! On the black back of the board is, again in silver, the Monopoly bar with there under "Millennium edition".

It is really pitty that the plastic wrapping is so vulnerable and so easily tears. The 15 pages Rules, with magnificent detail pictures, has a luxury execution like the rest of this game. The amber coloured dice with 12 facets 6 of them showing the dots (and so called 6 sided by dice collectors). The transparant banknotes seem to be made of parchment. However, to my opinion these banknotes are a bit too "slippery" to play pleasantly.

    The 8 new tokens (almost) all relate to modern developments:
  • 1. A future computer understanding speech.
  • 2. A video cell phone.
  • 3. An in-line skate.
  • 4. A globe as a symbol of the "global village".
  • 5. A Concorde superjet.
  • 6. A futuristic car.
  • 7. An frictionless rim drive all-terrain bicycle.
  • 8. A Labrador doggie, because the "yellow Lab" is America's most popular breed.

The stackable square houses and unstackable rectangular hotels are made of transparant plastic. Both Chance and Community Chest cards have silverr-colored backs with the number 2000 in the background. There are 2 trays of black plastic in the high tin to store all these attributes. On top of that is the double folded game board that warps a bit, presumably caused by its special treatment.

Although also this issue excels in its luxury it can hardly be called original. This in contrast to Millenniumopoly, a theme game of Late for The Sky (only issued in the USA). In this game 26 highlights of twenty centuries of world history are quoted, see chapter "USA - Related Games".

This game was "Made in USA".
