Dimensions of the box: 40.3 cm x 27.0 cm x 6.7 cm
Diameter of the game board: 50.2 cm
Except for the round game board in this version are of course also a number of new things to discover, like:
The property deeds of this edition differ significantly from the traditional one: In addition to being substancially smaller (45x75 mm) there is no longer a color bar, but more of a color patch.
Hasbro has also, only for this edition (?), abandoned the traditional locomotive on the station spaces. It became a modern high-speed train. Would Hasbro, after 75 years, also prefer to give a very contemporary form to its tokens? They are very nice, transparent shields with a colour image on a base. The images are again of the familiar hat - shoe - dog - iron - boat and car. Also the plastic houses and hotels got a nicer and more modern appearance!
It only took 75 years or so, but someone finally got around to doing a first-rate redesign of the classic Monopoly board. Monopoly Revolution eschews the game's traditional square surface for a modern circular board, while retaining all the fun gameplay of the original. New features include updated "here and now" pricing, an electronic game pod that keeps track of players' money — via electronic banking cards — and also provides sound effects and song clips that correspond with events in the game.
This is a remarkably white game: not only both parts of the box are white, but the customized plastic Banker's tray and the playside of the round board as well. Is it a coincidence the first board of the so-called inventor, Charles B. Darrow was painted on a large, round tablecloth while more than 75 years later again a round game board appears, but a lot smaller and in a circulation of various millions.
This beautiful version is again a clear progress compared to the City edition having its centre field full of rickety tower blocks!
Based on the first 4 numbers of the refence number of an edition we, collectors, can follow the order of issue. (The last 3 digits after the reference number is the country number given by Hasbro.)
Only during the examination of the different versions of Revolution it appeared that, since more than a year, the plants in East Longmeadow, USA and Waterford, Ireland are putting almost invisible (in white) production numbers on one of the rims of the lid, before the shrink wrap around the box is applied.
From that it can be deciphered at what moment a set was manufactured. It is therefore interesting, because in addition to the date of design of the game, i.e. the first 4 digits of the reference, the manufacturing date of the set can be known.
United Kingdom only information
The red sticker on thee foil shows the text: "NOW sounds & music bring your game to life!"
Although the game, according to the ref.nr. was already designed October 2009 and manufactured July 7 it was not published until early Augustus 2009.
The streets on this board are from the UK standard edition, so from the London board.
So they start from Go with: Old Kent Road - Whitechapel Road - ... and stop before Go with: Mayfair - Park Lane - ...
