Wonders of the World
Dimensions of the box: 26.8 x 40.1 x 5.3 cm
This very nice special edition shows Mr. Monopoly in a balloon on the lid as well as on the game board.
In this issue the properties are 22 of the most impressive and well known wonders of the world. On the mortgage side of the property deeds is a short history. The stations have been replaced by European airports.
The spaces have numbers pointing to the places in the world where these landmarks are situated. The Community Chest spaces show an ancient treasure chest in mahogany instead of blue, bulged with jewels. The innerbox has one large dark blue plastic tray with 4 big holes to store the houses and hotels and 2 rows of slots for the banker's cards and banknotes. The colour picture on the bottom of the box clearly shows all details of this set.
The heavy metal tokens are no world wonders but copies of inventions of transport means and are warrior waggon, canoe, balloon, bicycle, steam engine, clipper, airplane and car. The € banknotes are those from earlier editions. The plastic houses are dark blue, the hotels are beige. Both wooden dice are dark blue and have gold pips.
The specialty in this edition are those 4 plastified passports. The aim is to land on each of the streets and mark them in your passport. The first player to visit all world wonders receives a bonus of € 1500. This is also the moment the game ends. The crosses can be removed from the passports by a dark blue cloth supplied with the game.
