Top-10 Affordable Limited Edition Monopoly Games

Since its conception and first release in February 1935, Monopoly has enticed and captured the attention of gamers worldwide. And now, 83-years later, Monopoly still remains relevant with the younger generations devising their own editions and changes. For older generations, the evolution of Monopoly over the years is providing something to add as a collector’s item now and then.

Having scooped several awards including the prestigious GAMES Hall of Fame, Monopoly demands respect, just by existing. The board game comes in several versions and each release comes with rules and designs slightly different from the previous one. As a result, there are now many different monopoly games. Over the years, some of the board games get destroyed. And in celebration of some significant milestones, the publishers of Monopoly create some limited editions. There is now an impressive list of limited edition types of Monopoly ready to be collected. But first, let’s take a quick look at how to play this board game.

How to Play Monopoly

This board game consists of one board and two 6-sided dices. Players roll the two dices to move for the number of squares equal to the sum of both dices, and in the process buy, develop and trade property. Opponents who don’t own property pay rent to the owner who collects everything and ultimately, the winner is the one who comes on top as the tycoon and victor — absolute capitalism.

Here is a summary of specs that remain the same across all editions of Monopoly:

  • 2-6 players for some versions, 2-10 players for other versions,

  • game setup time takes less than 10 minutes,

  • playtime on average takes anything between 1 and 4 hours, as Monopoly can be an intellectually stimulating game,

  • skills needed to play Monopoly include strategizing, planning, organising and resource management,

  • Monopoly is published by the following groups: Hasbro, Parker Brothers, Waddingtons and Winning Moves.

Okay, so the publishers of Monopoly found a winning strategy to keep the game relevant over the years. The Monopoly special editions are how Monopoly stays on top of the game — figuratively. These editions are named after some special moments or entertainment shows and as a result, they resound with a significant number of gamers.
