Monopoly Deal Error – Pall Bow Street (2024 Refresh)

In 2024, Monopoly Deal was refreshed with a new look style. The game itself remains unchanged with the same 110 cards as before. However, the first print run (Product Code: 0523-G0351-102) has a major error! The name of ‘Bow Street’ has been misprinted to ‘Pall Bow Street’. The other properties remain unaffected. It appears as every Monopoly Deal in this initial print run is affected.

Monopoly Deal is a card game based on the classic board game. Monopoly Deal was first released in 2008 and this 2024 reprint is its fourth design (Original 2008 edition, 2014 Shuffle, 2017 Hasbro and 2024 ‘Refresh’). Between 2014 and 2017, Monopoly Deal was produced by Cartamundi and was advertised as a part of its Shuffle produce line. The rules and cards have remained unchanged since its 2008 launch.

Pall Bow Street

My edition was purchased direct from a wholesaler – NDA Toys before the game had reached stores (January 2024). At time of writing, this refresh edition is only sold by Smyths, with other major stores still selling the previous (2021) print.

Hasbro Response

When alerted to this error – Hasbro responded that they are aware of the error and are taking action for the next print run. However, the affected batch of Monopoly Deal is currently still making its way to shops.

Hasbro also offered to send a replacement game.

Dear Callum,

Thank you for your email.

Monopoly Deal – Themed

  • Deal Transformers (2016) [HK]
  • Deal Cities – London (2017)

Three editions were made by Cartamundi in 2017 – the last year of their production of Monopoly Deal. These editions include: London, Paris and Berlin. I have never seen a Paris or Berlin edition for sale. However, this collection includes Monopoly Deal London – which appeared to be an Amazon exclusive.

  • Deal DFB – Die Mannschaft (2018) [DE]

Monopoly Deal Disney

Released: 2014

Cartamundi released a Disney themed edition of Monopoly Deal. The now discontinued Shuffle App was compatible with both the standard deck and Disney deck. This edition is also valuable online due to it being out of print. Rules identical to that of Monopoly Deal – just with a Disney art work theme


Monopoly Millionaire Deal

Released: 2012

The aim of Monopoly Millionaire Deal is to bank One Million in cash, instead of the usual aim of gathering three colour Property sets. Otherwise the game plays the same.

Monopoly Millionaire Deal did not initially sell well compared to its board game counterpart – Monopoly Millionaire, released in the same year. Therefore, this card game now sells for a higher price online.

Monopoly Deal – International

  • Hong Kong (2008) & Greece (2008)
Sealed Greece (2008) Cards
  • India Funskool (2008 Copyright)
  • Deal (2008) [USA] – Shuffle Shaker
  • USA (2009)

Rebranded from Parker to Hasbro

  • Hong Kong (2009) – Cardboard Box

Potentially not a genuine Monopoly Deal – box and cards low quality

  • France (2010)
  • Spain (2010)
  • Canada (2011)
  • USA / Canada (2013) – Robot Token Edition
Robot Token – loser from 2013 Save Your Token event
  • USA (2014)
  • Shuffle – France (2014)
  • Special Pack – Hong Kong (2015)

Extra cards were included in special editions of Monopoly Deal in Hong Kong.

These are:

  • Speeding Fine – you can ask any two players to discard one card from their hands
  • Pay My Rent – when other players charge you rent you can shift this so another player pays the rent
  • You Inherit – Get one card from another player for your use
  • Go to Jail – ask any player to skip one turn. They can’t play any card in the corresponding turn
  • Double Sly Deal – Steal TWO property from any player (not from full sets)

  • Italy (2017), Spain (2017) & USA (2017)
  • USA (2017)*

This edition is lacking the Hasbro Gaming logo. Perhaps a production sample or simply a counterfeit edition. It has also been claimed that this is a Canadian version?

  • Germany (2018)

2008 – : Monopoly Deal (card game)

Monopoly Deal is a card game produced by Hasbro (Cartamundi between 2014 and 2017). The aim of the game is to collect 3 different complete colour Property sets.

How to play Monopoly Deal:

To start the game, every player takes five cards.

On your turn, you draw 2 cards and can play up to three cards from your hand. A turn can consist of adding money to your bank, adding properties to your collection or playing an Action card. You may only have 7 cards at the end of your turn – if you have an extra, you must discard down to seven.

All cards can function as cash if added to the bank. You may only ever pay debt with cards in front of you – never from your hand! There is no change allowed in the game. If you owe more money than is in your bank, you must complete the debt with properties. Otherwise, there is no trading allowed, apart from what is mandated by Action cards.

To win, collect three different property sets. All Action cards have instructions printed on them.

2014 – Morrisons Promotional Pack (Cartamundi)

In 2014, Cartamundi held the license to produce card game versions of Hasbro products. Condensed versions of these games were available for a short time at Morrisons. Customers who spent a certain amount (£20?) were given one of these games for free – Monopoly Deal was once of these.

This version has less cards than the regular Monopoly Deal. To win, one must complete only two colour property sets. Six colour groups survive – Pink, Orange, Red, Yellow, Dark Blue & Utilities. The number of Action Cards is also reduced. Although, there is a new type of Action Card – the Forced Purchase. This forces a player to sell a property at twice the purchase price.

2014 – 2017: Cartamundi Shuffle (Hard Red Case)

Cartamundi released hard case versions of Hasbro games – including Monopoly Deal. The game is otherwise identical. However, a companion app was released, which adds Chance Cards to the base game. This edition is now Out of Print with the app no longer available to download – making this game sell for over £30 online. In 2017, it was republished with a new cardboard sleeve – game remains the same.

2017 – 2024: Return to Hasbro

This is the current version of Monopoly Deal, which is still available in shops and online. The game is identical to previous releases albeit with a return to the cardboard packet. The cards also has a completely new art style.

  • 2021 reprint

Game remains unchanged – production code now 0421 (April 2021) implying there was a change during the reprint. The only difference appears to be a change in Hasbro UK address on reverse of box. Now located in Newport.

2024 + : Current Edition (Refresh)
