Monopoly Surprise was first sold in 2020. A second series of mystery boxes was released in 2021 – advertised as ‘Community Chest’, named after the famous square on the Monopoly board.
Each Monopoly Surprise contains exclusive tokens (to be used with any Monopoly board game) and other collectable bonuses such as metal coins and metal houses.
However, the distribution of tokens is not random! Despite Hasbro assigning labels of ‘Common’, ‘Rare’ and ‘Ultra Rare’ – the box can be identified by its production code. Therefore, by consulting this guide you can ensure you receive every token and collectable without wasting money on duplicates.
Players suggest words that follow a specific criteria (exclamation, verb, adjective etc). These words are then inserted into a Monopoly themed short story which is then read aloud. Example shown below. This book is in the Mad Libs series.
The puzzle consists of over 750 foam pieces which come together to form a board and other accessories such as a banker’s tray and jail cell. Also included is a complete set of Monopoly pieces. Once constructed, a fully working USA Monopoly set is formed.
Free Parking is designed as either a standalone game or as an add-on to a traditional game of Monopoly.
The aim is to balance all 20 green cars on the wobbly board. Before each car is placed, the player rolls the die and places their car on the coloured segment that is rolled.
To bring the game into a game of regular Monopoly, it is placed near the Free Parking square. Then, whenever anyone lands there they must attempt to complete the mini-game. If they succeed, they may move to any square on the board. Otherwise, they do nothing.
Get Out of Jail Free (2009)
Get Out of Jail Free is designed as either a standalone game or as an add-on to a traditional game of Monopoly.
The aim is to earn the most points by freeing ‘prisoners’ from the jail, without getting the prison guards. The player with the most points wins. To bring the game into a game of regular Monopoly, it is placed near the Jail square. Then, instead of rolling a double to get out of jail free, you must free one prisoner. If successful, you are out and continue your turn. Else, the turn is over. Alternatively, you can use the set to make a 3D jail for your board.
