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.

As we are unable to replace just this card at this time, please provide your full address details and I will arrange for the older version of the game (same game just a different design) to be sent out to you. 

May we thank you for contacting Hasbro and if we can be of any further assistance, either now or in the future, please do not hesitate to contact us again.

Kind Regards,

Representative, Hasbro Global Consumer Care-UK
