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.

Monopoly Surprise – Series 1 is currently £3 at ARGOS

Monopoly Surprise – Community Chest is currently £8 at ARGOS

By using the following guide to avoid duplicates – a full set of both series would currently cost £42. It appears there is no plan for another series.

Series 1

On the underside of the box, a code is printed above the barcode – ending with TT. The number before the TT indicates the contents (the number ranges from 1 to 6).
