New Token Line Up
Four Monopoly Deluxe editions have been produced for the UK audience since 1972. A long-box in 1972, a smaller edition in 1986 and 1998 and a final edition in 2003. This collection features all four of these editions plus a special adaptation of the 1972 edition created for the British Monopoly Championship.
The upgrades usually consist of gold tokens, a title deed carrousel, premium banking tray and wooden houses & hotels.

This is the latest ‘Monopoly Deluxe’. Although other ‘Deluxe’-style games have been produced since – such as the Anniversary editions.
From 1957, the Box & Board editions were phased out with a long box which contained the board as well as the pieces. Each edition sees slight variance – mainly with regards to the Chance & Community Chest cards. The photographs best show the evolution. Once again all dates are estimates. The following six tokens would also become a mainstay of the Long Red Box – with the introduction of the Dog
Last standard Monopoly edition to feature the 6 flat metal tokens, as well as wooden houses and hotels.
The six tokens return to the line-up. Although, I have also seen red long box editions with the previous six flat metal tokens used a few years prior.
The board is unusually folded between Marylebone and Liverpool St Station across the Monopoly logo, as opposed to the usual Kings Cross to Fenchurch St Station.
There are very few differences between this edition and the previous 1972 edition. Both contains the same pieces and design. Before 1984, John Waddington Ltd was rebranded to Waddingtons House of Games. The box reflects this change even if the design remains identical. Now ‘Manufactured in England’ rather than ‘Manufactured in Great Britain’. Also interesting is that the board has changed back to being folded through Marylebone and Liverpool St Station, and is now folded through Kings Cross and Fenchurch St Station.
