Electronic Banking & Zapped

  • Zapped (2012)

Monopoly Zapped requires an iPad to work. It acts like the bank.

Randomly throughout the game, a player could receive a mini-game to take part in. Depending on how the player does, a prize may be given.

The playing pieces have been given a more futuristic look. The houses and hotels are now translucent green and red, respectively. Also, the tokens are strips of transparent plastic with a coloured engraving of the traditional token.

Monopoly Here & Now World Edition (2015)

The World Edition variant is unlike other Here & Now products; to win, one must fill up their ‘passport’ with stamps. Stamps are this edition’s title deeds and the more expensive the property the larger the stamp.

The properties are holiday destinations ranging from Madrid to Hong Kong or Lima; these were decided by players in a Buzzfeed poll.

In addition, like other quick versions of Monopoly, the Sneaky Swapper returns. Rolling one of these allows you to swap your most recently bought property for another player’s stamp.

New Tokens (2015)

New colours for Chance and Here & Now cards. Board with a new lighter blue design. Four new tokens.

Monopoly Junior – Card Game (Shuffle)

Monopoly Junior (Card Game) was produced by Cartamundi in 2015. It was released in the Shuffle range, and had a companion app which introduced Chance Cards.

Each player takes one of the token cards and places it in front of them. The deck is shuffled and divided into four equal piles.

On your turn, draw a card from any pile. Property cards go in front of you, money goes into your bank. Also, on your turn you may move your token to any of your properties.

If you draw a property colour which another player has their token on, you must pay rent. Change is not given. If multiple players have their token on that colour, you choose which one player to pay.

You may also pay to ‘sneak a peek’ for £1, £2 or £3. The amount paid allows you to look at the top card from 1 to 3 piles. You may then keep one of them cards as your turn, or draw from a pile not yet inspected.

The game ends when a player has three complete property sets (a set only contains two). That player is declared the winner.
