France is celebrating Monopoly by selling sets with real money

Saint-Avold (France) (AFP) - There can't be a Monopoly fan in the world who has not dreamed of one day playing a round with real money.

Now, for the 80th anniversary of the game's first appearance in France, manufacturers are providing exactly that -- at least for 80 lucky buyers.

Only one set will land the major jackpot, in which every game note is replaced by real money -- for a total windfall of 20,580 euros ($23,268).

In addition, 10 sets will contain five real 20-euro notes, two 50-euro notes and one 100-euro note.

A lesser prize can be scooped in 69 sets, which will have five 10-euro notes and five 20-euro notes.

"We wanted to do something unique," said Florence Gaillard, brand manager at Hasbro France, which rolled out the prize sets from Monday.

"When we asked our French customers, they told us they wanted to find real money in their Monopoly boxes," she added.

The operation to switch the notes was carried out in deadly secret, in the small eastern town of Creutzwald, where the games are packed up before being shipped throughout France.

"First of all, it wasn't easy to get the notes. They had to be escorted discreetly," explained Gaillard.

Appropriately for a game where players try to cruelly bankrupt their opponents, Monopoly even roped in a bailiff to count and re-count the real notes.

"When they asked me, I was giddy as a child," said the bailiff in question, Patrice Wimmer, an aficionado of the game.

- 'Anyone can play' -
However, they discovered a problem: the sets with the real notes expanded the box ever so slightly, making the packaging out of kilter -- a tell-tale sign.

As for the weight, there was no discernable difference between the real notes and the fake money.

"The difference is marginal, unless you turn up at the shop with precision scales," said Wimmer.

The board game of Monopoly was created after the Great Depression in the United States and has been tearing families and friends apart ever since.

Fiercely competitive, the object of the game is to buy property around the board of varying quality, then build "houses" and "hotels" on one's property empire, charging opponents rent if they are unfortunate enough to land on your square.

The winner is the last person standing after everyone else is left penniless and destitute.

Even a short game can last several hours as the eventual winner grinds down opponents note by note until they have nothing left.

The longest game in history lasted 70 straight days, according to the Hasbro website.

"The rules are simple, everyone knows them, anyone can play," said Gaillard.

Hasbro says its money-spinning game is available in 111 countries and in 43 languages.

There are 500,000 sets sold each year in France alone.

The 80 lucky sets are hidden within 30,000 boxes of different types of game -- classic, junior, electronic and "vintage".

假買賣真賺錢!玩具商慶週年大富翁裡藏真鈔

玩虛擬買賣遊戲「大富翁」,還可以真的賺些錢!全球第二大玩具生產商「孩之寶」(Hasbro)法國分部為了慶祝成立80週年,將真正的鈔票混入自家產品大富翁遊戲裡面,單盒金額最高達2萬3268美元(約台幣73萬元)!

玩具商「孩之寶」法國分部於1991年收購大富翁(Monopoly)遊戲製造商「Parker Brothers」後,便成全球第二大玩具生產商。近日公司為慶80週年,宣布他們將真的歐元現鈔混入遊戲用假鈔中,回饋消費者。

品牌經理佛羅倫斯(Florence Gaillard)表示,此次「頭獎」將會是一盒內含2萬3268美元的大富翁遊戲盒,另外有10盒內有340美元現金(約台幣1萬700元),和69盒170美元現金(約台幣5300元)。

「我們想用最特別的方式慶祝80週年。」佛羅倫斯說,這次構想靈感來自於一名顧客的半開玩笑心聲,「他告訴我們,他們不想玩假錢,想玩真鈔。」

大富翁遊戲創造於美國大蕭條後期,從那時開始變風靡在家庭和朋友間,至今已遍佈全球111國、譯成43種語言。光是法國,每年就售出50萬套。遊戲目的是玩家間競爭購買房地產、建造房屋和飯店,還可收取對手租金,贏家便是擁有最多財富的那一人。根據孩之寶網站,史上最長遊戲紀錄曾持續70天才分出勝負。


為什麼這邊只有什麼麥當勞大富翁!(翻桌)
