PARIS (CBS Connecticut/AP) — You can pass go, get out of jail free and collect real money.
The French version of Monopoly is celebrating its 80th year by slipping cash into 80 boxes of the game.
One box will have the full complement in real money — 20,580 euros ($23,600) — as well as the Monopoly money needed to actually play the game, one of the most popular in France. Another 79 boxes will have smaller amounts, according to Hasbro.
“We wanted to do something unique,” Hasbro France Brand Manager Florence Gaillard told the Agence France-Presse. “When we asked our French customers, they told us they wanted to find real money in their Monopoly boxes.”
The promotional offer runs from Feb. 2-March 30.
The Paris version lets players buy the Champs Elysees, four railroad stations and other famous avenues of the French capital.
