* Advance to Boardwalk board game: Focusing mainly
on building the most hotels along the Boardwalk.

out of print. Basically a rummy-style card game based
on scoring points by completing color group sections
of the game board.

by Winning Moves Games under license from Hasbro.
Similar, but decidedly more complex, gameplay to the
Express Monopoly card game.
* Free Parking card game: A more complex card game
released by Parker Brothers, with several similarities
to the card game Mille Bornes. Uses cards to either
add time to parking meters, or spend the time doing
activities to earn points. Includes a deck of Second
Chance cards that further alter gameplay. (Two editions
were made; minor differences in card art and Second
Chance cards in each edition.)
* Don't Go To Jail: Dice Game originally released
by Parker Brothers; roll combinations of dice to create
color groups for points before rolling the words "GO"
"TO" and "JAIL" (which forfeits
all earned points for the turn).
* Monopoly Express: A deluxe, travel-able edition
re-release of Don't Go To Jail, replacing the word
dice with "Officer Jones" dice and adding
an eleventh die, Houses & Hotels, and a self-contained
game container/dice roller & keeper.

of the above game, that adds wagering to the gameplay.
* Here and Now Electronic Edition: Destroys the need
for money, using credit cards instead. (Credit: Wikipedia).
