Where can I buy a switzerland version of monopoly?

Hey,

I live in Baden but it's no problem for me to travel to other cities (Zurich - Basel), does anyone know of a specific store or store chain that carries a Switzerland version of monopoly or somewhere I could just order online?

Thank you!

Patrick

Re: Where can I buy a switzerland version of monopoly?

Any board-game shop should have it, maybe also check if you have any Franz-Karl-Weber shops nearby... but it should be fairly easy to track down tbh

Cheers

I haven't seen a Switzerland version which is recent (m-i-l has one from the 60's), I have seen a Basel version here at Thalia books and in the game department of some departments stores and toy stores.

Many places. I've seen it in Ex-Libris, Orelli Fussli & the Swiss toy store (Karl Heinz something or another..)

Some information about the Swiss version of Monopoly here.

Quote:
A very typical feature for the Swiss editions till about 1980 are the tokens, viz.: pig - cat - bottle - moneybag - car - four-leaf clover and others


CHF72.90 at this store.

Re: Where can I buy a switzerland version of monopoly?

Fascinating thread ... I never realized that there were so many national editions.

The French Wikipideia has the layout of the board of many versions, including the Swiss one. The two most expensive pieces of real estate are Place St-François in Lausanne and Paradenplatz in Zürich. No Rue du Rhône!!

Re: Where can I buy a switzerland version of monopoly?

I LOVE Monopoly and purchased a Swiss version at Manor...brace yourself as its the most expensive board game that I've ever purchased! Good fun though with the Swiss properties and Community Chess/Chance Cards in German!

Thanks for all the replies! I think I'll go buy one from Manor since it's the most convenient.

Why would you want that? Boardwalk would be worth 17,000,000CHF.

I played the Swiss version. Not only did I have to pay rent, but I had to find a nachmieter before I could move again.

Re: Where can I buy a switzerland version of monopoly?

I'm pretty sure I also saw a Migros version in the Migros at Zurich airport, when my cousin's in-bound flight was delayed by over an hour ... can't recall property titles, though.
