Number of versions: 1
Edition: December 19, 2009
So far I have got no indication Ecuador ever has had any native versions of
Monopoly published or Parker/Hasbro have ever sold their standard Spanish
Atlantic City editions in this country.
In any case the edition described below seems to be (one of the) first Monopoly
games in this country.
Monopoly Ecuador, ref.nrs. LA01730 (LA01753 / 2000001743126)
Juego de Compraventa de Inmuebles, de Parker Brothers ®
Dimensions of the box: 40.2 x 26.7x 6.7 cm

This collector's item is from the collection of Steve Amato - N.Y.
While in many countries the black, or blue,
Parker logo tends to disappear these days from the Hasbro
editions this first Monopoly edition is yet introduced in this country showing
the American blue Parker logo on the
colorfull lid. This also means the game has been produced in America. It almost
has the sizes of the standard white boxes of the Parker/Hasbro editions from
around the year 2000 in Europe and elsewhere, only 1.5 cm higher. However, its
content is that of the standard square green
boxes with the third die as it is announced by the yellow
sticker on the bottom of the box saying "Juega rápido con el Dado
Veloz" (Play faster with the Lucky die). The bottom
of the box only shows a large picture of the board with Mr. Monopoly on top and
the "introduction story" in a green
column. There is no reference to the new interactive ways of playing Monopoly by
From what is written on the bottom of the box it appears this edition to be
distributed in Mexico and Chileas well!

The most striking is the 3rd die, the red
socalled Lucky die, making the play faster. However, the game can still
be played the "old-fashioned" way, without this additional die.
This die shows the figures 1 - 2 and 3, a bus and 2x Mr.
Monopoly. The effect of this Lucky die, together with both white dice is:
|1, 2 or 3: Add up this with your throw of the white dice.|
|Bus: You may choose if you want to move on the basis of one or both white
|Mr.Monopoly: Proceed the number of pips of the white dice and carry out
what has to be done on that space. Further you go to the next unsold
property and buy it or let it be auctioned. If there is no more unsold
ground you proceed to the next property of an other player and pay the rent.|
|At double throw of the white dice the Luck die does not count.|
|When you throw 3 times one, two or three in 1 throw you may go to a space
|If you are sent to the prison, the Lucky die no longer participates.|
