The eighth MONOPOLY World Championship took place October 16, 1988 at Park Lane Hotel in London, England. Ikuo Hyakuta of Japan was the champion over a field of 30 players from 29 countries.[1] His prize was $15,140 (the amount of money then in a set of Monopoly) and a personal computer. The final game took 2 1/4 hours to complete, the longest final to date.[2] The tournament consisted of three preliminary 90-minute rounds with five players per table. The five players with the greatest combined total assets across all of the preliminary rounds advanced to the final.

A jeweled Monopoly set valued at 1 million pounds by designer Sidney Mobell was on display at this tournament.
