The ninth MONOPOLY World Championship took place October 3-6, 1992 at the Grand Hotel Esplanade in Berlin, Germany. This was a notable location because Monopoly had previously been banned behind the Iron Curtain. Joost van Orten of The Netherlands was the champion, beating a field of players from 28 nations plus the defending world champion. His prize was $15,140 (the amount of money then in a game of Monopoly) plus a gold medal.
Van Orten won the final game in 86 minutes, having made a 3-way trade that got him the Purples/Browns and the Light Blues as well as the Railroads.
