MONOPOLY Championship History Wiki

2009 World Championship

Fourteen MONOPOLY World Championships have been held with the most recent being the 2015 World Championship held September 8, 2015 in Macau. A championship that had been planned for 2021 has now been scrapped due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The 2009 and 2015 championships used the Speed Die with $1500 starting cash as the main ruleset, while prior world championships used classic rules. Additional rules for tournament gameplay have been added over the years to account for ambiguities in the official game rules.

Here are links to all of the wiki pages for previous World Championships.
