Ten sets will contain five 20-euro bills, two 50-euro bills and one 100-euro note, for a total of 300 euros, or around $370. Finally, 69 sets will contain five 10-euro bills and five 20-euro bills (150 euros or about $170).

If you want to try and get your hands on one of these games, they were secretly released on Monday among 30,000 other sets of of Monopoly, Monopoly Junior, and electronic and vintage varieties. Hasbro noted the sets are virtually indistinguishable by weight, although there will be a tiny difference in thickness thanks to the euro size – so you may want to grab a ruler.
