To celebrate a special anniversary of the popular board game Monopoly, Hasbro is raising the stakes and releasing special editions that contain real money.

For the 80th anniversary of its debut in France, 80 sets containing cash will be sold in the country - that's more than $20K for a game that costs $15 at Walmart. Additionally, another 80 will contain a combo of real and fake money.

The company explained, "We wanted to do something unique. When we asked our French customers, they told us they wanted to find real money in their Monopoly boxes." Ask and you shall receive.

Speaking of Monopoly, have you seen the man who has pretty much every version, ever?

Sniffing out the dough won't be an easy task, though. There are 500,000 sets sold every year in France.

The special boxes are hidden within 30,000 different types of Monopoly games, including classic, junior, electronic and vintage. The money boxes also weigh the same as regular sets, but they will be slightly bigger.

Looks like the world's most competitive (yet family-friendly) game just got a whole lot fiercer.

What would you do with your real-life Monopoly money if you found a box? Share your thoughts in the comments.
