The day before the World Championship, a game for the media was held inside a bank where they played with actual US currency instead of the MONOPOLY money.
Other preliminary games were held in the days leading up to the World Championship to determine who would be the Eastern Regional Champion. Lee Weisenthal of Detroit, MI, who was then head of the US Monopoly Association, served as the Judge.
