The special unit, "Fortification" is stated in the rules to give all defensive rolls a 8 sided die. Yet the printed chit says it is +1 to all defense dice.

Which is correct?

This has been answered elsewhere:

The printed power on the chip pieces is correct, and the text in the rules is wrong. We apologize for the confusion, as this was an oversight that was missed in the proofing process as the game went through development. Please play with the +1 to all Defense Dice power. We are addressing the error in the rules and it will be revised for future print runs.

Hello,

In my Hasbro 2017 edition, there is written in the rules and on the piece "Replace all 6-sided with 8-sided dice"

What is correct ? Former USAopoly informations ?

Interesting, that suggests USAopoly changed their mind on reconciling the discrepancy. Is your edition German or English?

Personally, in this case I would go with 8-sided dice, which creates more variability (1-8 v. 2-7 per die).

Well, if they went to the trouble of changing the counters in the updated edition, I would play it that way. After several plays in large (6-7 player) groups, I think there are a lot of things that should be house-ruled to make a better game, but that's a longer discussion!
