Did the car land on a relevant square? Did someone else? Is a specific property relevant? Did the relevant thing happen near the end of the game? The start? During setup? see below
The famous Monopoly lateral puzzle relevant?
well, a little, yes...
Is there a car token in the German version?
NO (at the time of the puzzle, that is)
If yes, is it relevantly different from the car token of the standard version?
In the 1990's, Alice was supposed to translate a couple of Paul Sloane's Lateral Puzzle books into German. Among many nearly-impossible-to-translate puzzles was, quite unexpected, the Monopoly puzzle "A man pushes his car up to a hotel..." - because at the time, most Germans have never heard of a Monopoly car.
Prior to 2000, the standard German Monopoly sets came with ordinary playing pieces intead of the classic Monopoly tokens, apparently because the publisher intended to save on production costs. (They also had multplied all montary figures by 20, which might have been about the Dollar-Mark exchange rate at one time, but reminds me a bit of the Monty Python "buying a bed" sketch where one assistant multplies everything by ten and the other one puts a paper bag over his head whenever someone says Mattress)
of course, they are quite a lot of lateral puzzles that are hard to translate, which might be the reason why the German LTP books were discontinued. And I don't really know if the books were translated by a single person and if he or she was called Alice. But the Monopoly puzzle was in there...
