The official Aberdeen MONOPOLY game hits shop shelves this morning.
And .. drum roll .. we get to star in it !
The Museum occupies a light blue coloured space in this brand new edition, which was being launched this morning at a red-carpet ceremony at the Aberdeen Art Gallery. (8th November 2019)
Amongst the very many leading city landmarks that get to feature in the game include us, the art gallery, Marischal College, Aberdeen FC, Castlegate, the William Wallace Statue, Union Street and pretty much all the great and good of Aberdeen!
In this new unique version of MONOPOLY whilst the rules, money denomination spirit of MONOPOLY stay exactly the same .. the spaces ALL become exclusively Aberdeen landmarks and favourites. And the tokens are city themed too. OUT go the classics like the Scottie Dog and boot – literally given the boot. IN come angus the bull, oil rig, leopard and more.
Very many of the Chance and Community Chest cards are customised too. One card pays players for ‘leading out Aberdeen FC in a European Cup final, alongside Angus the Bull!’.
Winning Moves UK are the makers of this version under official license from MONOPOLY owners, Hasbro.
The game is on sale from 10am today at all good book and toy stores, including Waterstones, WH Smith and The Works – and very widely online, including on Amazon.
