News from our partner Winning Moves UK

Next week (Wednesday 17 July 2019) the very first space to emerge as ‘Passing GO’ on the brand new Shrewsbury MONOPOLY Edition game will be revealed.

It will be a “leading” Shrewsbury charity, which will get to star on a Community Chest space all of its own when the game is unveiled in November.

And because there is no price tag on the MONOPOLY Community Chest spaces then it means the charity will be as priceless in the  MONOPOLY game as in real life!

Several charities will get to ‘Pass GO’ following a public vote. In all more than 30 town landmarks and organisations will star in the game in place of the classic original MONOPOLY streets like Mayfair, Park Lane and Oxford Street.

Jake Houghton, Custom Games Executive at Winning Moves UK, makers of the new unique edition under license from Hasbro, said:

“The game will feature the great and the good of Shrewsbury.

“Next week we shall be announcing the very first ‘resident’ to take up occupancy in this special edition. It is a leading Shrewsbury charity. Several charities in all will be starring in the game, following a hugely popular public vote. A very big thank you to everyone who voted.”
