At the time of the announcement the makers invited the public to send in votes and suggestions for unique town-themed spaces and cards.

Winning Moves UK also reports that the game is coming together “very nicely”.

The edition will be themed in sets. From heritage to leisure, shopping to education, business to sport, charity to culture  – and more. The game will see famous locations such as Mayfair and Park Lane updated to iconic landmarks of Shrewsbury.

Winning Moves UK Custom Games Executive Jake Houghton said:-

“The game will feature the great and the good of Shrewsbury, A huge thank you to everyone who sent in votes. The game is taking fantastic shape.”

The mechanic for being a Monopoly Shrewsbury VIP is: ‘Why I love Shrewsbury’. Poems, ditties, one-liners, videos and montage photos will all be equally considered.

Jake Houghton added:-

“The most inventive and creative entry will win. We are totally open-minded as to the form the entries should take.

“Retailers have been putting huge advance orders even though the game won’t hit the shops until this October, in time for Christmas.”
