Brand New Yorkshire Dales Monopoly game revealed

Dales Radio - pride of place on the new Yorkshire Dales Monopoly Game

A brand-new official MONOPOLY: Yorkshire Dales Edition - featuring the great and good of the region, including Dales Radio - has been launched.

Winning Moves UK - an official MONOPOLY maker - has produced the brand-new MONOPOLY: Yorkshire Dales Edition board game, under license from Hasbro, a leading toy and game company. Winning Moves UK makes MONOPOLY editions for places all over the world, including high-profile popular tourist places, such as Palm Beach, Dubai and The Hamptons.

When news of the game was announced last year, the public was invited to suggest Dales landmarks and organisations to feature on the board.   Getting to land on ‘Mayfair,’ the game’s top-ranking space, is Bolton Abbey.  At the other end of the board, ‘Old Kent Road’ - the game’s most affordable square - is Aysgarth Falls, on account of it being a very high-profile historic landmark.

In between are leading Dales favourites, including Fountains Abbey, Malham Cove and Masham Market  – with in all, 30+ Dales landmarks and organisations featuring in the game including Dales Radio.

Julian from Dales Radio was there to see the new game revealed and meet Mr Monopoly.  Plus a chance to meet the UK's only world Monopoly champion, Jason Bunn and you can hear him over on our podcasts.

 “The response from the public to MONOPOLY: Yorkshire Dales Edition has been overwhelming,” says John Keen-Tomlinson, Custom Games Executive at Winning Moves UK. “A very big thank you to everyone who sent in nominations and congratulations to everyone featured in the game.”

World Monopoly Champion Jason Bunn & Mr Monopoly launch the new game at The Devonshire at Bolton Abbey.

 In addition to the bespoke squares, all of the tokens are customised, replacing the traditional MONOPOLY counters with – amongst others – a Craven ram and a slab of Wensleydale cheese.

The MONOPOLY: Yorkshire Dales Edition is available to purchase now at Waterstones, House and Home and extensively online, including at Booghe.co.uk and Amazon.co.uk
