Yorkshire Dales Edition of Monopoly launched

Dales Radio Podcasts

Tuesday, 26 March 2024 - 4 minutes

This unique game hits the shops today and here we catch up with the UK's only world Monopoly Champion Jason Bunn with a few top tips to help you win the game!

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 Cover and Masham Market  – with in all, 30+ Dales landmarks and organisations featuring in the game.

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 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.”
