THE Cotswolds is getting its very own official Monopoly game, and suggestions are invited for which places should be included.
The new game will see 30+ Cotswolds landmarks and favourites featuring on all of the famous multi-coloured Monopoly squares on the new board.
Landmarks likely to feature include Cirencester Amphitheatre which, because of its age, could be ‘Old Kent Road’; the Model Village in Bourton on the Water; the much-trodden Cotswold Way Footpath – and maybe for the other end of the board and Mayfair, Highgrove House, which would be a snip at just four hundred Monopoly dollars.
But the makers of the game – Hasbro – are inviting everyone to suggest landmarks to feature in the game.
Cllr Joe Harris, leader of Cotswold District Council, said: “We’re thrilled the Cotswolds will be the next area of the UK to be immortalised in the form of its very own Monopoly.
“It’s a beautiful place steeped in history and we hope that this will mean many more people ‘Pass GO’ through the area.
“I’d encourage everyone in the Cotswolds to make suggestions on what they would like to see in the game so that we can create a board that represents the entire district.”
Nominations can be sent by email to: email@example.com; via the official Monopoly: Cotswolds Edition game Facebook page; or by post to: Monopoly: Cotswolds Edition game, Winning Moves UK, 7 Praed Street, London W2 1NJ.
The deadline for nominations is 11.59pm on August 31.
