Alan Turing (United Kingdom)


Codebreaker's beloved Monopoly pays him the ultimate compliment.

Centenary of maths genius' birth marked with new edition of the game he adored.

In this special edition of Monopoly, the squares around the board and revised Chance and Community Chest cards tell the story of Alan Turing’s life along with key elements of the original hand-drawn board, which the great mathematician played on with a young William in the early 1950s – and lost. The board has been developed by the Bletchley Park Trust, William Newman and Winning Moves, which creates new editions of Monopoly.

The original board was drawn around 1950 and was played upon by William and his brother Edward, but went missing around 1986 when William moved from the family house in Cambridge. It resurfaced in 2011 when the owners of the property discovered a box of William’s belongings, and he brought the board to Bletchley Park and donated it to the Museum. Since then, the Park and Winning Moves have been designing and developing the edition based on this original.

The commercial board has been kindly supported by Google, which has bought the first 1,000 units as a donation to the Bletchley Park Trust. The board is initially exclusively available from the Bletchley Park website, and from the Museum Shop.
