The board is largely constructed in themes. There is a heritage set, a leisure one, an educational set and also a tourist one.The four train stations from the London Monopoly original take on a ‘travel’ theme.
Canterbury become the very first Kent location to land its own official board, the honour of opening the first game fell to eight-year-old Leila Webb and her brother Lucas, 10, from Canterbury - as well as a third primary schoolchild from the city. All three won a competition to be ‘VIPs’ (Very Important Players) for the day.
There is a problem with the first print run of this edition where Winning Moves U.K. bosses have accidentally used a picture of Rochester Castle (from the Medway) on the board. Therefore all you collector's out there will be wanting two copies!
