Have you ever wanted to own The Crooked House or live in Dudley Castle? Well now is your chance with Black Country Monopoly.
The game will take you round the Wrekin, up the cut and down the old ‘oss road. The vibrancy and community spirit that is so closely associated with the Black Country are captured in the game alongside the unique dialect and unmistakable landmarks which make the area instantly recognizable.
Everything down to the Community Chest and Chance cards have been altered to fit with the Black Country theme!
The creation of the game has been a lengthy process and making sure that we really captured the essence of such an iconic area on just a 20" x 20" board was no easy task.
The centre of the board has a nod to the rich history of the area, but Beth explains this was no easy task either: "As the Black Country is so rich in history it was essential for me that some elements of this were included in the centre of the game. The design is based around the Black Country flag designed by Gracie Sheppard, with images synonymous to the Black Country overlaying it. The area is internationally renowned for glass making so it absolutely had to feature on the centre alongside a famous Black Country colloquialism."
Infamous landmarks around the Borough have been cast into special edition playing pieces which are also available. Think iconic landmarks like Dudley Castle and the Titanic Anchor, which have been made by local company Thomas Dudley, we are extremely proud to add this unique and special touch to our game.
You could also buy an extra special token for £4.95 which came in a red bag.
