The Royal Marines have produced this limited edition Monopoly Board to commemorate their 350th anniversary. During their long history, as an integral part of the Royal Navy, they have served with timeless distinction in every major conflict that the United Kingdom has been involved in, notably seeing active service every year since the outbreak of World War II, with the sole exception of 1968.
The Royal Marines are the first UK Armed Force to have their own Monopoly edition. The iconic game is Corps family themed throughout, with typical Royal Marines orientated game pieces, humorous alternatives to Chance and Community Chest and landmark positions that highlight life in the Corps. Thanks to an enterprising group of Royal Marines the cartoon character that has represented Monopoly since the mid-1930s has donned a green lid in place of his top hat for a hoofing new limited edition of the trading board game to mark the 350th anniversary of the Corps.
It was decided that the board would be a chronological yomp through 350 years of Corps history, with the Royal Marines Band Service represented with their own square and playing piece – a side drum. The other pieces are a combat boot, ammo liner, rigid raider, WP helmet and a four-tonne truck. The boxes will include a tri-fold insert explaining the relevance of the places on the board and a glossary of the bootneck slang on the "Orderly Room" and "Spoof".
Profits from the game went to Royal Marines charities.
