About this deal

A surprising choice for the Monopoly board, Fenchurch Street is one of the smallest railway terminals in London with only four platforms and no direct interchange with the London Underground. A photo of Oxford Street in 1935, hung with decorations for George V's silver jubilee, shows it as crowded as it is now, buses clogging the road, pedestrians packing the pavement.

We are standing in front of the stretch of three great members' clubs – the Athenaeum, the Travellers and the Reform, names that summon a bygone age. There is no actual Marlborough Street in this part of London; the square on the board was mis-named after the Marlborough Street Magistrates Court. From west to east the road runs as Euston Road to King's Cross, then Pentonville Road to the Angel, Islington. Since Vine Street has no pubs, a typical Monopoly pub crawl visits the connecting Swallow Street instead. While the original Monopoly board was based on streets in Atlantic City, the UK Monopoly board features streets in London.

In 1973, San Francisco State University Professor Ralph Anspach took his hatred of the game to a new level. I was concerned that one of the boxes had been opened as one booster box was fully sealed, and the other was unwrapped. What White and I plan to do is roll our way round the board to discover how some of the areas of the London Monopoly board have changed in the intervening three-quarters of a century. Choose your token, place it on GO and roll the dice to own it all There can be only one winner in the Monopoly game.

Incorporating new themed boards and special editions keep the game relevant to new players constantly. In 1935 the Strand is still one of the most important streets in London in terms of its perception abroad and its place in Londoners' hearts," White says. The Scottish edition of Monopoly was launched in 2001, featuring a board themed like the Scottish flag and Scottish towns and cities for each of the properties. Anspach believed the game taught players that monopolies in business were a good thing when they are actually harmful to the free-enterprise system.All three of the Pink Monopoly properties – Pall Mall, Whitehall, and Northumberland Avenue – connect at Trafalgar Square. But Victor Watson, Waddington's general manager, got his first copy on a Friday in December 1935, and by the Monday he'd signed a deal with Parker Brothers to license the game for the UK. The theatres host Andrew Lloyd Webber's latest and other musicals, though there seem to be no signs of the prostitutes that White tells me were commonplace in the first half of the 20th century. Based on the 1906 game The Landlord’s Game, the original US version of Monopoly was created in 1933, which launched Parker Brothers distribution of a version in 1935. Did you know that some people like to attempt a Monopoly pub crawl around the London streets, visiting a pub in each of the Monopoly London locations?
