Islay Monopoly

Islay Fun in stencil

No, this post isn't about the Bruichladdich acquisition by Remy Cointreau, I think everything relevant has been said somewhere else already. I can't remember when I last played Monopoly, although I think it's quite a long time ago now. Back then I think there was only one version of it, since then a lot of localised versions have appeared. You guessed it, now there's also an Islay version:

I'm not sure where I first came across it, I think probably on Twitter a few days ago. This morning I spotted it again with a lot more details, which really got me to look at it. C & E Roy's The Celtic House in Bowmore is the driving force behind it, you can read an interview with the family on how they developed the game on the World of Monopoly website. I love the attention to detail with some really nice graphics and while they are not the first in Scotland it is easily the best looking of the ones I've seen.

You can buy the Islay Monopoly game on The Celtic House website (as well as in the store of course if you're on Islay) and also now find The Celtic House on Facebook. Probably a good game to have in the house for a rainy summer day ;-)

Sharing and discussing. Opening up the discussion. Have your say:
