Madness Hits Campus
From mid-May a trip around campus could cost you over £5,000
– that is if you buy one of the new limited edition University
of Birmingham Monopoly games.
Featuring images from each School and many other familiar
campus locations including Old Joe, the Guild and the University
train station, the boards have been designed by the Design
and Publications team and Winning Moves, the company behind
the City of Birmingham Monopoly game.
Winning Moves were especially keen to produce this edition
as the company has a special connection with the University.
Tom Liddell, Managing Director of Winning Moves, studied Economics
at the University, graduating in 1994. Winning Moves was established
only four years later.
While some features of the game remain the same: free parking
and the possibility of being sent to jail, many have been
adapted to reflect campus life.
Chest and Chance cards will fine you for a hangover after
a night in the Guild bar, or reward you for making a donation
to the Development and Alumni Office.
In addition to the regular sized game boards, Winning Moves
will also be
presenting the University with a giant board to be wall mounted.
Possible locations for the board are being investigated at
the moment, with University Centre being the preferred choice.
The games will be on sale from Aston Webb reception priced
at £24.99 from mid May – so look out for the posters
