If board games are a big deal in your house, especially over Christmas, this is the one present you need to invest in and get under the tree this year….a personalised Monopoly board. For the first time ever in the UK, a Monopoly personalisation station has opened inside the toy department on the 4th floor of Selfridges, meaning you can go and create a personalised version of the game.
Not only can you add your family name to the board in between all those famous London landmarks, but you can pick gold or silver tokens for each person so there’ll be no more fighting over who gets to be the dog and who gets to be the hat (RIP iron, you were always our go-to token). What we can’t promise is that there won’t be arguments over everything else, especially if you’re playing with extra competitive people who’ve all indulged during the Christmas dinner, but apparently buying up the orange properties is the way to go because players land on them more often because of the Chance cards.
The boards cost £35 and are super simple to buy – once you’re in-store, you follow the QR code to a web app to input your personalised info and you just wait for it to be put together. And if you can’t make it down to Selfridges to get it in person, you can order a personalised board online. Get ready to pass go and collect your 200 Dollars.
Open until Sun 18th December 2021
