Description

It follows the original 1998 Edinburgh edition, which was the first Monopoly board themed around a UK city outside of London. The board game's maker Winning Moves UK also said there is a good chance the traditional Scottie dog playing piece will be tweaked to resemble Edinburgh's beloved Greyfriars Bobby.

What's Next?

Other mooted possibilities include a panda, a comedic mask, a rugby ball, a miniature Sir Chris Hoy and a miniature Edinburgh Castle, with a public vote to ultimately decide which six will be made. The Monopoly streets will all be Edinburgh landmarks and also new will be the chance and community chest cards which will be very heavily Edinburgh-themed. The special edition of the popular board game will take players around the Scottish capital as they gobble up property, get put in jail and financially ruin family members at Christmas. Mr Thompson added: "We are expecting to be very spoilt for choice for landmarks to fill this board. Monopoly: Edinburgh Edition is a version of the classic boardgame first published in 1998 by Winning Moves Games and featuring the city of Edinburgh, capital of Scotland.

Amongst the tokens could be a bust of Edinburgh's most famous son Sir Sean Connery - or perhaps the first woman to sit in Bute House, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon. It will be the first time a Scottish city has received the honour of its own tokens as well as its own board. For this new version, the traditional Monopoly playing tokens such as the racing car, top hat and boot will get the boot to be replaced by new Auld Reekie-inspired items. Since the first Edinburgh edition 20 years ago, several versions based on other Scottish cities have been released, including Glasgow, Aberdeen, Dundee and - most recently - Stirling. Winning Moves UK's Benjamin Thompson said: "Scotland's capital city has grown and changed enormously, now with its own parliament and a whole new generation of people.
