More details of Isle of Man Monopoly board revealed

THE first set of places on the forthcoming Monopoly: Isle of Man board have been revealed.

 

Port Erin, Port St Mary and Niarbyl make up the first set of three places announced for the board game.

 

They will be the light blue set in the 'more moderately priced' part of the board.

 

Niarbyl Bay and Port Erin will cost M100, while Port St Mary is M120.

 

The game will be available to buy from October 26.

 
Graham Barnes, communications director of the board's makers Winning Moves UK, said: "Many of the sets are in themes and this one is a water and coastal theme.

 

"The fact they are in a modestly priced part of the board is because they so accessible and open to the public so we wouldn't want to price them out of anyone's reach!"

 

Winning Moves, manufacturers of this version of the Monopoly game under license from Hasbro, announced earlier in the year that there would be a game for the Island.

 

The public was invited to make suggestions for what should be included on the board.
