Anglesey Monopoly Game

Anglesey Monopoly Game

World famous board game Monopoly will launch a special island edition this year. Vote for your favourite Anglesey landmark today and you may see it on the board after October.


This is when Winning Moves, manufacturer of the Monopoly game board, estimates the product will be ready to hit the High Street and online sales venues.

So forget Mayfair, Pentonville Road, Old Kent Road and Liverpool Street Station, now is the time to look forward to some new names to stand out.

How about seeing our very own South Stack Lighthouse or UNESCO World Heritage site Beaumaris Castle or perhaps Llynnon Mill at Llanddeusant, the last working windmill in Wales.

With the globally recognised, iconic, grade II listed, Holyhead Breakwater forming the historic Holyhead harbour in West Anglesey, there is a case for including Newry Beach, now under threat if a proposed development goes ahead.

With such a beautiful coastline, now with its officially recognised 125-mile long Anglesey Coastal path, the island also has a number of top quality, award winning beaches which could feature on this special version of the Monopoly game.

Among the island beaches which could be considered are Llanddwyn beach, where Demi Moore filmed "Half Light" and Trearddur Bay, a great location for sailing and where Price William and Catherine Middleton recently launched a new inshore lifeboat.

If you are looking to include a wildlife theme, two possibilities are Newborough Forest and Cestyll Garden, near to Cemaes Bay on the north side of the island.

An industrial theme could include the airport at RAF Valley where Prince William works as a helicopter search and rescue pilot, Holyhead Port with its ferry links to Dublin, and Wylfa Nuclear Power Station.

Remember you must send in your entries by the closing date which is 12 noon on 14 May 2011.

Penrhos nature reserve is under threat from property developers Land and Lakes. If they get there way the nature reserve will cease to exist. There are 2 petitions you can sign to to help us save it: http://goo.gl/dbvXU

If enough people vote for South Stack/Elin's Tower, might Arriva give us back the bus service there?

Where do we vote?
by: Liz Thomas

This is a great idea and a lot of fun but how do we place our votes. Perhaps I'm being dim but I cannot see any link to click.

My votes would go to Llynon Mill, South Stack and Rhoscolyn Beach. Oh, and Penrhos Nature reserve which was my childhood playground, long before the building of Anglesey Aluminum!

a play on Mon-opoly
by: Anonymous

the Welsh name for Anglesey is Ynys Mon or just Mon. So i guess it's an extension of that, so we get Mon-opoly! cool isn't it
