Is there a British version of Monopoly?
The Classic British version of Monopoly has a board based on streets in London. The board was designed in 1935 and became the standard Monopoly board not just for the UK, but also for English-speaking Commonwealth countries such as Australia, New Zealand, Canada and South Africa.
Now, those countries all have their own versions of Monopoly, but the British version using the London properties remains the standard one for the UK.
Is there a Scottish version of Monopoly?
The Scottish edition of Monopoly was launched in 2001, featuring a board themed like the Scottish flag and Scottish towns and cities for each of the properties. There are also regional Scottish Monopoly versions based on places like Glasgow, Aberdeen and Dundee.
If you walk into a toy store in Scotland and buy a standard Monopoly set, you’ll still get the one where the Monopoly street names are based on London locations. The Scotland one is considered a special edition.
You can sometimes find it in tourism shops, but the easiest place to buy it is online.
Which English town gets its own version of Monopoly?
Lots of British places have their own versions of Monopoly. These include not only big cities like Manchester, Birmingham and Glasgow but counties like Cornwall, Lancashire and Yorkshire and even small towns like Maidstone, Oundle and East Grinstead.
There are also some football club versions of Monopoly – so you can have a Manchester Monopoly game based on the city, and then a Manchester United game based on the football team.
How many squares are on a Monopoly board UK?
Each traditional Monopoly board has 40 squares. This is true not only of the UK Monopoly board but also of Classic Monopoly in other countries. Some special editions of Monopoly may have more or less than 40 squares.

The property colours and values remain the same, but players will usually say pounds instead of dollars when talking about Monopoly money.
