The search is now underway for Guildford’s very own – and FIRST EVER –  official MONOPOLY champ.

Guildford’s White Lion Walk Shopping Centre is staging an official Guildford MONOPOLY Championships in the school’s half-term holidays next month.

The Championships will be played exclusively on the brand new Guildford MONOPOLY board, which has been all the rage since was launched last October. Since then it has been reported as being one of “the fastest selling” versions of MONOPOLY anywhere in the world.

The event will be open to youngsters as well as adults.

The victor will get to go on a £200 fun shopping spree at White Lion Walk, as well as get an official signed Guildford MONOPOLY board.

The tournament is free to enter to anyone aged eight and upwards – and there are up to 16 places up for grabs.

Those wishing to enter to play should simply email stating their full name, age and contact details.

The deadline for registration is 5th February 2017 (T&C’s apply – see for full details).

The successful players, up to 16, will be selected at random by White Lion Walk’s Centre Management Team. All players will be required to attend the tournament on Saturday 18th February 2017.

Steve Cotney, Centre Manager at White Lion Walk, says:

“We are incredibly proud to part of the MONOPOLY: Guildford Edition. The original London edition has been played for years and is loved by every generation, so having the game produced specially for Guildford is a real coup for the town.

“We are very excited about hosting the town’s first ever tournament at the centre next month and cannot wait to see who will be crowned Guildford’s first ever MONOPOLY champion.”

Jamie Lamont, CUSTOM GAMES EXECUTIVE at WINNING MOVES UK – developers of the board under license from MONOPOLY owners Hasbro – added:

“We are delighted the White Lion Walk Shopping Centre is hosting this event. We shall shortly be giving some expert tips on how to be a MONOPOLY champ. So please keep watching this space.” The new board features the great and the good of the town, including Cathedral, Caste, University, rail station, G Live and all the great and the good of the town. It has been all the rage since we launched it and we would like to thank the town for getting behind the board and supporting it so enthusiastically.”
