the great property trading board game now finds its
home in Somerset. You can now play the classic game
with the landmarks and locations which give the county

on the board are The Wurzels!
where once there was a Water Works (£150), now
Tommy, Pete and the rest of the band. Now that's a good
use of a brownfield site!
the picture (right) doesn't show it too well. The band
are in the top right hand corner in between the Yellow
'properties' of 'Cheddar Caves & Gorge' and 'Minehead',
and two places short of the 'Go To Jail' square. But
will have to shell out on a copy of the game to see
them in all their glory - and have your opportunity
to buy The Wurzels! What would Adge have said?
manufacturers, UK-based game firm Winning Moves, say
of the game: "In Somerset you will find a wonderful
mixture of countryside and coast. Inland there are many
hills on which to stroll and numerous areas of natural
beauty. The Levels and Moors form a backdrop to Glastonbury
Tor, centre of mystery and legend. Not far from Glastonbury
is Wells, England's smallest city with a magnificent
13th Century cathedral and a delightful market square.
The nearby caves at Wookey Hole and at Cheddar Gorge
will transport you back to prehistoric times while in
Taunton Vale lies the town of Taunton. Somerset's county
town has shopping, entertainment and a famous castle,
now the home of the Somerset County Museum. In a County
of such beauty, you'll find few squares on the board
you won't want to land on, so give the dice a roll and
see where the game of Monopoly takes you in Somerset,
The Jewel of the South West!" For more information
