Just last week, we did talk about there was the Monopoly: Street Fighter Collector’s Edition, and here we are kicking off a brand new week with a non-fictional character getting his very own Monopoly edition – the computer pioneer known as Alan Turing. Celebrating Turing’s life, this special Monopoly edition will be accompanied by a facsimile of a hand-drawn version Turing that actually played on, now how about that? The board’s London landmarks, including its Community and Chance cards, are no longer there, but they have been replaced by places as well as events deemed to be important in Turing’s life.

You start off with your piece on Turing’s birthplace in Maida Vale, moving all the way to Hut 8 at Bletchley Park throughout the game. Google already purchased 1,000 of such sets and proceeded to donate them as part of a fundraising event for Bletchley Park. As for the board of this special edition of Monopoly itself, it does look somewhat ancient, being based on a hand-drawn variant of Monopoly that was done by William Newman all the way back in 1950.
