Alan Turing Monopoly Board


Sixty years ago, William Newman designed an alternate Monopoly game for Alan Turing. Now a version of that game is for sale!  

In this special edition of Monopoly, the squares around the board and revised Chance and Community Chest cards tell the story of Alan Turing’s life along with key elements of the original hand-drawn board, which the great mathematician played on with a young William in the early 1950s – and lost. The board has been developed by the Bletchley Park Trust, William Newman and Winning Moves, which creates new editions of Monopoly.

The Special Edition Turing Monopoly will be released in November and can be pre-ordered now. Link -via Boing Boing
