The City of Culture 2017

As part of the city of culture celebrations Monopoly launched the Hull edition on Friday 7th April 2017Hull Monopoly

Murray Hills Solicitors are very excited and proud to be part of the Hull Monopoly City of Culture edition with our own square, community chest card, box and board art.


The Humber Bridge is revealed as having landed on Mayfair, the game’s top iconic location. Hull City Hall, the Ferens Art Gallery, Hull Minster, Wilberforce House, the King Billy Statue, Hepworth’s Arcade, Hull City, Hull FC, Hull KR and the Maritime Museum are amongst other landmarks in the game.

 This is the first time ever in the world that all the Monopoly tokens have come about as a result of a public vote. The vote was held last year over a two month period and the six unique Monopoly playing tokens are

a trawler,

a toad,

a football,

a rugby ball,

a crown and

a ferris wheel.

The Chance and the Community Chest cards are customised too.

One sees Hull City get to Wembley! Another pays tribute to Hull’s ‘Bee Lady’ Jean Bishop. A third re-imburses players for getting stuck in bottleneck city centre traffic and a fourth rewards players for moving into their new home with Murray Hills Solicitors.
