Take A Chance On Halifax Or Huddersfield Monopoly

The winning location, which will be announced in the spring.

We could soon be building hotels on the site of the Piece Hall or the John Smith's Stadium.

That's because the makers of MONOPOLY say they want to bring out a Huddersfield or a Halifax version in time for Christmas.

But they'll only bring out ONE and need us to convince them which would be best.

The winning location, which will be announced in the spring, will be guaranteed to 'Pass GO' to land its' very own official MONOPOLY game which will hit shop shelves this October. 

"Each are extremely strong contenders," says Emma Lodwick, from makers Winning Moves UK,  "We began with more than 20 locations from the North of England. These are the shortlisted final two.

"The factors that will decide are two-fold. Firstly the strength of popular feeling and pride for Halifax or Huddersfield. Secondly, the diversity and beauty of potential landmarks to fill the game."

"We want each place to tell us why they would like Pass GO - tell us about their beautiful landmarks that would star in the edition!".

So, for example, Mayfair  could be Huddersfield's John Smith's Stadium or Halifax's Eureka!. Huddersfield Town Hall or Halifax's Grade 1 Listed Peace Hall could land on Whitehall.

Other customised features will see the four train stations from the London original being handed over to a 'travel' theme.  

Also, many of the Chance and Community Chest cards will be heavily customised too. One could get players stuck on the M62!

Votes to: yorkshire@6starpr.co.uk or by traditional post to YORKSHIRE MONOPOLY, Winning Moves UK, 7 Praed Street, London W2 1NJ.

Closing date is: 23.59pm, 3rd March 2017. An announcement of the winning location will be made soon after polls close.
