18.02.12: A new Limited Edition St Mawes Monopoly is being launched in March and Roseland Online readers have been given exclusive pre-ordering status before the planned event at the Hotel Tresanton. The game has been created for everyone who loves St Mawes and the Roseland peninsula and is a partnership between Tim and Amelia Whitaker of Nearwater, and Hotel Tresanton owner, Olga Polizzi.
Tim and Amelia told Roseland Online, “The difficulty we had in creating this St Mawes Edition was leaving someone out! With only so many squares on the board to play with, one had to make some tough decisions. Luckily our lovely new butcher in St Mawes was happy to be Old Kent Road and the Hotel Tresanton was the obvious choice for Mayfair. Not all the choices were that easy.”
Some of the other spaces on the board which replace their London counterparts are: King Harry, Place, St Mawes and the water Taxi in place of the stations; St Mawes Castle instead of Oxford Street and of course the Hotel Tresanton itself as Mayfair. Nearwater and Braganza replaced Trafalgar Square and Northumberland Ave respectively and there are plenty of other fun landmarks that made the grade like St Anthony’s Lighthouse logo, which has pride of place on the rear of the Community Chest cards.
Tim and Amelia added, “The chance/community chest cards have also been customised. Some of our favourites are “Wind Shift in your favour, advance to Go” and “You have been caught jumping off the harbour wall, pay a fine of £20”.
