Monopoly – an update

I have been reading about an exhibition – “Game Plan – Board Games Re-discovered” – and excellent show at the V&A Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green (East London) which runs between 8 October 2016 – 23 April 2017.

As our regular readers will know, my family and I have a very healthy Monopoly habit that has been known to dominate our Christmas and New Year celebrations.

“Game Plan: Board Games Rediscovered will celebrate the joy, excitement and occasional frustration of playing board games. This will exhibition include some of the most iconic, enthralling and visually striking games from the V&A’s outstanding national collection of board games. Alongside current family favourites such as Cluedo and Trivial Pursuit, and traditional games like chess, the exhibition will look at historical board games including The Game of the Goose and other beautifully designed games from the 18th and 19th centuries.”

V&A Museum of Childhood is open daily from 10.00 to 17.45
