HOME Bargains is selling its own version of Monopoly – including Clydebank and Rutherglen stops.
A sharp Twitter user was quick to spot the Scots towns on the store’s version of the property-buying board game.
The special edition game is presented in a blue and red box, to represent the Home Bargains logo, with a matching board to play the game.
A description on the Home Bargains website reads: “Move over Mayfair, Home Bargains is in town!”
However, the exclusive version of Monopoly by Hasbro also features some of Home Bargains most iconic locations, warehouses and their online store.
And Clydebank isn’t the only Scots location to feature in the game, with Rutherglen on the board too.
The game starts off with Home Bargains’ very first store in Old Swan, Liverpool, with other locations including Pontefract, Newtownabbey, Harlow and Poole.
Spotting Clydebank in the game, one Scot wrote on Twitter: “Can’t believe home bargains have their own monopoly and one of the places on it is Clydebank.”
The tweet has gained a lot of attention on social media and has racked up over 1.3K likes.
The board game is sold out online, but eagle-eyed shoppers have spotted them on sale in stores.
Meanwhile, we previously told you how old board games gathering dust in Scots cupboards around the country could be worth a fortune.
Auctioneer Love Antiques is encouraging folk to check what their games are worth before chucking them out.
It’s thought millions of pounds worth of games could have been sold for a pittance at car boot sales.
Will Thomas, Managing Director at LoveAntiques.com said: “Board games have been popular for so many years and many have become sought after collectable items, but it’s fascinating to discover just how much people will pay for limited editions of these games.”
