Scottish Parliament 'praises' Winning Moves for Stirling Monopoly

The games firm launched Stirling Monopoly last month, which has gone on to receive a motion in the Scottish Parliament.

Winning Moves has been recognisied inside the Scottish Parliament for its latest Monopoly creation inspired by the city of Stirling.

Last month, the games firm launched Stirling Monopoly and has received praise from the Scottish Parliament, with the MSP putting down a ‘motion’ of congratulations.

“Former Prime Minister David Cameron once remarked that a Milton Keynes game we produced maybe should have been rounded rather than square,” said Emma Lodwick, custom games executive at Winning Moves.

“That’s in recognition of the roundabouts in Milton Keynes, was made outside of the House of Commons and was very firmly tongue in cheek. The motion in the Scottish Parliament was for real and we are delighted about it.”

The game will be on sale from early October at a range of retailers across Scotland, including Toy Hub, Argos, Waterstones, WHSmith and The Works.

The motion said: “Parliament congratulates Stirling on being awarded its own Monopoly board,” and that it “considers Stirling is a wonderful city with fantastic scenery and tourist attractions.”
