Yes, a local Swindon version is a little silly, but great for residents or long term visitors to the area. The inclusion of the 'Magic Roundabout' makes it worth the purchase alone!!!! Playing on properties that we know and love adds an extra element to the game.
The quality is up to the normal Hasbro / Monopoly standard. It should be good for many hears of fun.
Minor complaints / improvements:
-the property value is made up Monopoly currency rather then Pound Sterling. I think that this removes some of the tangible value of the gameplay.
-the game pieces are normal Monopoly games pieces (dog, car etc). It would be more fun if one or two of these were 'special edition' based on the local area.

A first class game based on a first class town - Swindon! I just love playing this, it reminds me of my lovely home town and of the places, experiences and people of my past. They've done a great job integrating all the special Swindon bits into the game as well as keeping it economically viable and relevant to the sponsors. If you come from Swindon, get it!

My dad is a big Swindon Town Football Club fan, and with this game he can buy the club!
This is a good version of Monopoly, it is much the same as every other monopoly out there, but has Swindon based landmarks as the property.
Great for Monopoly and Swindon residents/fans alike.
