For starters, another review on here will state that the list of properties is unavailable online due to some sort of marketing conspiracy... well, lets change all that right now. Here is a complete list of all the properties, which I personally found to be wonderfully varied and relevant:
BROWN - Sandsfoot Castle, Portland Castle.
LIGHT BLUE - Daniels Fish and Chips, Sea-Life Adventure Park, Sea-Life Tower.
PINK - Portland Climbing, Weymouth Sailing Club, Weymouth F.C.
ORANGE - Rossi's Ice Cream Parlour, Kings Statue, Jubilee Clock.
RED - Condor Ferries, Dorset Echo, Weymouth College.
YELLOW - Bowleaze Cove, Sandworld, Chesil Beach.
GREEN - The Osmington White Horse, Nothe Fort, The Jurassic Coast.
DARK BLUE- Portland Bill, Weymouth Beach.
Sea-Life Land Train, Weymouth Station, the Ferry Port and Weymouth Town Bridge serve as the stations. Weymouth Advertiser and Wessex FM also make an appearance.
No, you wont find any Weymouth/Portland street names here... but why would you? I mean who would appreciate that apart from a handful lifelong Weymouth/Portland residents? This edition obviously exists due to the coverage the 2012 Olympics has given the area so it needed to incorporate tourists and people with a passing interest in the town as well as people who live here. I mean yes, they could've made Beverley Road the new Old Kent Road and Dorchester Road into Mayfair, but who would even get that reference? It could be argued that a place such as Daniels Fish and Chips should not be on the board at all... to those people I simply say - have you ever even tried Daniels? I would've made that a dark blue property, personally. Might've been nice to see Goldfingers on the board, but hey, can't have everything.
All in all this is a wonderful edition of the classic game. If you have ties to Weymouth and Portland I am sure you will enjoy the references and not be let down at all by the selections of places of interest on the board. I am buying several more of these for family and friends Christmas presents - it makes the perfect gift. As a lifelong, proud resident of Weymouth, I absolutely love this edition and can't rate it high enough.
Old Kent Road/WhiteChapel are Sandsfoot Castle and Portland Castle - and that's fine. And the Mayfair end is Weymouth Beach and Portland Bill. OK.
But other than that, the spots are taken by such esteemed local landmarks as Daniels Fish and Chips, Sea life Land Train (plus Sea Life Adventure Park and Sea Life Centre - forming a threesome) and Bobby's ice Cream Parlour. Then there's the Weymouth Advertiser and Dorset Echo. Don't forget those must-see landmarks of Condor Ferries, Weymouth Football Club and Weymouth Sailing.
None of the great old streets of Weymouth or the island are here. Just advertising pap. The maker is just hoping that old grannies buy it as a Christmas present, without checking.
And if you try to see the board online before you buy, guess what? You won't find it... because they don't want to tell you what they've stuck on the board.
A deeply naff sell-out.
It will interest people who either live locally or holiday there.
