RAF stations from across Lincolnshire feature in a new version of the Monopoly board game.

A designer from Nottingham has created the playing board which features RAF Cranwell - home of the RAF College for officer training - as one of the most expensive properties on the board.

Other local Lincolnshire bases to feature include Scampton, Waddington, Conningsby, Honington, Kirton in Lindsey and Wittering, reflecting both existing and historic bases.

Max Allen’s creation has gone through four versions, gathering feedback via a facebok page and Twitter account which he created.

At present the 22 x 22 inch design is to be sold as an unframed print that can be used as a playing board – not a complete game with cards, deeds and pieces.

Other authentic touches include: ‘Go to the CO’s office instead of jail while messes and the NAAFI replace train stations. Utilities become ‘clothing stores’ and ‘armoury’, while Chance becomes S.R.O and Community Chest becomes The Hive.

Mr Allen has done previous versions of the classic board game for Southwell, Radcliffe on Trent, Kingsbridge and West Bridgford to name a few.

He said via facebook: “The price, subject to printing, will be aimed at £35 with £5 per print going to an RAF charity (as yet to be decided).” Postage and packing is to be confirmed or free to collect. They can also be sold with frame too.
