'MONOPOLY' BOARD GAME: The idea of the game is to buy and rent or sell properties so profitably that one becomes the wealthiest player and eventual monopolist.

This game is complete and presents itself in brilliant condition throughout. In keeping with the traditions of that era, the pieces are housed in a separate compartment from the 'standalone' game board. It is therefore all the more surprising that the game board shows only the most minor signs of wear to the corners. The spine is not split and the paper is not torn and, save for the most minor play-wear to its surface, the board really is in fantastic condition for its age. But even more surprisingly than this, however, is the condition of the contents and the box in which they are housed. We have seen a number of such boxes in our time and this is, without a doubt, the best example we have ever come across. The box has retained its shape perfectly; every corner is completely intact without any use of sellotape; and the colours on the box lid picture are vibrant, clean and clear.

Moving to the contents themselves, we were so amazed by the condition of the ultra-rare austerity cardboard counters in their coloured wooden blocks that we had them looked over to confirm their authenticity: and they are real! The property cards, chance cards and community chest cards are mostly in near-mint condition and the money looks barely used, if used at all. The game contains both the normal and short game rules and both are in excellent condition.

This is the very game which will feature on The Alan Titchmarsh Show on ITV at 3pm on Tuesday, 12th November 2013. Christopher McClure, owner of Vintage Playtime, was a guest along with a expert from the Museum of Childhood in London, who expressed her delight at finding a very early edition in Monopoly in such remarkable condition. Monopoly is the board game by which all others are measured and this truly is a once in a lifetime opportunity to secure a piece of pre-war history in excellent condition and which has featured on national television - not to mention the fact that it has been handled by Alan Titchmarsh himself!
