Harry Potter Monopoly board

Has anyone created this before on the forum? Harry Potter Monopoly! I put this together super quick, high res enough to print. Gonna play around and design it more, use some alternative images for the center. There are a few fan made boards online, some available to buy on Etsy, but surprisingly no official version :o

Anybody want to help with the properties and card ideas? Like -

What would you pick for the 3 most expensive properties?

I don't have a monopoly board on hand to look at in order to re-do the community chests and chance cards etc. (Ministry Of Magic decrees for chests & Gringotts for chance cards Perhaps?) Will be fun coming up with HP alternatives. The jail will be of course... Azkaban.

Looks brilliant Tim.

We did use a Monopoly board as the base for our Philosopher's Stone Challenge last year, but we didn't really follow the Monopoly gameplay, it was more a way to structure the game and keep track of where everyone was in the school year.

Definitely up for helping with this looks fun.

What are you intending to do with it? Are you planning it as a printable proper board game or as an online game?

Hey Tim!!

Well I think this is a great idea!

A Harry potter theme monopoly board was are idea for the main 2014 summer event on here!! Each space was a new task for the teams to do. And I was the host! Just look at my avatar!

For some reason this event has been put in a high classified area! So regular members can't see this event anymore but here is a pic

Ok firsts things first. The board has 22 colored streets, four railway stations and two utilities. So 3 most expensive streets / properties, the red tiles, then the next ones etc.

Opps! The BLUE tiles are the most expensive! Shows how much I've played :s So what would be your picks for the 2 blue tiles? It's harder than it seems, I take it Privet Drive would be in there somewhere. But what else to use? Hagrids Hut and locations like that? Or would they be Classrooms? So what are your ideas for the properties?

Jag that looks like so much fun, how did the event turn out? Any ideas for mapping it to a proper monopoly board? "Detention with Filch" haha love it.

River - I'm making it high res so it would print nicely on a monopoly board. My coding skills wouldn't be good enough to create an online game out of it.

Hogwarts should definitely be Mayfair, but I think Park Lane should be Godric's Hollow or something like that.

I don't like the idea of Hogwarts and Malfoy Manor together.

Privet Drive should definitely be Old Kent. :lol:

Actually no, I have an idea. Maybe instead of railways it could be magic schools. Hogwarts, Beauxbatons, Durmstrang. But what would be fourth?

If this was the case, it would look like:
Zonko's Joke Shop
Honeydukes
Ollivander's Wand Shop

Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes
Three Broomsticks Inn
Shell Cottage

Malfoy Manor
Hogwarts


They don't really fit. If anything, WWW should be moved up with Zonko's and Honeydukes. But, then WWW is from Diagon Alley and the rest are from Hogsmeade. So, how about the green estates are:

Weasley Wizard Wheezes
Shell Cottage
The Burrow


So then, it's like Weasley territory. I think that would be nice. Which would really encourage the idea of Godric's Hollow as Park Lane for sentimental value. Unless of course we do make the magical schools the railways. (I remember they published a fan fiction ages ago but it was an actual book series on James Potter but not by JKR. He had an American school in it where Benjamin Franklin was the headmaster and he was actually a wizard. It was pretty clever but I think the school was Alma Aleron).

This is really cool Tim!
I like the idea of making the railways schools. We could make the fourth one "Salem Witches' Institute" though no one really knows that one and it might not even be a school. According to Harry Potter Wiki there is also Mahoutokoro (Japan)
Koldovstoretz (Russia) and Uagadou School of Magic (Africa.)

The cards would be really fun to make. "You have been caught by Filch sneaking Dungebombs back from Hogwarts. You lose 5 galleons."
"You enter your owl into a Wizarding Pet Contest and she wins. Collect 10 galleons."
"You sucessfuly bet on Puddlemore winning the Quidditch League. Collect 10 galleons."
Just some random ideas but that would be so fun!

Also last thing... probably not plausible and you might not want to... but this would be so fun to play on here once its done. We could have like four players sign up (who promise to be active.) and they take turns rolling the dice on chat. On chat we then tell them what they landed on and whether they want to buy it with an amount of galleons we gave them at the start. Just a far fetched idea though.
