Has The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust Ruined The Stratford Monopoly Board?

The new Stratford-upon-Avon Monopoly Board was released yesterday.

A nice board with lots of local Stratford landmarks featured.

Local residents were shocked and annoyed to see that The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust have ruined what should have been a fantastic board though by insisting their name was plastered shown prominently on the 2 main squares.

Shakespeare's Birthplace on Stratford Monopoly - Anne Hathaway's Cottage on Stratford Monopoly

Should The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust Feel Ashamed about Ruining The Stratford Monopoly Board?

Somebody at The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust should feel thoroughly ashamed if they insisted on having the nice photos of Anne Hathaway’s Cottage and Shakespeare's Birthplace ruined like this just to give them a bit of added publicity and promotion.

Were they not happy that they had the 2 prime squares on the Stratford Monopoly board?

Was it just one persons decision or did a committee sit down and say, they will only allow Shakespeare’s Birthplace and Anne Hathaway’s Cottage on the Stratford Monopoly board if they could get as much publicity & promotion from it as possible?

No other monopoly squares have been defaced like this – Just The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust ones – Why?

Let’s just hope that Winning Moves UK bring out a 2nd edition Stratford Monopoly Board

Hopefully, if The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust are ashamed of how they have ruined the Stratford Monopoly Board Winning Moves UK will produce a 2nd edition showing Shakespeare’s Birthplace and Anne Hathaway’s Cottage in their full glory on the Mayfair and Park Lane squares (preferably with it called Anne Hathaway’s Cottage rather than Anne Hathaway’s House too)

I would be interested to hear others comments on this (comment below)
