Shrewsbury shortlisted to feature in its very own Monopoly board Shrewbury is in the running to have its very own Monopoly board, featuring 22 property spots and community chest cards designed to the towns style and culture.

Bosses have shortlisted Shrewsbury as one of five towns that could feature on their very own Monopoly board in a nation wide contest. The winner will join the list of places that have their own Monopoly board such as Wolverhampton, Liverpool, Chester and Coventry.
