Julia Posen, Head of Development at Gamepath (one of the producers alongside Hasbro) said: "Hasbro's original board game continues to lead the market year in, year out and is loved globally by every generation that has grown up with the game. It has been an exciting journey to work with the talented Gamepath production team to bring this new experience to central London. We're very excited as we know we have created something really special for people of all ages. When you step into the world we're creating, we promise a dynamic, lively interactive experience and a great night out. Get ready for high risks and high rewards where there's no ceiling to winning. As long as you can stay out of jail!"
