If Monopoly British Army Edition can be made and sold at all the regular Monopoly retail outlets, a sum (either a fixed amount per number made/sold or a percentage of the sales) could be donated to a yet to be decided Army charity.
Obviously discussions would need to take place to discuss figures (cost to make, overheads, etc.) but in order to raise as much money as possible, I have waived any financial reward for the idea and would hope whomever backs the game would also like to see the highest possible amount going to the chosen charity.
Hasbro UK and Winning Moves UK (who make limited and special editions for Hasbro UK) both approve of our motives and would like to see the game reach supermarket shelves - so much so that they are more then happy to put theirs and the Monopoly™ name on the box. However they are not convinced that their usual retail outlets would be interested in selling the game.
Most of the major retail outlets that I've approached (Asda, Tesco, Sainsbury and Morrisons) have said that they support our servicemen and their charities. Yet they need to be convinced the game would appeal to customers hence they "have no plans to persue the game at this moment." However if I could convince Hasbro UK to make the game or find some way to finance it, then the supermarkets would welcome further discussions.
So to summarise, Hasbro UK/Winning Moves UK need retail interest and the retailers need consumer interest. This is where YOU come in...
If you are a serviceman, ex-serviceman or a friend or relative of either... A charity worker or someone who likes to donate to good causes... A Monopoly player or a collector... Or grateful for all our brave men and women - heroes all - who serve to protect us in the name of peace and freedom and to neutralise the threat from terrorism, and you are interested in buying Monopoly British Army Edition or would just like to see it made in order to raise money for those hurt on the front line, then please show the powers that be that this game would sell by signing this petition.
Thank you for your support,
