The weekend is almost over, which means back to work tomorrow for most of us. So to cheer you up (and myself) I am going to be giving you a little bit of bookish fun every Sunday, to make the end of the weekend that little bit easier!
My week has been a strange one. Me and my boyfriend broke up last weekend and I’ve been feeling pretty emotional since. This weekend I’ve had the house to myself and I was so worried that I was going to end up curled up in the corner of my bedroom crying all weekend but the time alone seems to have done me some good and although I’m still feel massively raw about the entire thing I’m definiltey feeling a bit more emotionally stable.
Part of this, I’d like to think, is because I’ve spent this weekend making my way through all the Harry Potter films in preparation for seeing the Cursed Child next week. Harry Potter always manages to cheer me up and has definitely been a good way to keep myself distracted!
So, onto this week’s Sunday Funday and I’m sticking with the Harry Potter theme. I don’t know about you but my facebook feed this week has been full of Pottopoly and I just had to share it!
The game has been created by Kristen Roedel and her attention to detail is mesmerising! It contains a bank of customized Galleons (in the denominations of 1, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, and 500) and Azkaban instead of Jail!
Forget the old shoe or boat that came with Monopoly, this version comes with 6 playing figurines: Harry, Ron, Hermione, Voldemort, Snape or Draco. You can also buy the additional characters of Dumbledore, Ginny and Luna.
There are 24 Charms cards (Chance) and 24 Potions (Community Chest) cards, and you can buy locations like Dumbledore’s office and the cupboard under the stairs!
The item is currently sold out, but Etsy seller Kristen Roedel will be opening up pre-orders again in March, which gives us just enough time to save up for this fabulous game!
In the meantime if you are looking for a bookish game to play you should check out my new challenge, Bookopoly!
