This morning we told you about how a Monopoly fan had a surprise when he bought the Weymouth and Portland Game only to discover he had a German Board?

Well we've now heard from Howley's Toymaster in Weymouth who says there are only 24 of these in circulation which have been given to them.

If you bought a game from Howleys which has a German board - you can take it back and they'll swap it.

How the story unfolded:


A Monopoly fan has had an unexpected surprise when he bought Weymouth and Portland's very own version of the game.

Rob Davis from Weymouth got the board game which features Wessex FM from Howley's Toy Master, but when he opened it up he found the board was German!

Howley's say they've already sold more than 100 games since its official launch last week, and this is the second report of a German board turning up.

An official spokesman from Winning Moves has told Wessex FM they're looking into it.
