BSO London Monopoly Run 2019

Scouts outside 10 Downing Street

The Monopoly Run “Live” involves Scouts and Guides racing around London visiting the actual locations on the Monopoly game board, such as Trafalgar Square and Oxford Street. Teams compete against each other in real time to buy and rent property, pick up ‘Chance’ cards as well as passing ‘Go’. There is even a quiz to play on the day for bonus credit.

The event is a great a day out in the exciting capital with patrols competing against others from all over the UK to see who will be this year’s Monopoly champion!

Monopoly Run Live is first and foremost a great day out for any group of Scouts and their Leaders. You can play the game at any pace you like, there will be both competitive and more ‘relaxed’ teams. Everybody who attends will come away with:

  • A great experience and a chance to meet other Scouts/Guides from all over the UK
  • Unique ‘Monopoly Run Live’ uniform badge
  • Access to the Monopoly Run app for Apple & Android phones
  • Final team position + full analytics of your day generated by the organiser’s bespoke control system

The last run saw over 1,200 Scouts and Guides from all over the UK take part.
