Australian board game entrepeneurs Game of Throws have combined classic game Monopoly with cricket to create Monopoly: Cricket Edition, which has just been released to the public.
This is their maiden game and for the first time Monopoly and cricket are brought together to deliver a board game that caters to cricket fans around the world.
The authentic Monopoly edition features famous grounds from around the world, eight cricket-themed playing tokens and a humourous set of HOWZAT? and THIRD UMPIRE cards.
Traditional houses and hotels have been replaced by stands and media centres to create a unique and family-orientated game.
"Having been around some 80 years, Monopoly is such an iconic and well known game," Jazz Nevill, Game of Throws Director, said.
"It was certainly the most played game in my house growing up and continues to entertain to this day," he added.
"Being the cricket tragic I am, it just seemed a perfect fit to bring together my love of both games.
"We are immensely proud of how the game has turned out and we hope our customers enjoy it as much as we do!"
The game has taken more than a year to get to market with various challenges overcome including using baking clay to craft the tokens and attention to detail paramount throughout.
