Board games for new times

Fri 24 Apr 2020

When we're not taking calls and dealing with applicants and clients inquiries, we're dusting off the board games to pass the time. Which one's have you been playing?

  • Self-distancing has meant many of the UK’s 27.8 million households and 19.2 million families will have spent more time playing games.
  • 85 years old this year, Monopoly takes 2 spots in the top 5 Amazon best seller board game list. Back in 1935 the £200 to ‘pass go’ was a significant sum, today that would equate to just over £14,300.
  • For the savvy, Old Kent Road is the only street on the south of the Thames, while Mayfair refers not to a street but a location. Today the average price of a property there is a tad more than £400 at £3 million. Together the four stations on the board deal with nearly 84 million passengers per year.
  • Online gaming on devices and phones is a significant growth area. It is estimated 37.3 million people in the UK play games online, the UK games industry worth £5.7 billion in 2018, up 10% year-on-year.


"We recently purchased through Ware & Co. They offered viewings to suit us and were really helpful throughout. Initial dealings with Simon then regular updates from Martin. Both were friendly and efficient."
