My friend really wanted a Harry Potter monopoly board – but sadly they do not exist. So I made one!
I spent 80+ hours on the board layout, the cards, and all the extra details. I’m so happy with the final product though!
Starting with the final product: board and all the pieces
Mirror image print – creating the board layout was difficult, but also fun to create my own properties
Lay out a layer of polyacrylic, lay down the paper, allow it to dry, and rub away the paper. It leaves the ink behind
Finished the rubbing with some wood-burned edges
Adding the center image and burning the card spaces
An (incomplete) photo of the properties – front and back
Railroads turned to Transportation Methods of the Wizard Community and I turned utilities to newspapers
Charms=Chance, Potions=Community Chess
I used Disney Monopoly pieces and a little spray paint for the houses/hotels
Instead of paper money, I used the Wizard coins of knuts, sickles, and galleons; but with my own variation. I changed the values to simply 10, 50, and 100 values instead
I bought a poker case to hold the money and the cards, tokens, and pieces
I printed out Monopoly Rules (slight HP Variation of course) for the top. Gold spray paint on some wood dividers completed it. (She’s a Gryffindor, hence the color scheme).
With another image of the Gringotts logo on the case and I’m all done
