And the Playing Board (Click Photo to see the large size where you can read it):-

Cracking wee Monopoly type game and Laminate covered to protect from Fag Burns and alcohol induced Spillages. :wink:

Made in 1991 with 21 White on Black Illustrations in the playing board Centre and Classic Glasgow Styled Chance Cards with quotes like:-

Congratulations, You have had the sense to rent your quality furnished home from Glasgow City Housing at under £200. 8O
Collect your £300 Savings from the Bank.

And....

You see a woman being mugged and rush to her aid. You discover that you have disturbed STV who are filming a new Drama Series.
Pay the Director (The Player On Your Left) £200 Damages. ::):

Oh wow, thats a blast from the past. I did have the glasgow game and played it quite a few times, but I havent the slightest clue of what became of it. I suspect it was binned with other stuff from when I moved out of my mums house
