Alan Turing Has an Official Monopoly Board. Here are Some of Our Other Favorites

Godfather of the computer age, Alan Turing, will be getting his face on some currency — just not, y’know, real money. Turing’s face will grace each and every bank note in the newly announced Monopoly: Alan Turing Edition. Based on a design that Turing played with friend Max Newman, the game, released by Bletchley Park Code Centre, where Turing did the codebreaking work that was instrumental to an Allied victory in WWII, is designed to teach players facts about Turing’s life. Believe it or not, this Google-funded endeavor is just the latest of hundreds of bizarrely branded takes on Monopoly that are things that exist in the real world. You can get a look at some of out other favorites after the jump.
