Picture of Wizard's Monopoly (Harry Potter Monopoly)
For Christmas 2013 I wanted to do something special for my wife. She has mentioned soooo many times that "It sucks, there is no Harry Potter Monopoly!" so I decided since it doesn't exist, I will just make her one.

Had I known it was going to be 3 months of work I may not have done it, but I do think I came up with something very special and unique for her.

I apologize in advance. I have done a few Instrucatables before and documented them all step by step, but I didn't think I would end up posting this so I don't have a lot of step by step images.

Take what you can from this and make it your own! :)
I am happy to answer any questions.

Step 1: Get a Monopoly Set

The first major step in creating a custom Monopoly set is getting a standardized one. You will need pieces from it to create your new one.

The board will be essential in gluing down your board print out onto (but more on that later).

The main reason you need to grab a copy of Monopoly is because of the house/hotel pieces.
More importantly, you can choose to not print out new Chance / Community Chest cards, even money if you decide (Although, most all the fun is in the aesthetics if you ask me!).

Houses and Hotels
All the houses and hotels have stayed the same. It is important to keep the same amount of houses and hotels as the original in case of building shortages. So I re-used these pieces.

I ran out of time to try and replace them with something a little more unique (I would have liked to have done castle pieces).

We are about to have our first child and we have done her room Harry Potter themed with even a mural painted on the wall. I saw this monopoly board this past Christmas and saved it as a favorite for my wife for this upcoming Christmas. I noticed it was no longer on Etsy so how can I get one made bc this is all she wants for herself and the baby room.

Hi, I am trying to make this for my gf's birthday present. But I haven't watched any Harry Potter movies... So if you don't mind, can you share some of your community chest and chance cards?

This is going to help me so much to create mine. I'm also doing it for my wife's 21 birthday. I do have a question though, the houses and hotels how would i go about creating them to castle pieces?
imreallyagoodman (author)  iris.collazo.525 months ago

I actually got these great castle pieces from a local game developer. The game is no longer made, but I have some extras I can sell on Etsy. Let me know if you are interested. You can direct message me on Etsy. :)

how many galleons are distributed to start the game for the character?

imreallyagoodman (author)  MickyP16 months ago

Usually 25 of each dinomination is standard. :)

rcolleary MickyP19 months ago

hi. Do you have the original monopoly? If you do, just look on the instructions and see how many $5 amd $1 you are to distribute to each player at the beginning of the game. He used the galleons and knits as $1 and $5's. Just look at how many $1 and $5 are to be distributed and you will know how many galleon and knuts. If you don't have the original monopoly, and monopoly will work, they are all the same money-wise. If you don't have monopoly at all, just look it up! :)

how much was this trunk?

imreallyagoodman (author)  piercelaveil6 months ago

The trunk usually ranges between $50 - $100. Depends on the features you add. Building the tray was the most work.
