I have added the files for everyone to enjoy!

The money and board are images and there are PDF files of the cards and such. You can also find all the full resolution items in my Dropbox share here; https://www.dropbox.com/sh/6i17febpahhw3hh/AAAyc9q...

I have had a lot of fun with this project. I went on to make a set for Adam F. Goldberg and Ariana Grande! You can even see one of these sets as an easter egg in a Goldbegs episode (Episode "Big Baby Ball").

Please create and post images. I love seeing how every version comes along!


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).

<p>Hi! I'm so happy I've stumbled upon this. I was looking for Harry Potter Monopoly, and I was astounded they didn't have one (yet they had Despicable Me which is beyond me). This is so amazing, and I see you're still editing everything and such. I have a question though, are you still selling this? I've noticed in the comments you were making then selling this, but I can't find it. <br>Also, I have a question about the whole galleons thing. I'm not really sure how it works. If you have the &quot;Money Vouchers&quot; do you trade them in for the galleons? How would you pay with the galleons then?</p>
<p>what are the coins for there no coins in the origional monopoly</p>
<p>originality. </p>
<p>yes but do they get used for the game and where can i get them form </p>
<p>I've found it right now and i think, time is too short by creating it till x-mas, but i will Do my very best ;)</p><p>I'm from germany and love it in englisch. Thanks a lot for this great game-ideal. </p><p>I will show you mine , if i'm done. </p><p>One question left: How did you print the board, to get the right size? </p>
<p>I went to www.officedepo.com. You can get it printed and sent to you!</p>
<p>Who is the person on the 5 galleon voucher meant to be?</p>
<p>It's Tonks :)</p>
<p>This is THE best idea ever!! I am currently half way through making this for a friend for Christmas, and just have a question, i want to use the Original box for monopoly but feel it ruins the whole harry potter theme, is there maybe a design you have looked at for the original box to cover it? (also really struggling with the tokens in the UK, but i have plenty of time)</p>
<p>Im in the middle of this project myself and Ive been using this site and another&hellip; http://designinteched.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/how-to-make-harry-potter-monopoly.html He also has printable's for a box cover. I ended up using his board and card printable's but used this site money and wizard instructions(I copy and pasted it into my text edit app and changed the font to the HP and was able to change the wording to match my cards). Good luck!</p>
I am wondering if it is possible to buy the set without the movement pieces or houses. Just the board, money, and cards.
Any chance I can purchase one of these ready made for Xmas. My girls would love it ! I am in Australia
<p>can I please get hold of this?</p>

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.
What kind of photoshop did you use?
<p>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?</p>
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?
<p>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. :)</p><p>https://www.etsy.com/people/michaelgoodman?ref=hdr</p>
<p>Amazing! I love how real it looks! I thought it was a real game when I first saw it!</p>
<p>Haha!! I love it. :)</p>
<p>That's so cool!!! I gonna have to make one myself!</p>
<p>You really should. :)</p>
<p>as Ron would say &quot;bloody brilliant!!!!&quot; I take my (sorting) hat off to you. </p>
<p>*Tips hat &quot;Thank you mam.&quot; :)</p>
<p>You did a fantastic job on this. </p>
