The blog is back! After a brief hiatus, we are so happy to get back to blogging. It’s been a busy couple of months, preparing this online shop (what do you think of it? Let us know!) and working on some very special projects. We’ve got a lot of cool stuff to show you, so watch this space for more! Speaking of special projects – today, we’re talking about a game that is a milestone in our DIY journey. In fact, it was one of the first games that we ever made personalised. Both for ourselves and for others. I’m talking about our Personalised Monopoly! We’ve come a long way since our DIY monopoly (more on that here) and I really wanted to show you how much we have grown, with a set we made a few weeks ago.

Custom board game idea Personal theme monopoly The-Craftables

Over time, we’ve made dozens of themed monopoly games for people around the world. Each unique and personal. However, in order to explain, I’m going to refer to a single set today. So, without further ado, let’s get started!

Custom Community Chest cards Personalised board games Monopoly by The Craftables


With a personalised monopoly, the first step is to decide the theme. And you will be surprised by how many themes can be adapted to suit the game. For this particular board, we used:

  • Marvel characters instead of Properties
  • Suits cast members instead of Stations
  • Places from the person’s life instead of Corners
  • Football clubs instead of Utilities
  • Clues are taken from the person’s life on Taxes, Chance and Community Chest cards
  • Personalised Game Box

If you would like to know more about how it all ties up together, let us know your questions in the comments below and I’ll share more details.

Similar to this board, you can pick and choose concepts to compose the board theme. Or, make something completely personalised or made theme centric. All 3 options work.

Customisable elements

Monopoly as a game has a lot of components and we can customise all of them. From the money to the board to the cards to the tokens and more. However, each one has a certain time and cost attached to it. So, if you’re interested in getting one made – let us know which components you would like and we can share the price bracket for it.

Over years of making this game, we also developed certain variations in design. For example, you could ask for a 4 folding board or a half folding one.

Here, the customer had the board, cards and box adapted. And chose the same design as the original for the houses, hotels, dice, money and tokens.

As this is such a personal game, we usually make singular pieces themed to the person. The idea is to make something that is a special memory 🙂
