The first special edition Monopoly board to honor a gay person is set to be released in the U.K. Codebreaker and mathematician Alan Turing — whose World War II codebreaking algorithms helped pave the way for the modern computer and an Allied victory — graces the special edition board game, produced by Winning Moves and U.K. code museum Bletchley Park. Google is also a primary sponsor of the specialty set, purchasing the first 1,000 games and donating them to Bletchley Park to sell as a fund-raiser. The game is available for pre-order online, with delivery expected in November.
