Wycombe Abbey sets new Guinness World Record

We are delighted to announce that we have set a new Guinness World Records title for the ‘Most people playing Monopoly in a single venue'.

The whole school community gathered together on Monday 14 December to attempt the record and 585 students and staff participated, playing 84 separate games of Monopoly. The former record was for 316 people and was held by NC State University Housing (USA).

The event was adjudicated by an official representative from Guinness World Records who validated the successful attempt and presented the School with a certificate. The Mayor of High Wycombe also attended to show his support and volunteers from One Can Trust and the British Legion acted as external witnesses.

All of the Monopoly boards used in the event were personalised Wycombe Abbey Monopoly sets and will be sold in the School Shop.
