So, how do you get involved? Get a team of four to six people together - Monopoly veterans will already have started grabbing people so do it now! And then turn up at Beit Quad on Saturday morning (tomorrow) from 10.00am. Each team gets a set of clues that will take you all over London and a collecting can. Fancy dress is optional but highly recommended - a large rabbit can get away with far more than Joe Student. Each clue relates to a street on the board of the original. This is especially useful if you want to win a prize. You need points and these can be earned by solving clues, collecting as much money as you can (rabbits and long legs.help!), carrying a team mascot and finally, treasure. 'Treasure' does not mean turning up with a hijacked police car number plate or Eros from Piccadilly - be original. If you can get an arrest warrant by haggle and grovel without a night in the cells or beg your way into a Fast Food uniform you may find extra points finding their way onto your score. Now I expect you want to know what you get out of it! Well apart from having loads of fun M E N C A P have got a storming set of prizes lined up for the top collectors of the day. These include a skiing trip in Andorra, a week at Plas Y Brenin watersports centre and loads of other things from C D players to record tokens.
