Players can move their pieces from his birthplace in Maida Vale to Hut 8 at Bletchley Park.

Search giant Google has bought 1,000 of the sets and donated them to Bletchley Park to help raise funds.

Although not strictly news worthy for OCN, I thought this was excellent. I will be buying one. Will you?
