Arguments over the Monopoly board game are set to go global, as the final cities have been chosen for the game’s 80th anniversary World Edition board.
The new edition will be available to buy later this year – sometime in autumn – and it is set to feature Belfast on one of the more expensive locations on the board.
Fair play, Belfast...
The most expensive spots on the board have been claimed by Lima, Peru, and Hong Kong, while the cheapest spots have been given to Giethoorn, Netherlands; Madrid, Spain.
The board positions were chosen by a public vote and according to The Independent, “[the] brown slots were opened up to a ‘Wildcard Week’ where participants could vote for any town or city, big or small, that hadn’t made it onto the most popular list.”
Here’s a look at the final list in full…
Dark Blue: Lima, Peru; Hong Kong, China
Green: Riga, Latvia; Lisbon, Portugal; Istanbul, Turkey
Yellow: Warsaw, Poland; Mexico City, Mexico; Santiago, Chile
