Hasbro is creating a World Edition of it's ever popular Monopoly game and have decided to open up the list of cities that coulld make it onto the board to a worldwide vote.
68 cities have been pre-selected, of which only 20 (plus a few wildcards) will eventually make it . Cape Town, is one of the 68 pre-selected cities, but we are not doing to well at the moment, languishing in the middle of the leaderboard but well short of the top 20.
You are able to vote once a day until the 29th February, so it's your patriotic duty to click over to the Monopoly
site and cast your vote, preferably daily. In fact take it as your duty to the continent as Cape Town along with Cairo (doing considerably better @ position 15) are the representatives of the African continent.
According to Hasbro, since Charles Darrow
patented the game in 1935, approximately 750 million people have played the game, making it "the most played (commercial) board game in the world.
Now, I wonder what they are going to value our mother cityy should we make it onto the board?
