The Mother City will soon have its own version of the popular Monopoly board game. That’s a double win for the city after it was recently included in the new Monopoly World Edition, released to celebrate 80 years of the game.


Right now, fans can vote for their favourite landmarks and attractions to be included in the Cape Town edition by emailing with suggestions. Make it fun and educational and try and get your emails in by the end of June 2015. The plan is to release the game just before Christmas. What a great gift it would be!

Monopoly is currently played in 114 countries, translated into 47 languages and over 275 million copies of the game have been sold to date. In addition, Hasbro prints over $30 billion in Monopoly money each year! It’s a family classic that I’m happy to see is still being played today, especially in the modern world of digital gaming.
