Monopoly World Edition - Queenstown pipped at the post!!!

By Rob Anderson, in , posted: 9-Oct-2008 17:28

I blogged about this a few months ago, and I have finally got around to finding out the results:

The votes have been tallied and the cities elected to occupy the first-ever international MONOPOLY edition game board MONOPOLY Here and Now: The World Edition can be revealed.

Now, where is Queenstown you may ask (I've been asking where is Gdynia, and how to pronounce it - but I found it - still can't pronounce it)?

Ironic, because I am writing this in Queenstown, but the "adventure capital of the world" (according to it's Community Chest card) came 21st and only just missed getting on the board - bummer!!?!

All is not lost though, you will be able to buy a "Kiwi DIY Bonus Pack" that enables you to put Queenstown and Auckland on your board. (it should have been Queenstown and Dunedin - not bloody Dorkland!)

Back to strip tiddly winks and nude ludo for me!
