‘Go to Pollsmoor, do not pass Go’

Cape Town will soon have its very own version of the popular boardgame Monopoly, featuring recognisable street names and local top spots on the board.

Residents are being given a chance to vote for their favourite property.

Regional versions of the Monopoly boardgame have been produced for the last 15 years and is licensed in 103 countries, with South Africa next on this illustrious list.

Capetonians will be encouraged to take part in the selection process to choose which recognisable city hotspots will appear on the final board, to be on shelves in November.

Monopoly representative Dan Taylor says several boardgames have been created for cities such as Sydney and Ibiza.

“It’s my job to create a game that the people of Cape Town will be proud of and play with their families for many years,” he says.

Cape Town Tourism spokesperson Nicole Biondi says the organisation is hoping to see some of Cape Town’s “big 7” attractions on the board, such as Table Mountain, the Vandamp;A Waterfront, Kirstenbosch and Groot Constantia.

“Although the game will be predominantly sold and distributed in Cape Town, we’re hoping Capetonians will get excited and start sharing it with friends and families around the world,” she says.

There will also be localised “Community Chest” and “Chance” playing cards, so residents are also encouraged to submit unique Capetonian phrases and words to be used for this purpose. This process will run for the next three weeks.

Cape Town was selected as one of 40 cities to be featured in the world edition of Monopoly, prepared for later this year for the game’s 80th anniversary.V
