Brisbane Is Getting Its Own Monopoly Board!

Brisbane Is Getting Its Own Monopoly Board!

…But who will get the coveted Mayfair and Park Lane spots?

By Candice Jackson | 5th April 2016

It’s official! Brisbane landmarks will become immortalised on a local edition of one of the world’s most loved boardgames, Monopoly, as Lord Mayor Graham Quirk and Mr Monopoly (aka Rich Uncle Pennybags) made the exciting announcement on the South Bank forecourt on April 5.

While it’s often known as a testing game for relationships, we’re hoping the process of deciding on our favourite Brisbane landmarks will bring us all together. That is until the game hits stores in November, then it’s game on!

But in the lead up to extorting your family, going to jail and never passing go, owning and managing multiple hotels, and going bankrupt and sulking, here’s how you can get involved TODAY!

Chances are you'll be raking in the cash like Seinfeld...

The game’s makers will be consulting with locals via their Brisbane Monopoly Facebook page, which encourages Queenslanders to nominate their favourite locations, landmarks, iconic streets and venues to take over the original London spots made famous in the original 1935 version.

Rumour has it the two most popular places voted for by the public will be given the prestigious dark blue Mayfair and Park Lane property squares on the Monopoly board.

Lord Major Graham Quirk has high hopes for the Story Bridge, South Bank, Mt Coot-tha and City Hall to reach the board, while we have a sneaky suspicious Newstead and Teneriffe will be high on voters' lists. We’ve just got our fingers crossed that our suburb of residence doesn’t take over the brown properties Old Kent Rd and Whitechapel Rd… even though we’re sure the property will look pretty good when we’re low on cash in the game!

You have until July 31 to have your say by voting on their Facebook page. The Brisbane edition Monopoly board with then be available In all leading toy retailers across Australia in November, just in time for Christmas!
