As announced earlier this month, Milton Keynes is being honoured with its’ very own official MONOPOLY board – and already just three weeks after the big news broke there have been some “mind blowing” suggestions from the MK public.
The public has been voting in their many thousands for MK landmarks to fill the official customised board – and votes have come in from as far away as New Zealand and Canada.
Voting closes at midnight Thursday 1st May.
“The board will travel the globe when it's out in time for Christmas ,” says Dan Taylor, Head of MONOPOLY Development at makers Winning Moves UK, who have the official license from MONOPOLY owners Hasbro to produce this board.
“Thank you for all the suggestions – each and every one will be considered. Please, please keep them coming!”
Amongst the more novel suggestions so far are:
The new board will see 22 Milton Keynes property landmarks swapping places with the famous MONOPOLY London streets. Also, many of the Community Chest and Chance cards will be customised too. The four train stations from the original London board will take on a ‘travel’ feel.
Carys Underwood, Marketing Manager at Destination Milton Keynes, says: “It’s amazing to see just how many votes are coming in for this brand new board. It’s no surprise ! We are very proud of our city and it is brilliant to know it will be forever immortalised on the most famous board game in the world.
“Please keep voting to make sure your choice gets on one of the coveted spots.”
