Cape Town joins 21 other world cities who are celebrating the announcement that they have been included in the Special Edition game of Monopoly Here& Now to honour the 80th anniversary of this ever-green game.
Cape Town was the only South African city to make it onto the World Edition travel-themed board. The new game will be available towards Spring. It will feature iconic landmark tokens and new gameplay where players race round the board to visit as many locations as possible, collecting passport stamps along the way. Players will collect cash from visitor fees when opponents land on their locations and the first player to fill their passport wins.
Says Cape Town Tourism Executive Marketing Manager, Velma Corcoran: “This is such a great way of getting people of all ages from all over to have fun while immersing themselves in the world of travel and tourism. We would like to thank everyone who voted for us and felt that Cape Town belonged in the game”.
