Every Dundonian Home Should Have One
It is to get its own official Monopoly board after beating ten other Scottish cities and towns, including Stirling, Perth and St Andrews.
The company which manufacture the game will be consulting Dundonians as to which city property landmarks should be selected to swap places with the famous London sights and sites.
Deep in a cupboard lies the Monopoly board of my childhood and it hasn't seen the light of day for many years. I remember as a child playing Monopoly on alternate Sunday evenings. The other family game we played was Canasta, but I preferred Monopoly because I found it difficult to comprehend card games. I still do even though, at times, I can play a decent game of bridge these days.
My choices of landmarks would be the soon to be built Victoria and Albert museum, along with the Discovery and the Caird Hall, but it will be interesting to see the end result. Must write an early letter to Santa.
Well done Dundee.
