Monopoly board for Southampton

Southampton is to get its own version of Monopoly after the city council’s PR department scooped first prize in a competition organised by game licensee Winning Moves.

Southampton won the battle against Portsmouth City Council in convincing Winning Moves to base its tenth special edition of the game on the city.

Southampton Council PROs had to prove residents were proud of the city, that there were sufficient landmarks and that the city had a family identity.

A Winning Moves spokesman said: ‘It is a fantastic tribute to have a Monopoly game dedicated to your city and it is a fantastic PR tool.’

The game will be released on 21 October.
