Monopoly board locations

johnboy 8 January 2007 26

It seems that Hasbro have got not idea whatsoever about their own game “Monopoly”.

On their website they’re asking us to vote for locations to go on the upcoming Australian edition of the game about real estate development.

So where are the prime locations to build a hotel in Canberra? Commonwealth Avenue perhaps? London Circuit? Empire Crescent? Canberra Avenue?

Nope, they’ve got “Lake Burley Griffin”, “Canberra”, “Anzac Parade”, “Tindbinbilla”, and the “Cotter Reserve”.


According to the Australian some moron in the ACT Government was likely responsible for this brain damaged selection. Queensland seems to have fared little better.

What's Your Opinion?

Community Chest.

You have been selected to consult with the government.

Stop playing the game now as no-one cares.

Ralph, I have never disagreed with what you’ve said, but I must say I’ve never been assaulted at random by a Sudanese.

I remember, as a young, wide eyed, underage amateur drinker, slinking into ther back of the old Charny tavern and getting hammered on schoobies.

man, that was a long time ago. But the old Charny tavern was heaps better than the battery of pokies they now call the Ginninderra Labor Club.

Damn Threeze.

I was going to suggest Charny!

If you are talking iconic Canberra Pubs, surely the one that most Aussies (well punters) will remember is the Private Bin, due to the Fine Cotton drama.

There is no such place as the Charnwood Tavern, except perhaps in dreams:)

I think Anzac Parade is a good choice. Not surprisingly, it’s currently in the lead by a fairly healthy margin.

Charnwood Tavern/Chisholm’s a shame Burnie Court and Baringa Gardens have gone, they would have been a cert.

Community Chest card;

you have been invited to a same sex civil union, please pay 10 Aussie pesos, and take a 30 year step back in time.

I would have thought “Parliament House”, “National War Memorial” or even “Telstra Tower” should have been in that list.

“Fyshwick” would have been good to put in the ‘red’ properties along with ‘Kalgoorlie’ in WA and ‘Hindley Street’ in Adelaide …

Add the following to the chance pile:

“Native title claim”; and

“You get assaulted at random by Aboriginal/Sudanese/Lebanese”
