For all of us who've played the game Monopoly, we've all sought to get the richest property, the one sweet spot just before GO, Boardwalk. Montreal has been voted the most expensive property to buy in a new international version of Monopoly, edging out major tourist destinations like London, Paris and New York. The new board game, called "Monopoly Here & Now: The World Edition," is using cities rather than streets. Two other Canadian cities made it into the game -- Toronto and Vancouver -- but they're both in the lower half of the properties. The cities were chosen by voters from around the world, and more than 5 million Monopoly fans reportedly cast ballots to have their favorite cities included in the first ever global edition of the game. As I scanned news sites, and blog sites there seems to be a bit of a tiff with us being number#1 ? - what do you think ? The game goes on sale in September. Have fun peoples. Share your thoughts?
