A number of cities around the world are celebrating their inclusion into the Monopoly: Here and Now (World Edition) board game, scheduled for release later this year.

Nearly four million votes were cast in 182 countries for the various Here and Now editions of the popular board game, to coincide with its 80th birthday.

At one stage, Cape Town was running in seventh position, but in the end slipped down a few places, but still made it as the only city from Africa to make it into the international edition.

The full list, in order of votes received and therefore their position on the board, are:

  • Dark Blue: Lima, Peru; Hong Kong, China
  • Green: Riga, Latvia; Lisbon, Portugal; Istanbul, Turkey
  • Yellow: Warsaw, Poland; Mexico City, Mexico; Santiago, Chile
  • Red: Belfast, Ireland; Athens, Greece; Belgrade, Serbia
  • Orange: London, England; Moscow, Russia; Tokyo, Japan
  • Magenta: New York City, USA; Amsterdam, Netherlands; Sydney, Australia
  • Light Blue: Queenstown, New Zealand; Cape Town, South Africa; Taipei, Taiwan
