Not too long ago, locals were celebrating the inclusion of Cape town - the only African city to make it - into the Monopoly: Here and Now (World Edition) board game.

Head of City Monopoly Dan Taylor says that the city's popularity and the positive response to Cape Town, after it was voted intog the world edition, prompted this move to pursue a specialised board.

It was a big win and we thought now is a great time to come to Cape Town and create our very first city edition in South Africa.

Dan Taylor, Head of City Monopoly

The local edition is due to be released in November 2015.
