Just some observations to make following the announcement of the new Australian ‘Here & Now’ Monopoly board. I would like to remind you all it was decided by votes!!!!
First point for my home-town: Broken Hill is on the board for NSW and Sydney missed out… and some of you hadn’t heard of it! *tsk tsk*.
Second point for my home-state: We may have lost the State of Origin but NSW beat out QLD on the monopoly board. (Well actually everyone did QLD is in the cheapest spot!) Sorry guys… but that monopoly edition will be around a lot longer than memories of who won the 2007 Origin. 😛 By the way – Brisbane didn’t make the board.
Third point for my other home-state: South Australia who took out the most expensive spot on the board (dark blue). Adelaide (where I lived) made the board too.
(For reference Adelaide, Melbourne, Hobart and Perth were the only capital cities that made the board – even though they had the highest populations for voting purposes).
How great is that?
