Just in time to make it into Christmas stockings around SA, the MONOPOLY Durban Edition has hit local shelves! Having announced the game in May, Winning Moves, UK have worked around the clock on the board design and production to ensure that eager players can get their hands on the biggest and most loved property game in SA before the summer holidays hit!
As always, the locations chosen to make it onto the final board design are iconic hotspots any visitor to Durban will know. These include uShaka Marine World, Kingsmead, Kings Park, The Pavilion centre and many more.
“It brings us such joy to launch the regional games for MONOPOLY,” says Robert Osborne, Sales Manager for Winning Moves UK. “To see the pride in people’s faces when they recognise the landmarks that they grew up with is always heart-warming and makes us love what we do even more.”
The launch event will take place on Thursday 9th November at The Pavilion and be attended by none other than Mr MONOPOLY himself, to create excitement and get the public ready to roll those dice and challenge some family and friends to prove whom the real property mogul is!
