Monopoly is creating a global addition of the board game in which world cities will correspond to the original properties. Hasbro, the parent company, has decided to choose which cities make the game from an online voting contest. People can sign on and vote for up to 10 cities a day out of a pre-selected 30 or so. The most popular city will garner the most valuable property space of Boardwalk. The second most popular will be Park Place and so on and so forth. There will be a wild card round for the least valuable two properties (Baltic and Mediterranean – the eggplant colored ones) where voters can nominate any city of their choice. As you will see here, Paris and London are currently in the lead over New York. Come on NYers, represent!
