InterContinental Adelaide is proud to be featured as one of the green properties on the new Adelaide MONOPOLY board game, which celebrates and showcases many of Adelaide’s iconic locations and venues in what is a truly unique edition
Positioned alongside some of South Australian’s true icons, from the Art Gallery of South Australia, to the newly created world-class SAHMRI building, redeveloped Adelaide Oval and the Adelaide Entertainment Centre. These are just some of the many sites immortalised and now you have the chance to own them all!
In all, 22 Adelaide and greater Adelaide property landmarks were selected to replace the famous London streets from the original board after the public was invited to offer up their suggestions via email and Facebook, earlier in the year.
Leon Bignell MP, Minister for Tourism, is a huge fan of both Monopoly and South Australia. “I think bringing the two of them together is a great idea. As one of the top 10 cities in the world to visit in 2014*, it makes sense that Adelaide would have its own version of the world’s most famous board game.”
Developed by Winning Moves, the game will be available throughout South Australia at a range of leading retailers including; Big W, Toys R Us, ABC stores, Australian Geographic, Toyworld.
First produced by Parker Brothers in the mid 1930s, the game quickly expanded throughout Britain and America and is now one of the most recognisable board games in the world. Specialised ‘local’ editions of the board began to appear in the 1990s and the Adelaide version is one of more than 100 of such around the world. Known for its length of time required to achieve domination, the longest monopoly game in recorded history lasted for 70 straight days.
