Get out of Dundee Free Card 2006-10-20Posted by clype in Articles of Interest, Humanities, Intolerance, Scotland.
Plans to replace the ‘Go to Jail’ penalty square with ‘Go to Dundee’ on an Aberdeen version of ‘Monopoly’ have been dropped.
The games makers, ‘Hasbro’, ditched the idea at the last minute after protests from ‘The City of Discovery’.
The game will feature Aberdeen landmarks in place of the familiar London ones — ‘Marischal College’ has scooped the coveted ‘Mayfair’ slot.
Designer Mr.Mark Marriot admits admits the move was a suggestion too far.
