Cape Town - Mr Monopoly is in town and claiming Cape Town’s hottest spots as his own in a lead up to the global launch of the new Cape Town Monopoly board game at the V&A Waterfront on Friday 13 November 2015.

Monopoly, one of the world’s favourite board games is celebrating its 80th anniversary with a new Cape Town version of the game. This fun way to travel the city will make lovely stocking filler for the festive season. 

The city is excited to see which Cape Town trademarks and highlights will be included in the game, says Bulelwa Makalima-Ngewana, CEO of the Cape Town Partnership facilitating the City Walk. The Cape Town Big 7, which aims to ensure visitors and locals enjoy the awesome things to do in the country, would make excellent inclusions. 

Take a look at his Big 7 tour...

On his tour of the mother city, Mr Monopoly (dressed for the occasion in his signature bow tie, tuxedo and top hat) was spotted exploring the inner City Walk starting at the Company Gardens, then down St George’s Mall to Waterkant Street and up the Fan Walk to St Andrew’s Square. 

Here he is seen posing for a photo before boarding a boat to Robben Island.
