Friday 22nd January 2021: The Phuket edition of Monopoly was announced just a few weeks ago, and now the makers of the game are asking for you to vote for what you think should replace Old Kent Road.
Old Kent Road has traditionally been the cheapest property square on the board. Costing players just sixty Monopoly dollars (the in-game currency), it is one of the easiest properties to build up your Monopoly empire, compared to the more costly properties such as Mayfair and Park Lane.
“Although Old Kent Road is on the lower end of the board, it’s famous around the world and people associate it with Monopoly”, says Jennifer Lau from Winning Moves UK Ltd, who is producing the game under official license from Hasbro, owners of Monopoly.
“We want to replace this in the Phuket edition with something that is equally as famous in the area - whether it holds historical value or is significant to Phuket, we want to hear from everyone!”
