The makers of Monopoly have caused a storm with its new Monopoly board.
The game, which celebrates 75 years, has come up with a new board design where the squares on the board where you
charge rent replace London street names with cities and towns in the UK.
The selection was based on a poll that netted nearly a million replies.
Manchester did not do well. It occupies the space originally occupied by Whitehall, one of the lesser prestigious pink coloured squares. However, it beats rival cities Liverpool and Leeds that have achieved the least expensive places including Old Kent Road.
