Croatian edition of the world’s bestselling board game Monopoly, the first that features places from all over the country, hit the shelves last Friday, a year after the project was first announced.
People sent their suggestions via e-mail and shared them on the official Monopoly Croatia Facebook page for 30 days at the beginning of last year, and places such as Plitvice, Dubrovnik, the islands of Hvar and Brač, Varaždin, and many others, have been selected from over 5,000 landmarks to make the final cut.
“Monopoly Croatia was a truly exciting project. People from all over Croatia and the world, even all the way from Australia, have sent their suggestions for the cities, natural and cultural landmarks they wanted to see on the board game Monopoly Croatia,” said Lazar Vukovic, Head of Balkans and Russia for Winning Moves.
Monopoly has become a part of popular culture since it was first sold in 1930s, and local editions have been sold for over 17 years. Croatia has now joined the 111 countries which have got their own editions of the wildly popular board game.
