Game makers to drop Dundee jibe
Monopoly
The Dundee association was suggested by Aberdonians
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 Mark Marriot admits the move was a suggestion too far.
