Aberdeen game makes Dundee jibe
Monopoly
The Dundee association was suggested by Aberdonians
The city of Dundee is to be lampooned by a board game being produced for Aberdonians.

The new granite city version of Monopoly is set to replace its traditional "Go to Jail" square with one saying "Go to Dundee".

The move was inspired by research carried out by the game's makers in Aberdeen itself.

This latest version of the property trading board game will feature Union Street and other places of interest.

A Monopoly spokesman said that any offence taken in Dundee was unfortunate.

He said it may be based on sour grapes because Aberdeen was chosen for the third Scottish version of the 70-year-old board game ahead of the city of discovery.

Edinburgh and Glasgow already have their own versions of Monopoly.
