A limited edition Monopoly board game with a Diamond Valley theme has been cleared for production and will be on shelves in time for Christmas this year. While the actual format of the board is still being decided, the news has delighted local residents and automatically made Christmas shopping a whole lot easier.

A series of meetings and brainstorming sessions have been scheduled to discuss the final layout of the board, and it promises to be a lively process. While many elements of the board are no-brainers – e.g. the train stations will be Watsonia, Greensborough, Montmorency and Eltham – many other sections of the board are open for debate.

Based on many of our recent articles, we’ve listed a number of must-haves below, but also encourage you to provide your feedback in the comments section of the Facebook post relating to this article. Any board game dedicated to the colourful and vibrant community of the Diamond Valley deserves your input. Have your say!
