A fresh proposal for a Diamond Valley edition of Monopoly has reportedly been submitted to Hasbro. While the actual format of the board is yet to be decided, news of the potential new board game has delighted local residents.

News of a potential board game dedicated to our local area has prompted many residents to put forward their suggestions for the format. Prior to the proposal submission, a lively series of meetings and brainstorming sessions were held by a carefully selected focus group to discuss the best layout. While many elements of the board were no-brainers – e.g. the train stations will be Watsonia, Greensborough, Montmorency and Eltham – many other sections of the board were open for debate.

Based on some of our previous stories, we’ve listed a number of must-haves below, but also encourage you to provide your feedback. Any board game dedicated to the colourful and vibrant community of the Diamond Valley deserves your input. Have your say!
