It's time to collect $200 and pass GO - Camden's first-ever Monopoly board is here!
Two thousand copies of the beloved board game were delivered to Camden Council on Friday and will be available to purchase at the Camden Council Information Stall on the second day of the Camden Jacaranda Festival (Saturday, November 23).
The boards will be available for $60, and all funds will be donated to Lifeline Macarthur and the Camden Wollondilly Domestic Violence Committee.
Camden mayor Theresa Fedeli said residents needed to get in quick to secure their boards.
"Camden Monopoly has truly been the buzz around Camden, so we are expecting these 2000 games to fly off the shelves," she said.
"It is a classic, timeless game that residents can be proud of for generations to come.
"Our board features 22 popular and much-loved locations from around the Camden area, including Macarthur Park, Argyle Street, Belgenny Farm and, my personal favourite, Birriwa Outdoor Youth Space."
Macarthur's resident Monopoly collector Don Heard, from Harrington Park, said he couldn't wait to get his hands on the special game.
"I am eagerly awaiting its arrival," he said.
"I want to get three copies - one for me, one for my sister-in-law's husband and one for my twin brother.
"Camden Monopoly will certainly have pride of place in my collection."
Mr Heard said he would be arriving at the Jacaranda Festival early to make sure he doesn't miss out.
Cr Fedeli said there was no better place to launch the game than the festival.
"It's so fitting this game is being sold at the Jacaranda Festival as both are such a celebration of our beautiful area," she said.
"And it's the perfect Christmas present to bring family and friends together for a really fun time."
