If you want a copy of Camden Monopoly, you had better get in quick.

There are only 50 copies of the board game left.

More than 1500 copies of Camden Monopoly were sold in just three days following the game's debut at the Camden Jacaranda Festival last week.

Harrington Park's Monopoly super-fan Don Heard said he was "delighted" to secure himself a copy of the game.

"I was scared that I was going to miss out, but I'm very relieved now I've got my three copies," he said.

"I think it's phenomenal how many games were sold - they went like hotcakes.

"I heard people saying they were getting copies for their grandkids and presents for Christmas. The game looks great and it's made that much more special with the local angle."

Camden Council ordered 2000 copies of the game, which sold for $60 apiece with all funds going to Lifeline Macarthur and the Camden Wollondilly Domestic Violence Committee.

Copies are available for purchase at Camden and Narellan libraries, the council administration building in Oran Park, Alan Baker Art Gallery and the Camden Visitor Information Centre.

Mayor Theresa Fedeli said she was thrilled to see the game was so well received.

"The Monopoly initiative has truly been the buzz around the Camden area, and rightly so," she said.

"It's a piece of history that residents can be proud of for generations to come."

Cr Fedeli encouraged locals who were yet to buy a copy of Camden Monopoly to get in quick.

There are currently no plans for a reprint of the game.
