If you want a copy of Camden Monopoly - you might have a long wait on your hands.

The board game has officially sold out.

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.

But all 2000 copies of the game have found new homes.

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."

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.

The game has raised $120,000 for the local charities.

Each charity will receive a cheque for $60,000 in December.

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."

There are currently no plans for a re-print.

However, interested residents are invited to call Council on 4654 7777 and add their name to a waitlist - if one becomes available, or there is an opportunity to do a re-print, these residents will be contacted first.
