If Windsor is to get its own Monopoly board then residents will need to vote in their numbers to overhaul the town’s rivals.
Monopoly games’ chiefs announced in January that six places had been shortlisted to appear on a new edition of the classic board game.
The locations span each of the six counties bordering Great London and include Windsor, Marlow, Cranbrook, Guildford, Epping Forest and St Albans.
But Surrey’s representative looks on course to ‘Pass GO’ in the region-wide public polls with Guildford amassing 48.6 percent of the vote.
Windsor lies in second place with 23.1 percent, St Albans has 11.2 percent and Marlow has 10.3 percent.
The game will go into production reading in time for Christmas (2016) and will feature customised Chance and Community Chest playing cards.
You can vote by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by posting to Home Counties Monopoly, Winning Moves UK, 7 Praed Street, London W2 1NP.
Polls close at midnight on Friday, March 18.
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
