Windsor has gained ground and closed the gap on Guildford in the race to win its own Monopoly board.
The two locations are locked in a two horse race to be crowned the most deserving location in the Home Counties to be immortalised by the world famous board game.
Now Windsor needs your votes to help it win the competition before the polls close on Friday.
Guildford was quickest out the blocks and seemed to build an unassailable lead in February, racking up 48.6 per cent of the vote, with Windsor on 23.1 per cent in second place.
But the Royal Borough town has reeled in its rival, leaving Guildford on 31.6 per cent, with Windsor tantalisingly close on 30.2 per cent.
One final push could see the likes of Windsor Castle, Eton College and the Crooked House become the board game’s latest prime property.
A spokesperson for the makers of the proposed new board, Winning Moves UK, said: “It’s possible we may literally have to roll the dice at a place equidistant between the two say in the borders of Berkshire and Surrey.
“That’s how close the vote is. These two are pretty much clear of the other four in the race.”
Help Windsor overcome Guildford by emailing votes to firstname.lastname@example.org or posting to HOME COUNTIES MONOPOLY, Winning Moves UK, 7 Praed Street, London W2 1NP.
Votes close on Friday and the winner will be announced in spring.
