Monopoly: London, New York, Giethoorn

The famous board game Monopoly turns 80 this year. For the occasion, a special world edition will be created, with world cities instead of streets or towns. And people could vote via the internet. The usual suspects won, except for one rather unexpected wild card: the Dutch village of Giethoorn, population under 3000, How on earth? By staging a clever campaign mobilizing the large Chinese population (in China it is one of the most popular tourist attractions). First seen here.
