Voting has opened for the first ever world edition of the board game Monopoly.

The manufacturer of Monopoly, Hasbro, has set up a website where people can vote for cities from a prepared list or nominate a city to feature in the game.

Just 22 cities will make it on to the new game, which traditionally listed street names in each spot on the board.

Dublin is the only Irish location to appear on the list and it stands alongside other major cities like New York, London and Tokyo.

Displaying photos of Trinity College, the Ha'penny bridge and the Spire of Dublin, the Monopoly website cites Dublin’s 'world-famous' literary history and 'carnival style' St Patrick's Day Festival.

Dublin is currently ranked 6th on the leader board with 2% of the total vote.

Paris and London jointly lead with 2.9%, followed by New York, Paris and Rome.

Polls close for the top 20 cities on 29 February 2008.

Two wildcard cities will also make the final board, which will be announced at a press conference in Time Square, New York.
