Queenslands Premier streets are up for sale through the world's most famous board game. Only 8000 of these have been made. Snap up one if you can.

http://dstore.com.au/?cat=Toys&action=view&id=801428&ref=dsto15may06

I'd like to get one through a games shop, where its likely to be cheaper than on the net. Are there any good ones in Brisbane?

They're being sold at Video Ezy, around $80 a pop, from memory. I was planning on buying one until I saw that basically every space on the board has advertising on it! I know it's for charity and all, but that was a bit far for me, especially considering the price I was asked to pay!

and the Railway stations are Central, Roma, Bunswick, South Brisbane

The utilities are Energex and i think Ergon(maybe)


I bought the Gold Coast edition a while back. It had hotels instead of streets and Theme Parks instead of railway stations.

Ummm urban sprall names?? i don't think soooooooo...

"Vertical villages will be part of the future of humanity whether we like it or not," Abedian says. "If anybody believes we will keep knocking over all the trees and creating suburbia with a quarter acre for one house -- that is a dream.

i love that quote...
