Professional cycling Monopoly is now a thing, and the company selling the board game have already sold out.
Monopoly Course (Monopoly Koers) is designed to tour the players through the greatest spring classics.
Expect to see the likes of the Koppenberg, Arenberg and Poggio take their place on this special board as each property centres around the five Monuments and major one-day classics.
“Think of legendary duels on La Redoute, demarrages on ‘De Muur’ or that one flat tyre on Carrefour de l’Arbre,” says Monopoly Belgium. “Visit the Kwaremont square, take a spin on the Vélodrome of Roubaix, climb up the Poggio and get a victory bonus! This Monopoly edition brings you all the beauty the spring races have to offer.”
The €50 game, distributed in Belgium, was originally only made as a limited run. The monopoly store sold out so quickly that it is now offering gift vouchers for a second run of the game.
“March 2021, in the run-up to the holy cycling week, there will be a second, limited edition due to high demand,” says Monopoly Belgium. For now, those looking for a Christmas gift can give the voucher and ask their cyclists friends to wait patiently.
