NEWPORTONIANS will be able to buy the well known sites of the city later this year when its own version of Monopoly is released.

The board game will be released to coincide with Newport's hosting of the NATO summit at Celtic Manor in September.

The public is being invited to make their suggestions for the game, which will feature 22 property landmarks from the city.

And there are plans to customise Community Chest and Chance cards for the version of the game.

One planned forfeit for the game is to fine players for visiting Cardiff.

Public voting lines, including on Facebook, will be opened soon so people can choose which landmarks they want on the game.

Monopoly was first released in 1935 and it is estimated more than six billion green houses and two billion red houses have been made.

The game is sold in 111 countries and played in 43 languages.
