Monopoly fun

I APPLAUD the idea of a Newport Monopoly game and agree with most of the proposed sites for the board. However, I have yet to hear of any options for the Chance and Community Chest squares. May I suggest the following: A. Visit the indoor market – Lose 12 turns waiting for the council to keep its pledges to traders.

B. Invest in the Newport Ship – Throw £200 immediately into the Usk C. Listen to promises to Newport from the Celtic Manor – Set fire to half or your remaining finances and lose all trust in entrepreneurs.

D. Attempt to catch a bus from the city centre – Move six squares in a random direction and abandon any hope of arrival.

E. Free Parking – This square does not exist in Newport; move directly to Cwmbran, do not pass Go, do not collect £200.

I’m sure there are many more options out there. Come on, you fellow sceptics; let’s hear from you.

Predictable sarcasm and negativity from you Julian. It has long become tiresome.

Nice one, Jules. Predictable crap as always.

Put yourself forward for voluntary work and make Newport a better place rather than complaining. Please stay away from stand-up though, you suck.
