The Monopoly board game comes up with its first “World Edition” and Hasbro (the creator of the popular game) wants us to choose the cities to be included in the board.
The company has pre-selected 68 cities, excluding Manila. However, savvy Pinoy Internet users are allowed to nominate Manila as a “Wildcard City”.
How? Just register at the voting site and nominate “Manila, Philippines”. You need to make sure that you are not nominating other similarly-named cities like “Manila, Alabama”. Don’t forget to nominate Manila every day for better chances!
The top 20 nominated Wildcard Cities will then be voted upon from March 1 to March 9, 2008. Only the top 2 nominated cities will make it in the board, along with top 20 pre-selected cities.
As of now, Manila is nowhere in the top nominated list, which included Taipei (Taiwan), Pusan (Korea), Izmir Ili (Turkey), Sevilla (Spain), and New Orleans (USA).
So ano pa ba hinihintay niyo? We know how to use and abuse the Internet (kaya nga lagi tayong Miss Photogenic sa Miss U devah?), so gamitin natin ang powers natin ditets! And don’t forget to spread the word to every Friendster-savvy, Multiply-addicted, WordPress-and-Blogger-loving Pinoys!
