Thousands of people and businesses made suggestions about what Coast landmarks should be immortalised on the locally-themed squares over the past few months.
Among those chosen were Tamborine Mountain, HOTA, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and South Stradbroke Island.

The game first hit the shelves in 1935 and has since been played by more than 1 billion people. It is played in 114 countries and comes in 47 different languages.

Gold Coast deputy mayor Donna Gates made the first roll of the dice when the new board was launched at Surfers Paradise this morning.

“I’m glad so many fans and businesses got involved in having their say because the board truly showcases what this great city has to offer,” she said.
“It’s everything you love about the traditional game adapted in a way that all Gold Coast lovers will enjoy for years to come.”
