Long Description:
In Portugal the game was first made available in the 50's by Majora, a local games publisher. In 1961 there was a second edition and if the first release had the name translated to Portuguese (Monopólio) this 1961 edition had the original title: Monopoly.

From 2006 the board changed, with some new properties replacing old ones, for no apparent reason, and with Euros instead of the old Portuguese currency (Escudos).

This location, Avenida dos Aliados, is one of the most iconic places in Porto, a traditional crowd assembly point, due to its boulevard shape, with a wide pedestrian area in the middle. On the top of this boulevard there is the city wall, and there is a metro station with the same name: Aliados.

Oddly, Avenida dos Aliados is bordered by another Monopoly location: Praça da Liberdade.
