Go straight to Dundee...

...do not pass Go, do not collect £200.

The Aberdeen version of Monopoly will send evil-doers to Dundee instead of the more traditional jail, after opinion was canvassed in the granite city.

While Dundee is not my favourite place, it's fair to say it's not as bad as it was twenty years ago and the city deserves credit for bringing itself round. The city centre is quite nice these days, not something I could have said in the 1980s. I also owe it a couple of degrees and a job that lets me stay near my friends in St. Andrews, so I can't be too down on it. All the same, I thought any random globe-trotting Dundee-phobes reading this would enjoy the story. (Hi, myceliumme! ;-)
