Monopoly (45 Comments) (link)
 Wednesday, 6-June-2007  00:32:02 (GMT +10) - by Agg

There's been a lot of news coverage of a new Australian Monopoly game this week. Apparently there was an online vote to see which Australian locations got onto the game board, but the first I heard about it was when the results were announced. Anyhoo, it turns out that South Australia did particularly well, scoring nearly half of the total votes, and Adelaide itself scoring 22.95% of the nearly 17 million votes cast. Wait a second, 17 million votes is a pretty good voter turnout for a country of ~20M people! Looks like the geek community strikes again. :) I don't really care which locations won, but future organisers of online polls might want to consider filtering multiple votes from the same IP address, with one guy in that thread claiming to have cast 110,000 votes by himself!
