Game description: The Port Sorell edition of Monopoly was released in 1991. Designed by Kade Hansson, three beach resort towns on the Rubicon River in Northern Tasmania are featured in the properties; these are Port Sorell, Shearwater and Hawley Beach. Chance and Community Chest remain unchanged, while "Jail" or "Gaol" is now referred to as the "Police Station". The four railroads included are popular shops in the areas, including Wilmot Street Shop, Meridith Street Shop, Shearwater Shoppe, and the Hawley Beach Store. The utilities become Mobil Shearwater and the now-defunct Ampol Port Sorell, service stations in the areas. The currency denominations are unchanged, and the chance and community chest cards - other than the new square names being used - are virtually identical to the originals (though you place second in a beach athletics competition for $10 and you attend a film screening at town hall to collect $50 from every player). This edition was released both as a board game and as a support to a prototype of Kasoft's Monopoly software project "Multipoly".[5] Kasoft Base was located in the featured area for most of the 1980s.

Game description: The Sandy Bay edition of Monopoly was released in 1998. Another Kade Hansson design, the properties originate from the southern suburbs of Hobart, Tasmania, generally around the southern campus of the University of Tasmania in Sandy Bay. Chance and Community Chest remain unchanged, while the "Gaol" (Jail) this time retains the name. The four railroads are Takeaway Shops (fast food establishments) in the area, which includes a McDonald's location in Sandy Bay. The utilities become nightclubs. The currency denominations are the usual, and the chance and community chest cards - other than the new square names being used - are virtually identical to the originals (collect $50 from every player is used for an opera grand opening, meanwhile). This edition didn't become a regular board game but instead joined Kasoft's Monopoly software project "Multipoly".[5] Kasoft Base has been located in the Sandy Bay area since the 1990s.
