Revealed: The YMCA will be Lincoln's Old Kent Road
The first Lincoln landmark to feature on the city's Monopoly board has been revealed.
Thousands of votes were cast by people from across the world for locations they felt should be on the board.
Game maker Winning Moves UK sifted through a list of more than 200 well-known city sites for the unique game.
And now, Lincolnshire YMCA at The Showroom in Tritton Road will take the first spot on the board – the famous Old Kent Road playing square.

Monopoly bosses had previously been left pondering whether Lincoln was too posh for an Old Kent Road, but Peter Griffin, Monopoly development director at Winning Moves UK, believes being on this square is a coup.
"The Old Kent Road position is one of the most talked about and high-profile locations on the Monopoly board," he said.
"It's a plum and prestigious spot.
"We will be keeping the vast majority of the board close to our 'Community Chests' until we launch the game next month, but we have decided to announce this site first as it's the very first location on the board.
"More than 2,000 landmarks, streets or roads potentially could have appeared on the board. Realistically, around 220 were in the running.
"We would like to formally thank the great Lincoln public for all their votes. Without the public's support this unique and official board could not have been produced."
The Lincoln Monopoly board will be available online from October and in selected Lincoln retailers.
It will have the same traditional format but with Lincoln landmarks replacing the London streets. Lincoln Cathedral, the University of Lincoln, Stokes Coffee Shop and Lincoln Castle are among the contenders to be on the board.
Interest in buying the Lincoln edition has already come from as far away as Australia, the US and China.
A spokesman for the YMCA said: "Lincolnshire YMCA plays a key role in the community of Lincoln and the county of Lincolnshire. With the Showroom and our other centres and services, we believe that we are an integral part of the Lincoln cityscape and are very proud that the official Monopoly game has recognised this."
