|How do you make a board game about the Village of La Grange? You choose favorite landmarks and a big parade, mix in some shops and a soccer club, restaurants and railroads to create La Grange-Opoly, a limited-edition game being released this month by the La Grange Business Association.
The unique game features a board with real estate properties, playing cards, game money and tokens and is made in the USA. It will be sold for $29.95 plus tax at La Grange retailers including Anderson's Bookshop, Fair Game, Horton's and TATES Old Fashioned Ice Cream.
Iconic "properties" on the game board include Lyons Township High School, the historic West End Train Station, FNBC Bank & Trust, the La Grange Theatre, the La Grange Pet Parade and many others.
La Grange-Opoly is launched to coincide with festivities surrounding the 140th anniversary of the Village of La Grange, founded in 1879 by Franklin D. Cossitt who dreamed of creating an idyllic suburb.
Game sales are a fundraiser for the La Grange Business Association.
La Grange-Opoly also complements the association's annual summer art exhibit which this year features 30 colorful games tables displayed in front of local businesses through Labor Day. The art exhibit, called "Fun and Games in La Grange," is sponsored by the Park District of La Grange and designed to encourage face-to-face interaction.
Only 500 La Grange-Opoly games are being initially produced; games may be pre-ordered online now at www.lagrangeevents.com.
