The latest Mississauga “Monopoly” board game has hit the streets and is in stores now.
Mississauga-Opoly, developed by Canadian-owned and operated Outset Media and based on the Parker Brothers best-selling board game of all time that debuted in 1935, has been launched on a limited-edition basis.
The game is available at Walmart stores across Canada and online at Walmart.ca.
“Grab your family and try to become the most successful real estate tycoon in the house. The money is imaginary, the competition is real and family bragging rights are on the line,” Mississauga-Opoly creators said in a news release, adding the limited-edition board game “celebrates the great things Mississauga offers.”
Mississauga-Opoly, the latest Mississauga version of the popular board game to be released over the years, features locations on the game board that include Celebration Square, Jack Darling Memorial Park and the Art Gallery of Mississauga, among other local spots.
On the cover of the game box can be found a silhouetted Mississauga skyline in addition to artwork giving nods to Celebration Square, Erindale Park and Pearson Airport among other attractions in the city.
The creators note that with people spending more time at home the past two years or so, board games have experienced a resurgence.
Outset Media, based in Victoria, B.C., says it has received tremendous widespread support for its board game concept. As such, it’s adding dozens more towns and cities across Canada as it releases more location-specific “Monopoly” games in 2022.
The company, founded in 1996, has produced a variety of award-winning games and puzzles that promote learning, fun and family time, Outset officials say.
One of the earliest Mississauga versions of Monopoly to hit the market was Mississauga On Board, which was released in 2001.
Among other local attractions, it featured images of City Hall and former longtime mayor Hazel McCallion on the cover of the game box.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies advertising
