This might be the only slice of real estate many folks in Vancouver can afford

This might be the only slice of real estate many of us folks in Vancouver can afford.

It comes in the form of landmarks on the limited edition Vancouver-Opoly, which launched again this month both online and in stores.

A spin on the classic Hasbro board game, Monopoly, the Vancouver version features Stanley Park and downtown Vancouver in the pricey spots of the original Boardwalk and Park Place.

In Vancouver-Opoly, instead of getting trapped in jail and having their turn delayed, game players get trapped in traffic jams.

Paying luxury or utility taxes has been replaced with property taxes costing just $200, and a $75 parking ticket.

Canadian owned and operated Outset Media partnered with Walmart to create and sell the game, available now, here.

“We are ecstatic that the citizens of Vancouver have chosen to welcome us into their homes and include us in weekly game nights with friends and family,” explained Outset Media vice-president Jean Paul Teskey.

“We look forward to continuing the celebration of Vancouver and other local communities across Canada,” Teskey said.

Other Vancouver properties available for pretend-purchase include Robson, Granville, Commercial, and Main Streets along with the Vancouver Aquarium, BC Place, Granville Island, and the University of British Columbia.

Previously, Monopoly-like board games have been created with the City of Vancouver in mind.
