The Down Easter’s Perfect Holiday Gift May Be This Maine Town In Monopoly Form
Are you looking for the perfect present for a Downeaster? Some warm gloves, maybe a gift card to help with some new winter tires. If that's just not going to do it, well, look no further!
Imagine buying up the properties of the fine town of Ellsworth, nearly 100 square miles of beautiful forest, gorgeous lakes, great stores, and many, many properties. Many taxable properties, with lots of money to gain from building homes on these properties and building places to rent for the townsfolk. Yeah, you may be thrown in jail just for landing on the wrong block, but occasionally you could land yourself with a community chest item that could bring good fortune.
No, we're not talking about owning Ellsworth. We're talking about owning Ellsworth in classic board game form.
Ellsworthopoly- It's A Thing
Check out what was posted to Facebook by the Ellsworth Walmart- an Ellsworth version of the classic board game Monopoly!
What's Featured In Ellsworthopoly?
The board features locations of Ellsworth including the beautiful Graham Lake and Acadia National Park. There's even a shout-out to one of Ellsworth's greatest eateries, Jordan's Snack Bar.
The name of the game is 'Ellsworthopoly' with its description of 'A fun game celebrating Ellsworth, Maine!'
A funny, yet kind of frustrating, plot on the board is 'Traffic Jam', which is one thing we are well aware of as a testament to the specialty of this particular board for this particular town. High Street tends to get a bit crowded for those venturing to Mount Desert Island and heading down one of Ellsworth's main arteries to get there.
Available At the Ellsworth Walmart Supercenter
The board game is available at this Walmart location at the price of $19.98. Searching on the Ellsworth Walmart site, I had a hard time finding this to order online, so if you need some questions answered visit the superstore's location page to find contact information.
