Local board game ALX-opoly now available for individual purchasing

(Updated 4:25 p.m.) ALX-opoly is finally available for the masses, offering many Alexandrians what may be their only chance to own property in the city.

The Chamber of Commerce launched the locally-themed board game last year, a riff on a “popular board game” that they can’t name for legal reasons. Players take pewter replicas of local icons like the Old Town Crier or a construction hat around a map littered with Alexandria streets — like King Street or Mount Vernon Avenue — or local landmarks like George Washington Masonic National Memorial and the Carlyle Lions.

The board game was officially released earlier this year, but had only been available for bulk purchases. The game is $40 and available at the Chamber of Commerce website for pick up or to be shipped, though that comes with a $22 fee.
