Penticton is getting its very own Monopoly-themed board game.

“Penticton-Opoly” takes an original spin on the classic version of Monopoly by making the locations for sale parts of the Penticton community.

The game features many famous local spots like the Penticton Art Gallery, The Book Shop, Skaha Lake Park and many more. The most expensive property is the Downtown Penticton space at $425.

The new limited-edition board game, launched by Canadian-owned company Outset Media, will be available next week at Walmart Canada.
