If you’ve ever wanted to bicker over Chilliwack land deals, now is your chance.

A Victoria-based game company is releasing city-specific versions of Monopoly throughout the year, and Chilliwack-Opoly will be released next week.

Each space is marked with well-known Chilliwack landmarks, parks, schools and businesses.

You can buy Townsend Park, Dickens Sweets and British Museum, or Kwiyeqel Secondary School, and rent the properties out as well. You could own Fieldhouse Brewing, and rent it out for $14. And just like the original Monopoly, you can build developments on your land.

Chilliwack Community Forest, the Chilliwack Curling Club and the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve are just a few local spots on the board.

And just like Monopoly, there are setbacks to be had. In an image shared by the company, Outset Media, one of those setbacks would include eating too much pizza at Fieldhouse and losing a turn “to recover.”

Outset Media has partnered with Walmart to release versions of the games in cities across Canada in 2021, a press release notes.

They are hoping they’ll be popular, as more and more people are looking for fun games to play at home during the pandemic.

“Outset Media is excited to help families across Canada celebrate where they live. These games were created to help people appreciate some things they cherish about their community,” said Jean-Paul Teskey, senior vice-president of Outset Media.

Abbotsford-Opoly was released in 2019 by the same company, in partnership with Walmart.
