People outside of Sarasota may know little or nothing about the Bayfront Park or Longboat Key. But if you’re from Sarasota, it’s a big deal!

SARASOTA-OPOLY celebrates the Sarasota places and landmarks locals will surely know.

The games are launched exclusively at the local Walmart stores in Sarasota!

While they have no affiliation with the makers of Monopoly and do not use any protected trademarks, the game is reminiscent of the classic board game.

“We research several cities and communities around Florida to make a very localized game about a specific area," one of the owners of the game's production company said. "We always make sure that the locals love their town before we take on a project. We try to make the content as authentic as possible. So, we are reaching as many people as we can. We launch the sales exclusively at the local Walmart store in Sarasota. Naturally, Walmart likes to connect to their local customers, and everyone appreciates the fact that the games are made in the USA. Several other Florida cities are on the drawing board for development and manufacturing.”

The games retail for $19.98 and sell quickly. The store manager is watching the supplies closely, so if they are sold out today, you can be certain more are already on the way.

You can buy properties like the Ringling Museum of Art, Ed Smith Stadium, Myakka River State Park and more.
