New board game in OB

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - From tres chic to unique, there is no B quite like OB. Now a group of designing women from the Ocean Beach Merchants Association have captured some of it's familiar landmarks in a board game, called Ocean Beach-opoly.

Local businesses owners bought spaces that you in turn can land in and purchase yourself with sponsored money.

The game has been OB-ized with tokens like surf boards, flip-flops and peace signs, and has totally random and far-out cards.

Houses and hotels are now cottages and mansions. Nobody's going to ever build a hotel in OB, and getting lost in the Antique Mall has replaced another well-known Monopoly square.

Other than that the rules are pretty much the same. Acquire property, and people have to pay, when they land there.

There are some bargains on the board. Sunset Cliffs and the OB Pier are only $250 each. There are wonderful memories as well.

You can order the game online now. It will be available for sale from OB merchants on December 2. All proceeds go back into the community to fund local programs. And every time you pass go, it's like deja vu all over again.
