Collsopoly: It's What You Want to Play!
For ten bucks, you can support the Newbie School with this fundraiser that's bursting with as much charm as the borough itself.
When we initially wrote about the Collsopoly board game in our roundup of Collingswood ephemera making the rounds on eBay, it was a fun surprise to discover that copies of the Monopoly-themed board game—a one-time school fundraiser—still existed, somewhere on the Internet, waiting to be purchased.
We didn't actually think there were any of these legendary artifacts still in circulation in town.
But according to an announcement from the borough, a limited quantity of these babies are still out there, and one can come home with your for a measly ten bucks.
Some very careful language promises that "players compete for properties that are, or were once, a part of Collingswood.
"You can’t buy Boardwalk or Park Place in this game, but you can become the proud owner of classic Collingswood stores, restaurants and businesses," according to the borough press release.
"Since this is an original edition, printed more than 10 years ago, some of the ‘stops’ are no longer in town but did contribute to the original game."
Find out how you can pick up one of these landmark gems of local history for a scant $10 investment by calling the Mark Newbie School at 856-926-5706.
