Who remembers this board game favorite?
What may be the only remaining copy of Troyopoly was auctioned off on Christmas Eve via eBay. The winning bid? The game sold for an impressive $32.82 (U.S.)
The one interesting note is that the seller is from Essex, England (that's in Europe).
The description of the product:
RARE BOARD GAME, TROYOPOLY, THE GAME OF TROY, NEW YORK, HOME OF UNCLE SAM. THE OBJECT OF THE GAME IS TO BECOME THE WEALTHIEST RESIDENT OF YOUR COMMUNITY BY BUYING, OPERATING, AND SELLING LOCAL BUSINESSES. A CUSTOM BOARD GAME FROM PRIDE DISTRIBUTORS Inc, FUND RAISING Div.7453 Anne Ct, W.BLOOMFIELD, Ml 48033. CIRCA 1985. I THINK THIS IS QUITE A RARE GAME AS I CAN`T FIND ANOTHER ONE ANYWHERE ON E-BAY FOR SALE. CONDITION IS VERY GOOD AND I THINK IT IS COMPLETE. THERE IS A LITTLE CURVE TO THE BOARD WHERE IT HAS BEEN IN THE BOX UNUSED FOR SO LONG, THIS MAY FLATTEN OUT IN USE, BOARD FACE IS VERY CLEAN. A VERY NICE ADDITION TO YOUR COLLECTION.
So, if increasing taxes and water rates have put the squeeze on your wallet, head down to the basement and rummage through those dusty bins and boxes. You may strike $32.82. At the very least you may find one of these:
