Experience Fort St. John as a board game

FORT ST. JOHN, BC — Fort St. John has appeared in Monopoly spin-offs before, and a new one has now joined the fold.

The local Chamber of Commerce released its edition of Fort St Johnopoly in 2013. The game was extremely well received and enjoyed by locals at the time, according to Fort St. John North Peace Museum curator Heather Sjoblom.

“Even though it’s almost 10 years later, these games are still selling well,” says Sjoblom. “People like the local connection.”

This version of the game is still available at the North Peace Museum Gift Shop, as well as the Fort St. John Hospital Auxiliary.

For those looking for something a little newer but less local, Outset Media has teamed up with Walmart Canada to launch their own limited-edition spin-off called Fort St. John-opoly. This release is the latest in a series of games featuring Canadian cities such as Fort Erie and Prince Albert.

This version of the game is available at local Walmart stores or through their website.
