NORWICH - A long anticipated board game with local ties is soon to hit local store shelves after a small group of area volunteers spent more than a year and a half creating, designing and dreaming it up to benefit community members of greater Chenango.
The localized version inspired by the ever popular Parker Brothers classic “Monopoly,” Chenango-opoly is a game board that allows players to negotiate their way around Chenango County while buying and selling pieces of various real estate.
Chenango-opoly was a brainchild of John Antonowicz, a Norwich local who pitched the idea to members of the Chenango United Way board as a way generate funding while creating a piece of history for the Chenango community. The game was sponsored by the Chenango United Way. All revenue from gross sales will go to the nonprofits 2016 annual campaign.
