Poll: Would You Play Tysons-Themed Monopoly?

Would you play a version of Monopoly based on Tysons? Yes — it does exist.

The Walmart by the Spring Hill Metro station used to carry “Tysons Corner Opoly” — what appears to be a local version of the popular board game. (Hat tip to Tysons Reporter’s former editor Vernon Miles, who spotted this on reddit.)

Tysons Reporter — along with the help of four store employees — hunted through the store yesterday (Monday) for the game to no avail. An assistant store manager said that the game was selling very well recently and now appears to be sold out.

The store manager said he does not know if or when the item will be back in stock.

It’s unclear how many of the comments on reddit are jokes versus actual information about the game. Here are a few of the 90+ comments:

“‘Tyson’s corner opoly’ the game of traffic congestion and looking for a parking spot.”

“Toilet Bowl Building” is spot on. We all know immediately what it refers to, even without a pic.

“Walk light is too short and you only made it halfway across Route 7. Lose a turn.”

Sound like something you’d choose for game night? Let Tysons Reporter know if you would play Tysons Corner Opoly.

And if someone reading this has a version and is willing to let the Tysons Reporter team borrow it for game night, our email is [email protected]
