Game-makers Late for the Sky based in Cincinnati debuted “Seaside-Opoly,” a licensed collegiate board games with a property-trading theme with locations based in Seaside. The game is available at Walmart.
But Leila Vernor, a longtime Seaside resident, alerted us to a much earlier Seaside monopoly-style game long before “Seaside-Opoly” was released this year.
Vernor’s husband Oliver, mayor of Seaside from 1995-1998, developed “Seaside-opoly” through Hometown Games in Chatsworth, California, during his term.
“It really shocked me when I saw it,” she said this week of the new game released this summer.
