LONDONDERRY — Longtime residents, newcomers, and those nostalgic for their hometown may just want to play the second edition of Londonderry-opoly, a local version of the popular Parker Brothers game.

Forty local businesses are represented on the board and players can scoop up an apple orchard for $200, get stopped for speeding and sent to court, and collect $300 for passing Go.

The game with the hometown twist is being sold at Martinelli Travel located in the Apple Tree Mall as a fundraiser for the Londonderry Rotary. Martinelli owner Faye Sell is the fundraising chairwoman for the Londonderry Rotary, and all proceeds from the game sales will go to support the Rotary's many charities and scholarships.

"Parents buy them for kids who have gone off to college," Sell said.

"We also see realtors purchasing them for new residents that move into the homes they sell."

But longtime residents will also enjoy seeing the names of Londonderry landmarks.

The game also has Community Chest cards and chance cards, and features a history of Londonderry and some interesting facts about the town in the center of the board.

The first edition of the game was made in 1988. Both editions were made by Pride Distributors, a company based in Michigan that creates the games for town fundraisers. The game costs $30 each or two for $50. Copies can be reserved by calling Martinelli Travel at 434-4989.
