The Sublette County SAFV Task Force (Sexual Assault Family Violence) has a unique gift idea, just in time for the holiday season. SAFV has worked with a company to create a Monopoly-type board game that features local Sublette County business and organizations as the "properties" on the game board. This game is called "SubletteOpoly", mirroring the famous Monopoly board real estate game that has been around since 1935.
On Sublette County’s version, QEP, Shell, EOG Resources, and Sublette Communications hold the railroad spots. Allen Agency and Ultra Petroleum hold the utility slots. The Bank of Sublette County is sponsoring the SubletteOpoly money. Many businesses across Sublette County are participating and have purchased advertising to appear on the individual property places and have cards in their names. In addition, many individuals contributed to support the effort. The game box has photographs taken from all around Sublette County.
Only 750 games were made, and they are available now. "SubletteOpoly" sells for $25. A complete list of stores selling the game was not available as of the time of this article, however games are available at the Office Outlet stores in Pinedale and Big Piney.
