Rochester, the game 

You've landed on Ontario Beach Park. But, oh no, the algae count is high, so you can't swim. Lose a turn.

You're stuck in a roundabout on the way to Seabreeze. Pay fine of $50.

The food trucks are out! Yippee! Collect $10, and a case of heartburn.

Those examples are jokes, but a property trading game similar to Hasbro's Monopoly but based on Rochester will go on sale locally in time for the 2015 holiday season.

My Favorite Toy Box in Fairport partnered with the specialty board game manufacturer Late for the Sky in Cincinnati to create and produce Roc-Opoly.

Meghan Ludwig, co-owner of My Favorite Toy Box says that she'd like all of Rochester's iconic names and landmarks to be represented on the game board, including Kodak, Wegmans, and the Eastman House.

"There's a lot of rich history in Rochester," she says. "It'll be a collector's piece."

Ludwig says that the game will likely sell for $29.95 at the Fairport store or on the company's website, myfavoritetoybox.com.

The plan is a limited run of 1,500 games, Ludwig says. But if the demand is high, she says, they might make more. For more information: (888) 286-8510.
