SAVANNOPOLY opens April 23rd, 6-8PM at new location at 251 Bull St with our local version of the classic board game Monopoly. Our non-profit partner is Habitat for Humanity of the Coastal Empire.
ABOUT THE SHOW
Savannopoly is inspired by the classic board game Monopoly, but with properties located in the Savannah area. In keeping with the spirit and look of the game, all work was done on panels of 6” x 8” with a 1.5” cradle. All the corner pieces are 8” x 8” x 1.5”. From squares to streets to landmarks and more, each piece evokes each individual location of our “Hostess with the Mostest” city.
