NEW BOARD GAME FROM MARTHA'S VINEYARD TO BE UNVEILED THIS SPRING

 EDGARTOWN, Mass., April 19 /PRNewswire/ -- International Crafts announced that VINEYARDOPOLY(TM), the new and exciting board game from Martha's Vineyard, will be available this spring. Charmingly illustrated and designed by native Vineyarder Kathy Beauchemin, the game includes quality wooden game pieces and genuine shells.
 "Not just a game you will play but one that will recreate your fondest Vineyard memories." Buy and sell your favorite island properties, travel down Main Street, up Circuit Avenue, across Dock Street and up-island, stopping at your favorite shops along the way. Discover the Ice Cream Candy Bazaar and stay at the Outermost Inn. Try to catch the golden ring at the flying horses. Watch out! Don't get caught in the Standby Line.
 The game is the realization of a longtime dream of Beauchemin. "Born and raised on Martha's Vineyard I always felt privileged, and it's that privilege that I want to share with others. The natural blending of earth, water and sun is the quintessential atmosphere of Martha's Vineyard, which has been captured in the game. I want to keep people's memories of the island alive year round no matter where they are."
 The cooperation of numerous island business, services, and non-profit organizations was essential in making this game the perfect gift for people of all ages.
 Fifty cents from the sale of each game will be donated to the Boys and Girls Club of Martha's Vineyard. "In my youth it was known as the Edgartown Boy's Club, where we all gathered for the Saturday night dance. It was the highlight of the week and featured a live band. Many hearts were won and broken on that dance floor." Since then the club's activities have expanded to include young adults with basketball and other sports.
 VINEYARDOPOLY will be introduced to the general public during Memorial Day weekend at Fliggers of Edgartown, Eastaway Clothing in Oak Bluffs and Bunch of Grapes Bookstore in Vineyard Haven where the artist will be available to sign the game. VINEYARDOPOLY will be sold by numerous island merchants after June 1, 1994.
 The game will also be available from International Crafts by sending $29.95 plus $3 shipping and handling by check or money order to International Crafts, P.O. Box 2816, Oak Bluffs, MA 02557.
