The game, which launched in the spring, features USPS-inspired tokens, including a collection box, a roll of stamps and packages. Players can also set up Post Offices and distribution centers.
The game, which sells for $44.99, is available at usps.com.
• U.S. Stamps of the ’80s, a 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzle, features a 19-by-27-inch collage that includes stamp releases such as Desert Cactus Plants (1981), Olympics (1984), Special Olympics (1987) and Dinosaurs (1989).
The puzzle sells for $17.99 and is available on usps.com.
