If playing Monopoly brings out your competitive side during family occasions, your loved ones might be about to resent you even more with this new addition to the set. The UAE has launched Dubai-opoly, a game to highlight the Emirate's famous landmarks. It's expected the board game will boost the city on an international scale when it goes on sale in the GCC region, with the tagline being "a sky-high experience!".
A picture of the game shows locations such as Al Barsha and Arabian Ranches, with corner squares including "go to 3 days public holiday" and pieces such as a camel and the Burj Khalifa to help playersmove around.
"By launching this unique initiative, we will promote Dubai's brand and boost its international profile," H.E. Hamad Buamim, President and CEO, Dubai Chamber, explained "Last year, the Chamber received over 600 international delegations and participated in more than 70 events abroad. Dubai-Opoly offers an ideal platform to showcase what Dubai has to offer businesses and tourists, while it also merges these two concepts together in a fun and interactive way."
We expect these to fly off the shelves!
