Ah, Dubai. The city of wealth, luxury and exoticism. As soon as you step inside one of the malls, you will immediately be embraced by the amazing atmosphere of its golden steroids. And now you can indulge in another one-of-a-kind experience – a game of Monopoly, in real life size.
To celebrate the game’s 80th anniversary, the Mall of the Emirates has installed a huge Monopoly board marked with iconic locations in Dubai on the ground floor of the property. Along with live commentary by a real Mr. Monopoly, participating players can walk on the board with huge game pieces, roll the gigantic dices, and – if unlucky enough – be locked into the barred jail. According to the mall’s spokesperson, money raised from this instalment will be sent to Nepal for house-building purpose.
