Dubai is getting its own Monopoly board next month

Family time in Dubai is about to get a lot more competitive, because an official board of Monopoly based on this fine city is about to launch.

For now, the identity of the landmarks to feature in the game are being kept under wraps, but over-competitive dads across the emirate are cracking their knuckles with delight – it won’t be long before owning that hotel on Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard (we guess) wins the game.

The game was announced in Dubai at Atlantis The Palm, with the superbly-moustached man himself, Mr. Monopoly, in attendance. Winning Moves, the company publishing the game under license from Hasbro, said: “We are thrilled to bring the official Dubai Monopoly board game to the residents and tourists of the region. This edition will be everything you love about the traditional game, adapted in a way that Dubaians will enjoy for generations to come.”

The game will launch on Tuesday November 5, so we’re sure there will be more than one type of fireworks that night (get it?).

So, where will you be vying with your rival property owners for? Palm Jumeirah? Dubai Marina? Madinat Jumeirah? Downtown Dubai? Maybe even the Burj Khalifa itself?
