Mr Monopoly, the world-famous board game icon, is arriving in Qatar, ready to discover the capital city. He will select the brands and experiences to represent the exclusive lifestyle in the soon-to-be-launched Monopoly Doha Board. Mr Monopoly is touring Doha, discovering the city to handpick features to provide you with a custom-build, brand-new Doha Board game experience. Throughout the following weeks, both Doha residents and tourists will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet and greet the most famous board game celebrity.
“Join the board game hero in his numerous activities around the city and start guessing the stand-out attractions and brands he will award to be featured in the local edition of the globally loved and played board game,” a press statement noted.
Mr Monopoly’s trip to Doha will see him soak up the destination, enjoying the nation’s cultural authenticity and modernity. He will explore iconic locations, experience must-try adventures, discover the Qatari culture, art and nature, understand the city’s future developments, and enjoy the shopping zones. His location scouting will determine the brands and experiences, which will form the extraordinary and exclusive Doha edition board game.
Winning Moves, manufacturers of the official Doha version of Monopoly, under licence from Hasbro, said: “This is our first official Doha Monopoly board game. We are delighted to develop a game that will represent the destination’s authenticity, heritage and future. This edition will be everything residents and tourists love about the traditional game, adapted in a way that Qataris will feel proud to play and enjoy for generations to come.”
Berthold Trenkel, chief operating officer of Qatar Tourism, said: “It’ll be our pleasure to welcome Mr Monopoly to Doha and to help him experience everything this incredible destination has to offer. The Doha Monopoly board will be the perfect keepsake for visitors, as it promises to showcase the very best experiences and varied landscapes for players to enjoy at home, long after their trip.”
Banana Island Resort Doha by Anantara added, “When we heard that Mr Monopoly was touring iconic landmarks on his debut visit to Doha, we knew we had to be the first location on his journey. It is an absolute pleasure to welcome him to the shores of Banana Island and we look forward to helping him ticket off a few bucket-list items on his visit.”
