UAE: Monopoly Abu Dhabi Edition Board Game Hits the Market

Monopoly gets a custom Abu Dhabi makeover in a new regional edition. The UAE capital now has its own customised Monopoly board game, with the new editions hitting stores across Abu Dhabi on Monday.

Developed over the past month, the Monopoly Abu Dhabi Edition captures the experiences of the emirate’s beaches, desert and attractions. Only a select few famous brands, landmarks, and experiences made the cut.

The new board was previewed at the recent Mother of the Nation festival in Abu Dhabi over the weekend, where attendees got a first play on an oversized promotional rendition. It includes iconic spots like the Corniche, Ferrari World, Louvre Abu Dhabi and Sir Bani Yas Island represented across property and chance squares.

The board game will include:

  • Brown square – Abu Dhabi Corniche and Al Wathba Fossil Dunes Reserve
  • Light Blue square – The National Aquarium, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and Yas Waterworld
  • Pink square – Nurai Island, Saadiyat Beach and Yas Circuit
  • Orange square – Mina Fish Market, Reem Mall and Yas Mall
  • Red square – Cranleigh School, Aldar Academy and Aldar HQ
  • Yellow square – Al Ain Oasis, Liwa Region and Sir Bani Yas Island
  • Green square – Saadiyat Lagoons, Saadiyat Grove and Yas Acres
  • Dark Blue square – The Louvre Abu Dhabi and Zayed National Museum
  • Travel square – Etihad Airways

“It has been a privilege to experience an extraordinary adventure in Abu Dhabi while making this board,” said Jake Houghton, Territory Head for Middle East and Asia of Winning Moves – manufacturers of the official Abu Dhabi Monopoly Edition under license from Hasbro.

“We hope players will experience the same thrill! This board will bring all the excitement, culture and heritage of Abu Dhabi into the homes of those who play.”
