Dubai's Enormous Monopoly Board Is Our Kind of Ridiculous

The board game that has caused countless arguments over fictional real estate acquisitions is now an awesome attraction in Dubai.
Business Insider reports on a giant Monopoly board that lives at the Mall of Emirates in Dubai.
The sight of which should bring smiles to millions or, more likely, cold sweats to those who wasted 14 hours playing the game while arguing over the going rate for a piece of Boardwalk.
Business Insider explains, via video, that the enormous board game is in celebration of two anniversaries: “As Monopoly celebrates its 80th anniversary, the Mall of Emirates in Dubai celebrates 10 years with a super-sized Monopoly game.”
The lavish location supplied video to show off its riches, via YouTube.
Adding to the fun and frivolity is a Mr. Monopoly; only we doubt that he is the real character until we see him drive off in a ridiculously small car game piece.
For those interested who might be in the area, Mall of the Emirates offers a bit more information on its website.
The website states that the event, from June 2-15, will go to a great cause as well. According to a press release, the exhibition will raise funds to aid those in Nepal.
The release states: “This year, important elements add an interesting twist: the properties will feature some of the UAE’s iconic destinations for the first time and players will win instant prizes and be able to make donations to the humanitarian organisation Red Crescent and help build houses for people in Nepal.”
As long as we don’t have to be banker and have our pick of game piece, we are all in. Let’s just call it a draw if this thing looms longer than a few hours.
