Hasbro invites fans to play experiential version of the world’s favourite game

To celebrate the launch of My Monopoly – the Monopoly game that allows players to personalise properties, tokens and more – visitors to Westfield Stratford this weekend will get the chance to experience Monopoly like never before.

Hasbro will be inviting shoppers to take part in an experiential version of the world’s favourite board game as part of a campaign activated by OMD UK, and in partnership with Talon, Grand Visual and Ambient.

For more information on MONOPOLY, go to www.HasbroGaming.com or Facebook.com/MonopolyUK.

From 9.00 -18.00 on Saturday 9th August, the digital display at Four Dials will become a giant interactive Monopoly game. Shoppers can use their smartphone to select their favourite mover and upload a photo,  before trying their luck at a totally unique version of the game.

Those selected to play will see their uploaded photo slot into their chosen My Monopoly mover and be invited to take their place on the ‘GO’ square in front of the interactive board, where a simple shake of their phone will set the dice tumbling. Their personalised mover will chart their progress around the board but they should be prepared for a few ‘live’ surprises as they make their way round!

For those not playing, anyone who uploads a Monopoly inspired photo to Instagram using #MyMonopoly over the course of the day has the chance to appear on the big screen in-between gameplay. As well as all that, Mr Monopoly himself will be dropping by to meet fans.

Martin Rowe, Monopoly Brand Manager, said “My Monopoly puts the player at the heart of the game. So to celebrate its launch, we wanted to create a completely unique experience that gives fans the chance to step inside the world of Monopoly.”
