The Doha English Speaking School (DESS) is thrilled to have been selected as one of the iconic destinations on the official Doha edition of the Monopoly board game.

The popular game launched the Doha edition this week, revealing the chosen landmarks during a VIP launch event, where they invited the DESS team for the big reveal. The square on the board was accepted by Principal Sean Sibley and Head of School Charlotte Molloy.

Mr Monopoly scouted many of the well-known destinations in Doha last November to make his selection. After meeting the DESS children when he visited the school, the board game hero invited the students to join his journey around the city. The children accompanied him to the Museum of Islamic Art and the National Museum of Qatar, as well as the Geekdom in Msheireb Downtown Doha.

While hundreds of brands sought a spot on the board, only a selected few were chosen to be part of the timeless board game that encapsulates the essence of Qatar – past, present and future.

According to Principal Sibley, the board game will be a lovely keepsake for families – past, present and future.

We are honoured to be part of this edition which features aspects of Doha life, history and culture. We are very proud to have been chosen and recognised as an iconic landmark of Doha.

Qatar Tourism officially unveiled the Doha edition of the famous board game at The Pearl-Qatar. It will soon be available across all toy stores and bookstores in Qatar and online.
