What happens when an iconic hotel meets a classic board game? Plaza-opoly.
Debuting later this month, the game features Plaza-inspired instructions, playing cards and themed board spaces. Players can challenge one another to become the wealthiest winner by purchasing hotel-branded squares.
The board game is the first venture into the game world for the property. It is $60 at and sold The Plaza Boutique.
Six game tokens are characters and amenities inspired by The Plaza, including Eloise’s pug dog Weenie, her turtle Skipperdee, a luxury car, a champagne bottle, a tea cup and (The Big) apple.
After checking in at the Front Desk, players roll the dice to move around via The Rose Club, The Eloise Suite, The Plaza Food Hall and even Home Alone 2, filmed at the hotel.
Players can take their "winnings" straight to the bank and "purchase" their favorite Plaza destinations, such The Champagne Bar, explore "The Great Gatsby" in The Fitzgerald Suite, The Grand Ballroom and The Shinn Murals. Each space has a corresponding Title Deed Card that provides a value and details of each location. Players get cards such as “Order Room Service” or “Carriage Ride in Central Park." Instead of jail, players risk getting sent to Hotel Security.
