Houstonopoly comes to Houston!
If you’re a lover of board games and Instagram-worthy experiences, then roll the dice on this one! Houstonopoly is a 10,000-square-foot life-sized board game inspired by the classic Hasbro game Monopoly, with a Houston twist!
Upon entry guests will become one of the game pieces as they make their way through the colorful board with a thousand Houstonopolian dollars. Make no mistake, this is no ordinary board game! Classic Monopoly properties like the Reading Railroad and Boardwalk have been replaced with their Houstonian counterparts–from iconic landmarks and events to celebrity murals.
The 10,000-square-foot game space features 13 click-worthy stops along with notable neighborhoods like Third Ward, The Galleria, Minute Maid and local landmarks, including NASA and the Harris County Jail.
Publicist and event planner Sherrie Handrinos who has brought the game to life best describes the game as: “I’ve been creating events for over 15 years and now that the city is opening up again, I wanted to create something that people can really have fun with…The best way I describe this is that old movie Honey I Shrunk the Kids. It is almost like you’re in that movie, but on a game board that’s all Houston-themed!”
Local artist Franky Cardona has hand painted each display and backdrop, including a lifelike mural of hometown celebrities Travis Scott and Beyoncé among many others.
