DOHA, Qatar, May 26 (UPI) -- Organizers of the 2011 Doha Trade Fair in Qatar said this year's event will feature a Guinness World Record attempt for the world's largest Monopoly board.

A partner in the fair, q.media events, said the board will be unveiled with the first dice roll scheduled for 4 p.m. June 4, the first day of the fair, Gulf News reported Thursday.

Guinness World Records said the board must measure more than 1,550 square feet, the record previously set in Germany, and an adjudicator will be on hand to verify the board's measurements and ensure it complies with the British version of the game's rules.

Organizers said Monopoly games with two-person teams will be played on the board June 5 to June 13. Players will be chosen from the Doha Trade Fair Facebook page, they said.
