For hotel lovers and loyal guests with fond, sentimental memories tied to the New York institution, The Plaza Hotel has created a Monopoly-inspired game aptly called Plaza-opoly.

Instead of Atlantic Avenue and Park Place, players try to acquire properties like The Champagne Bar, The Fitzgerald Suite or The Grand Ballroom.

Another cool feature of the game are the “Now and Then” cards which tell players of the historic moments and locations of the hotel.

If you draw a “Now” card, you can advance to the Palm Court for afternoon tea. If you draw a “Then” card, you could be sent to the Terrace room where Marilyn Monroe once broke a shoulder strap.

Perhaps one of the most fun details: Instead of going to jail, unruly players will be sent to hotel security.
