Winner winner chicken dinner – you can now stay in a board game-themed house in New South Wales and Queensland…
Before you draw two cards or check the rulebook, the gaming masters at Mattel have partnered with leading digital travel company Booking.com to unveil three properties for the perfect digital detox getaway filled with a little friendly board game competitiveness — House of UNO on the Sunshine Coast (Maleny, Queensland) and Pictionary Palace and Scrabble Shack in New South Wales’ Blue Mountains (Medlow Bath and Katoomba) – all from just $10* a night!
New South Wales guests who book the Pictionary Palace or Scrabble Shack will swap smartphones and emails for pencils and dictionaries. Stays will be in idyllic three- to four-bedroom properties in the serene Blue Mountains; surrounded by eucalyptus forests, they are perfect for a family getaway to relax, recharge and reconnect. You can also expect to be immersed by board game-inspired objects including large-scale Scrabble wall art and oversized sand timers (no pressure!). Plus, you’ll have access to the well-known master games and fan favourite variations like UNO Junior, Pictionary Air and Harry Potter Scrabble.
For those in sunny Queensland, you’ll be able to enjoy time away at the nostalgic House of UNO – a beautiful hideaway elevated in the treetops of the Sunshine Coast hinterland. The property boasts incredible surrounding rainforest views – seen through a glass-encased living area. Expect a dose of nostalgia as your surroundings are transformed with Draw 4 pillows, UNO-themed throws and exclusive UNO pyjamas to lounge in. Plus, you’ll be able to sip your morning coffee from bespoke UNO mosaic mugs and printed ‘Reverse Card’ coasters. Tacky or awesome, it’s your call – just remember to yell out ‘Uno’!
Better yet, for a limited time, Aussies can book their stay for the price of a game; just $10 per night for the House of Uno, or just $39 per night for the Scrabble Shack or Pictionary Palace*. Bookings for up to two nights of accommodation are available now for stays from Friday 23 October 2020.
