Before the start of the event, the 2 brothers have a feel playing with the latest MONOPOLY EMPIRE game. As participants must be at least 8 years old, the younger brother could not take part but nevertheless, he cheered and supported his older brother and friends taking part in this record breaking moment. All participants taking part in the event must play continuously for 30 minutes from start of the game and play without any break.
