Monopoly chiefs are helping you stick it to your Nan this year, setting up a Christmas hotline to save us from board game bust-ups, after research found over half of games played end in tears.
Craig Wilkins, Marketing Director of Hasbro UK & Ireland who commissioned the research told The Sun, “Monopoly is one of the best-loved board games of all time, because it’s a way for families to spend some quality time together."
“However, our research found that Monopoly games can regularly end in chaos, with some friends and family members stopping at nothing to win.
“Our hotline will be open from 24th – 26th December, when families will be able to call 0800 689 4903 and get mediation on any game-based arguments.
“We’ll have experts on hand with the official rulebooks to instantly settle any disputes, and advise on how to resolve common complaints, with each person also having the opportunity to make a donation to Childline when they call.”
