You Can Phone An Actual Monopoly Hotline To Settle Christmas Arguments
Toy company Hasbro have announced they'll be running a Monopoly helpline from 24-26th December 2016, designed to stop fights breaking out when the turkey's been cleared away.
A survey found that 51% of Monopoly games end in a row, and they just had to do something about it.Craig Wilkins, Marketing Director of Hasbro UK & Ireland, commissioned the research and said:
"Monopoly is one of the best-loved board games of all time, because itís 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 to 26th December, when families will be able to call 0800 689 4903 and get mediation on any game-based arguments."
Check out the offical Top 10 reasons families row over the game:
1. People making up rules
2. People being too cocky when winning
3. Someone buying a property you want, even when they don’t need it
4. People taking too long to take their turn
5. Someone stealing from the bank
6. Someone deliberately mis-counting their move
7. Who gets to be the banker
8. The property auction process
9. Choice over tokens
10. What the rules of “Free Parking” are
Among the top reasons for Christmas Monopoly fights are people making up rules that don't exist, and gloating when they claim victory. We don't know what you're talking about...
