The makers of Monopoly are here to save your family Christmas from descending into chaos.
According to the THE SUN, Hasbro has set up a holiday hotline which families can call between December 24 and December 26 to resolve game-based arguments.
Experts will be on hand during this time, using the official rule book to instantly settle any disagreements, while each caller will also have the opportunity to make a donation to the UK charity Childline.
Craig Wilkins, Marketing Director of Hasbro UK & Ireland, shared “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.”
2000 respondents took part in the study, with the most common disagreements occurring over players “making up the rules, buying a property someone else wants, taking too long, stealing from the bank and being too cocky when things are going their way.”
Disputes often occur before the game even starts too, with players fighting over which token to use. Twenty-six percent, it was revealed, said the puppy dog was their favourite.
