Monopoly chiefs have set up a Christmas hotline to prevent board game bust-ups over the festive period.

 

The helpline is to open in light of a survey that found 51% of Monopoly games end in a row.

 

The most common cause of quarrels was due to people "making up the rules as they go along".

 

The hotline will open from 24th - 26th December, when families will be able to get mediation on any game-based arguments.

Thank goodness for that,a splendid idea and much needed.:lol:

I have already booked the Racing Car for my next game.

And the reasons for arguments breaking out

1. People making up rules-:|

2. People being too cocky when winning-

Why not so long as I win

3. Someone buying a property you want, even when they don't need it-

Never

4. People taking too long to take their turn-

Never

5. Someone stealing from the bank-

Sure is tempting to have a hundred or so away

6. Someone deliberately mis-counting their move-

Cough

7. Who gets to be the banker-I have to be

Banker,people already asking me why is it always you

8. The property auction process-

He he

9. Choice over tokens-

Yes

10. What the rules of "Free Parking" are-

Not got a clue.

 

Just noting the number for help down.Just in case.

The Monopoly Hotline can be reached on 0800 689 4903

That really depends on who manages the car park. If it has been contracted out to Parking Eye, then fees may apply.
