Monopoly

The game of capitalist supremacy celebrated its 40th anniversary in 1975. Over 200 million games have been sold worldwide, more than five billion little green houses have been "built", and a set made by Alfred Dunhill, with gold houses and silver hotels, has sold for $25,000.

The longest game in history lasted 70 straight days. Oh, and one other important fact. Every game you’ve ever played with your Dad, he’s been hiding a £500 note under the table. Bet you.
