Monopoly Christmas hotline mediating family disputes

An essential part of Christmas for many families is digging the board games out and getting competitive.

But when everyone is set on winning, can it ruin the festive spirit?

The makers of Monopoly have set up a Christmas hotline to stop people getting into arguments over the game. It's in response to a survey they carried out revealing 51% of Monopoly games end in a row.

Craig Wilkins, the Marketing Director of game company Hasbro (that promotes the Monopoly brand), said that arguments are caused because ‘Everyone loves to bend the rules.’
