Hasbro unveils Monopoly hotline that will save Christmas
Christmas is a time to celebrate with loved ones and family - but if your family happens to be one of the many who are dusting off the Monopoly board and gearing up for an argument, Hasbro has a solution.
In a recent survey of 2,000 people Hasbro found that 51% of Monopoly games end in an argument.

As a result, the toy making giant wants to help save the Christmas of Monopoly-playing families in the UK, by rolling out a hotline staffed with experts armed with official game rules.
Just dial 0800 689 4903 and all of your family arguments will be solved!
The game features endless opportunities for an argument. People get cocky when winning, someone buys a property when they don't need it (just to spite the other players), and people take too long during their turn. People even row over who gets to be the banker.
Also anyone stealing from the bank, or making up rules in order to win are definitely frowned upon.
Just remember, it's pretend money and it's not real life!
