You Are Playing Monopoly Wrong and What Actually Happens at ‘Free Parking’
Hasbro conducted a survey of 2,000 adults and found that players are widely unfamiliar with Monopoly’s official rules. As a result, games regularly devolve into disputes.
“We’ll have experts on hand with the official rulebooks to instantly settle any disputes, and advise on how to resolve common complaints, with each person also having the opportunity to make a donation to Childline when they call,” Craig Wilkins, Marketing Director of Hasbro UK & Ireland, explained in the statement.
If you would like to consult the dispute hotline the next time your family member refuses to acknowledge landing on your property or steals money from the bank, just call 0800 689 4903 and report the cheater! This helpline will save a lot of spilled wine and ruined relationships.
