Dog Monopoly Exists And Oh, Look, All Your Money's Gone
Nothing starts a family feud like a good old game of Monopoly. Having your bank account wiped out by a hotel on Mayfair or Park Lane is a guaranteed way to have you flipping the table in rage.
The classic Hasbro board game for masochists has been catered for all tastes over the years, from Disney to Harry Potter. Now, an unofficial version of the game will definitely get some people's tails wagging - or drooping.
Dog Opoly celebrates man's best friend, the humble dog, and looks like a woofing good time. Until you end up destitute, filing for bankruptcy and begging your mates for a fiver, of course.
The rules of the game are more or less the same as a regular game of Monopoly. Instead of London locations that no average millennial would now have a chance of buying, though, you buy individual breeds of dogs - presumably ranging from absolute mongrels to the sort you'd see doing tricks at Crufts.
The game tokens have had a canine update too - you can become the proud owner of a butcher shop, a piece of meat or a fire hydrant, ever popular for pups in need of a whizz.
Players collect $200 whenever they pass the imaginatively-named Go Fetch, or you might be forced to cough up $200 because you have the dreaded fleas. Insert your own STD clinic joke here.

The description says the game isn't suitable for kids under the age of 8, because there's always some numpty kid who puts the pieces in their mouth and chokes on them apparently.
This dogsbody's version of Monopoly is available on Amazon for the weirdly specific price of £34.95. It seems a bit steep to us, but hey, if you really fucking love dogs you'll probably fork out for it anyway.
If you're not a fan of dogs, don't worry: a similar version of the game called Cat Opoly is available for all you feline-lovers out there.
Doing a bit of a trawl on the Amazon site, it looks like the manufacturer of Dog Opoly does other Monopoly-style boards, including a few other animal-themed ones such as horses, birds and, er, fishing. Oh well. To each their own.
So there you have it. Have a go of Dog Opoly if you fancy a game of Monopoly guaranteed to leave you feeling ruff afterwards.
