You Can Now Get Monopoly Speed Just In Time For Christmas
With Christmas around the corner, it's nearly time for the joy of the festive season - oh and of course, the annual scrap you have around the dinner table when you get the post-turkey Monopoly out.
It's common knowledge that finishing a game can take ABSOLUTELY AGES, especially, if like me, your family are a bunch of board game snakes.
But thankfully Monopoly Speed is a quicker version, meaning you can get round the game in no time, which means you may even bypass some of the frustrated rages that we all know and love, keeping the family unit together for another year.
In fact, it's so quick, that the full game has to be completed in 10 minutes, which means less time for each and every family member to stab you in the back and rob you blind. Any excuse to watch this video again:
It works by letting everyone play at once. There are only four tokens, so you could even pick your least bright family members to play with you to ensure victory (that's what I'd do anyway).
Everyone rolls and buys without having to wait for their turn. Through the four rounds, players have to race to buy, trade and sell properties, with no break between each stage, and there are two Go! spaces to speed things up.
Sounds like a stress TBH, and also leaves a lot of scope for your snakey sister to cheat - but you'll have to put your trust in them.
If you prefer to take things slower, and a seven hour board game isn't enough for you - Hasbro have covered all bases by releasing their longest version yet - with three times as many properties as the OG.
The extended version of the classic is on sale now for $19.99 (£15.54) and it promises to be an absolute grueller.
The advert reads: "Think the original Monopoly game takes forever to play? It's got nothing over this edition of the Monopoly game! Longest...Monopoly game...ever.
"Even bankruptcy won't get a player out of this Monopoly game! The game doesn't end until someone owns every single property - and there are three versions of each in this board game.
"Believe us when we say it's long. It has 66 properties. And there is only one die; no more doubles. So sit back and get ready for a long time to get around the board."
