In the Monopoly Merry Christmas Edition, players use Christmas-themed movers to make their way around the board collecting the very best things from the festive season, like a feast, brandy, baubles, elves - even roast potatoes! (Take that, Park Lane!)
Even the money is Christmassy in this edition, and players can spend it lavishly as they accumulate Workshops and Grottos with the aim to reap the most rental income, and defeat the other other players.
Chance and Community Chest cards are replaced with Santa's Sack and Christmas Crackers in this version, and yes, you still have to watch out for taxes and jail - despite that fact that it's Christmas!
This board game is just oozing Christmas spirit - I can't think of anything better than playing this with the family while nibbling on a mince pie or three.
