Despite the proliferation of board games and the invention of video games in the ’80s and ’90s, Monopoly remains a mainstay in every family cupboard called on to unite (or divide) the family all year round.

In spite of its timeless format, the Monopoly board has refused to stand still and has been reimagined in dozens of special edition iterations over the past decade. From the streets of your home city to the locations of your latest binge-inducing favourite TV series, you can now play the classic board game with virtually any theme.
