You either love it, or hate it – Monopoly has been known to divide families, friendships and relationships, so why would you want to play a life-sized version of it? It might have something to do with the cool oversized hats that you get to wear – each of them denoting a different playing token, like the dog, or the boot, or the top hat.

There’s jumbo dice, those tiny green and red houses, and you can even don jailhouse uniforms to really get into the groove.
