Christmas dinner went down a treat, the Queen’s speech has finished and now is the time many families across the UK sit down for a film or a board game.

Monopoly, Charades and Trivial Pursuit are popular choices, with the first dividing households and causing Christmas arguments.

Someone always nabs Park Lane or Mayfair – and that lucky player nearly always wins.

The fight continues for houses, hotels and those pesky yellow squares that hardly anyone lands on.

It may be the perfect storm for post-lunch rows, but it’s certainly a game that brings the family together.

Have we just described your household? If not, which popular Christmas game is your activity of choice?
