Floptopoly in action

Widdington Games, in conjunction with former Royal Bank of Botchland boss Sir Fred Th'shred, has used part of his enormous pension to develop a game which is set to take the world of board games by storm.

Called "Floptopoly", and based on the world-famous 'Monopoly' board game, players of Floptoply throw the dice to move around the board collecting liquidated banks and financial institutions, while at the same time selling sub-prime financial products and unrequested credit cards with huge credit limits, both at over-inflated interest rates, to people who can least afford them.

If they land on the "Chancer" or "Dollyparton Chest" square, they chose a random card revealing a host of extra bonus collecting features - examples being making a £35 charge for a 3p overdraft letter or adding further obscene sums of money to their already equally obscene bonuses.

When players pass go, they receive an Experian credit report which is either full of errors or bears absolutely no relation whatsever to whom it's about.

The "Go to Jail" feature is replaced by a special "Go to Lords" square, where players have the opportunity of buying the services of the Peer of their choice to assist them with making even more money.

However, unlike sister Monopoly game, the aim of Flotopoly is to be the first person to lose everything.

They then quit the game and are bailed out by the government to collect an annual pension of £650,000 well before their retirement age.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
