At last, a Monopoly board that reflects the real price of London property — although you’ll have to be Roman Abramovich-rich to afford it.

Not made of gold then The 7,963 Monopoly board
The traditional dog, iron and top-hat pieces are replaced by a super-yacht, private jet, Rolls-Royce, tropical island and crown, all handmade in sterling silver for the oligarchs to argue over.
