Research has found that about 500,000 Monopoly sets are sold in the UK every year. They each contain £15,140. That is a total of £7.57 billion of untaxed income. A one-off 20% windfall tax would yield the Exchequer some £1.514 billion to pay for additional government spending at this time of global economic difficulties for the UK. Just remember the last time you played Monopoly - did the banker need all the money? Remember, paper money is all about trust. So long as you trust a seller to accept it you will accept it yourself.
