A new Guinness record has been set for the world’s largest Monopoly board in the Netherlands, where students put together an enormous 900 square metre replica of the iconic board game – complete with a massive dice and to-scale houses.

Students and staff of the Studentenvereniging Ceres (student association) in the Netherlands made the massive board game out of 804 individual panels attached together.
