She might not go directly to jail, but a North Battleford, Sask., woman is in trouble with the law after a heated game of Monopoly.

It happened in the city early Wednesday morning, according to RCMP.

Police were called to a home at 3:44 a.m. CST on a complaint of a domestic incident.

A 43-year-old woman allegedly threw a planter at a man, hitting him in the head. He wasn't seriously injured.

Police said in a news release they had been arguing while playing a board game. The RCMP later confirmed it was Monopoly.

She has been charged with assault with a weapon and breach of probation.

It's believed alcohol was a factor, police said.
