Forget about fighting over who gets to be the car; who’s going to be the bicycle in this new adaptation of the classic board game Monopoly?!
Queen confirmed via social media that a Queen-themed version of Monopoly is on the way, and from the packaging to the player tokens, it looks really cool!
"YES ! It's true !!! We've been very secretly developing Queen Monopoly for over a year. And it's due in a shop near you in May. I'm excited - it was a blast working on it - like making an album ! We hope you love it ! Choose your weapons !!!"
Guitarist Brian May confirmed on his website that Queen Monopoly will be out in May (how appropriate), and that, “…It was a blast working on it – like making an album!”
The six player tokens are references to various from Queen songs, album covers and music videos and include a person on a bicycle (“Bicycle Race”), a hammer (“Hammer To Fall”), the robot from the cover of News Of The World, a radio (“Radio Ga Ga”), a vacuum cleaner (a nod to the video for “I Want To Break Free) and a guitar that resembles May’s “Red Special.”
