Queen Monopoly game set for release this May

Queen will release their own official version of Monopoly later this spring, Brian May has confirmed.

In an exclamation mark strewn post on his website, Brian enthused: “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 !!!”

Rather than buying houses and hotels, the Queen version of the game will see fans build “staging blocks and full productions” from the ground up while avoiding pitfalls such as “tax, jail and bankruptcy.”

The product description reads: “Tour the amazing gig history of queen, from their very first at imperial college in 1970 to their last with Freddie Mercury at Knebworth Park in 1986.

“Tour the world with the band and buy gig locations and hit singles. Build staging blocks then upgrade to full productions and watch the rent come pouring in.

“Take your chances with a kind of magic and in the lap of the gods cards as you tour the board as one of the iconic queen bespoke tokens. You can own it all!”

Players tokens are the robot from the News of the World album cover, a vacuum cleaner from the ‘I Want to Break Free’ video, Brian May’s guitar, a hammer symbolising ‘Hammer To Fall’, a vintage radio representing ‘Radio Ga Ga’ and a cyclist for ‘Bicycle Race’.

Queen Monopoly is released on 5th May. You can check it out on Amazon here.

Looks cool. They've also made an Elvis monopoly in the past.

Chance: Allow "I'm in love with my car" to be the B side so your drummer will get out of the cupboard.

How many of these sold do you think will actually be opened and played vs sitting on a shelf sealed as a "collector's item"

Jail should have we will not let you go written on it.
The English language had deteriorated into a hybrid of hillbilly, valleygirl, inner-city slang and various grunts. Joe was able to understand them, but when he spoke in an ordinary voice he sounded pompous and faggy to them.
