The Rolling Stones have announced their version of the classic board game Monopoly. In Rolling Stones Monopoly, the famous streets and avenues of the original edition are replaced with Stones releases. Baltic Avenue becomes Sticky Fingers and Park Place turns into A Bigger Bang.
The Stones have put their stamp on the new edition with street names like Mayfair, Park Lane and Old Kent Road. Houses and hotels have been replaced by gold and platinum records, while the traditional Community Chest cards will feature guitar licks and lyrics.
The four railroads are now different Stones tours and instead of paying a Luxury Tax, players will now have to purchase concert tickets. There are no houses or hotels, but gold and platinum records to add to your properties. Plus, while you play the game, you won’t be guiding a racecar or a thimble around the board, but a tour bus, a drum set or a bunch of wild horses.
Monopoly: The Rolling Stones Collector’s Edition will be available in stores in time for the holiday season. But it’s not the first Rock & Roll version of the game. A Beatles edition was released in 2008.
