David Bowie-Themed Monopoly Is the Blackstar of Board Games
Ground control to major Bowie fans: Park Place and Boardwalk are officially obsolete. You need a version of Monopoly that lets you advance to Diamond Dogs, Aladdin Sane, and The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. If you spend most of your Saturday nights grooving to "Let's Dance" and shouting out the lyrics to "Suffragette City," then David Bowie Monopoly ($70) may be just what you need to spice up board game night.
You can snap up the officially licensed David Bowie-branded Monopoly right now, which lets you jump into a world where only the Thin White Duke's discography and world of talents matter. Forget hanging around railroads and buying out utilities—claim one of Bowie's iconic tours instead. And rather than flipping through Community Chest and Chance cards, pull Sound and Vision cards to determine your fate as you zip around this Bowie wonderland with bold, bright colors and an assortment of iconic imagery.
Get started by selecting your favorite Bowie token, such as a lightning bolt, star, and skull. Then earn Bowie money to purchase session musicians, albums and songs, and even stadiums.
You can pick the game up on Amazon right now, though you may want to act fast. It seems hardcore Bowie believers tear into stock on the regular. For $70, you can't blame them, though. It's a great way to remember one of the greatest musicians of all time, and an even cooler way to challenge your friends and family to see who's the greater property tycoon.
Simply put, David Bowie Monopoly will have fans freaking out in a moonage daydream.
