Coming in May is an official Queen version of Monopoly. Like the recent Beatles version, the Queen game will feature the group’s history within the playing rules “from their very first (show) at Imperial College in 1970 to their last with Freddie Mercury at Knebworth Park in 1986.” The new Queen rules include “buying gig locations and hit singles.” Ultimate Classic Rock reported, “original game pieces are replaced with iconic items from the band’s history, including the robot from the News Of The World album cover, a bicycle from ‘Bicycle Race,’ a vacuum cleaner from the ‘I Want To Break Free’ video, a hammer for ‘Hammer To Fall’ and, of course, Brian May’s guitar.”
