Metallica-themed Monopoly Game Hits Shelves June 17th
Metallica are truly a mainstay in American culture. You have to be to get a special edition Monopoly game made after you, which is exactly what Metallica have done. The Metallica Collectors Edition Monopoly game comes out tomorrow, June 17th, so you better throw up a rock fist when you pass “Go”.
The game, instead of having “Boardwalk” and the railroads, has players journey through festival shows, childhood homes of band members, historic Metallica events, and more on their way to creating their real estate empire (or being rocked off stage by a well-placed hotel).
The game pieces are also Metallica-themed, of course. Fans can pick from the hammer from Kill ‘Em All, the scales from …And Justice For All, the snake from Black Album and others. Instead of the customary “Chance” and “Community Chest,” players will land on “Binge and Purge” and “Jump in the Fire” spaces to take their chances with… well, chance.
Pick it up tomorrow from Metallica’s online store.
