We all know the legendary musician that is the late and great David Bowie. He could bring a wonderful burst of glamour and eccentricity to anything that he was involved in, but this doesn’t stop with his iconic music. Bowie now has his very own edition of Monopoly, joining the likes of Queen, Elvis and The Beatles who also have their own versions of the well-known board game that has been breaking up friendships and destroying families for decades.
In Bowie’s version of the game, the player tours the superstars various albums- such as Reality and Black Star– and the player tokens such as the top hat, the car and the dog are replaced with Bowie themed items like a lightning bolt, a star and a skull. Check out the description of the Bowie Monopoly from the David Bowie News website below, which I really wanted to include because I absolutely love the ridiculous amount of David Bowie song puns. This is the kind of content I want in my life.
