Forget about fighting over who gets to be the car; who's going to be the bicycle in this new adaptation of the classic board game Monopoly?! Queen confirmed via social media that a Queen-themed version of Monopoly is on the way, and from the packaging to the player tokens, it looks really cool! https://www.facebook.com/Queen/photos/a.141525617361.111618.17337462361/10154483268627362/?type=3&theater Guitarist Brian May confirmed on his website that Queen Monopoly will be out in May (how appropriate), and that, "…It was a blast working on it – like making an album!" The six player tokens are references to various from Queen songs, album covers and music videos and include a person on a bicycle ("Bicycle Race"), a hammer ("Hammer To Fall"), the robot from the cover of News Of The World, a radio ("Radio Ga Ga"), a vacuum cleaner (a nod to the video for "I Want To Break Free) and a guitar that resembles May's "Red Special."   Erica Banas is a rock/classic rock reporter. The first man she ever loved was Jack Daniel.  (True story.)
