In our minds, Monopoly ranks up there with Clue, Candy Land, Scrabble and Risk as one of the greatest board games of all time. As much as we love the game, rounding the board as the race car, dog, boat, hat or dinosaur as we go through all the usual motions isn’t amusing for more than a few hours. Enter David Bowie Monopoly. It doesn’t extend gameplay or make it any more confusing like Monopoly’s Longest Game Ever Edition, but it does replace everything from the pieces and the properties with Bowie-specific versions that make the game more fun to play. What should have been called “The Thin White Duke Edition” of the game includes six different special edition pieces (star, skull, Pierrot hat, rolled up tie, space helmet, and lightning bolt), custom Bowie paper money and real estate spaces that eschew traditional properties like Boardwalk and Park Place for albums from Bowie’s impressive catalog. David Bowie Monopoly can be purchased now from Amazon for around a hundred bucks which is far more than any Monopoly variant should cost yet still significantly less than the Bowie version should be priced at because it’s Bowie.
