Bravado and Winning Moves will release the new board game, under license from Hasbro, later this month.
Bravado, Universal Music Group’s merchandise and brand management company, has teamed up with Winning Moves to create a new Monopoly game inspired by the rock band Queen.
Produced with the full collaboration of the band and under license from Hasbro, Monopoly: Queen Edition includes six collectible Queen tokens inspired by their career as well as bespoke “houses” and “hotels” designed by the band’s lead guitarist, Brian May. The board game also features gig venues from Queen’s history–spanning the band’s formation in 1970 to the 1986 Wembley and Knebworth shows.
“We are delighted to have partnered with Winning Moves to help bring these historic music and gaming forces together to create Monopoly: Queen Edition,” says David Boyne, managing director, Bravado U.K. “It has been inspiriting to see the band so involved throughout the creative process and Brian and Roger’s input has helped create a truly special and personal version of the iconic game that Queen fans around the world will love.”
Monopoly: Queen Edition will be available online at QueenOnlineStore.com on June 23.
