The Op Games, board game and puzzle publisher behind licensed games and best-selling party games, Telestrations, Blank Slate and Hues and Cues, has launched a revamped version of a classic board game to commemorate the most influential band of all time with MONOPOLY: The Beatles Edition. Under license by leading toy and game company, Hasbro, the new game brings one of the world’s largest pioneers of the music industry back to the tabletop to celebrate 60 years since the band first landed in the U.S. The deal was brokered by Bravado International, The Beatles’ North American licensing agent.

With psychedelic twists on classic MONOPOLY components, fans can relive the band’s revolutionary past as they buy, sell and trade a decade’s worth of music and moments that defined an era. Collect iconic albums that set the ‘60s on fire – from “A Hard Day’s Night” and “Revolver” to “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” and “Yellow Submarine” – while enjoying the customized artwork that represents historical band moments, including their first concert in the U.S. and their sold-out show at the Hollywood Bowl. MONOPOLY’s iconic Community Chest and Chance Cards have also been transformed into “Beatlemania” and “The Fab Four” cards respectively, testing players on how well they know the music that transcended generations.

“The Beatles are a household name, well-known by fans of all ages, even six decades later,” says Dane Chapin, chief executive officer, The Op Games. “Being able to merge the most influential band of all time with one of the world’s favorite family games in the new edition of MONOPOLY: The Beatles is such a privilege and aligns perfectly with our goal at The Op Games to create games that can span generations and bring fun for the whole family.”

Created for two to six players, ages eight and up, MONOPOLY: The Beatles Edition features six custom collectible tokens representing timeless Beatles hits, including “Here Comes the Sun,” “Rocky Racoon,” “Strawberry Fields Forever” and “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer.” Listening Parties take the place of the game’s traditional Houses, with Concerts as the classic Hotels, all paid for with the game’s custom Beatles money.

“We’re excited to be able to partner with The Op Games to bring The Beatles MONOPOLY game to the marketplace and into the hands of both new and old fans,” says Joe Marziotto, vice president, licensing, Bravado.

MONOPOLY: The Beatles Edition is available on The Op Games’ website.
