I’m a hardcore Metallica fan, but even I have to admit that this version of the classic board game is looking pretty ridiculous. There’s not a lot of info on this hard rocking version of Monopoly just yet, but I can only imagine that a game that already incites friends to ruthless violence over neon coloured play money will get that much more serious when you introduce Metallica themed elements into play. Here’s to hoping Kill ‘Em All replaces Community Chest, Ride The Lightning becomes Chance, and when you see the light at the end of your tunnel, it’s just the B&O Railroad coming your way. If you’ve somehow managed to avoid bludgeoning a buddy to death because he won’t help you complete your Pacific Ave. set, you’re a better person than me, but maybe this more manly, amped up version will be just the thing to let your primal, leather-wearing real estate mogul shine through.
The Metallica Collector’s Edition Monopoly board game will be available through the Metallica Store sometime later this week.
