It’s a long way to the bank, if you don’t pass go and collect $200. That’s right folks – somewhat appropriately considering they’re all loaded, Monopoly has produced a version of the game in tribute to AC/DC. According to a post on the band’s official website, the special version of one of the world’s most popular board games is tentatively set for release in August, and it’s going to be a case of trying to make it out without a bullet in your back when you Jailbreak in Monopoly AC/DC style. According to the band, the rules the AC/DC way are thus:
Game Play: Players will buy, sell and trade AC/DC albums and international locations. Players improve their properties with Gold and Platinum Records.
6 Tokens: Cannon (“For Those About To Rock”), Bundle of Dynamite (“T.N.T.”), Bell on Fire (“Hells Bells”), Lightning Bolt (“Thunder Struck”), Angus’s School Boy Hat (“School Days”), Stacks of Cash (“Money Talks”)
Naturally, this is a family friendly Collectors’ edition of the game, so they appear to have left out references to STDs (‘The Jack’) or being knocked out by American thighs (‘You Shook Me All Night Long’), or to former singer Bon Scott’s drinking habits. The game follows in the steps of previous collectors’ editions of Monopoly which have featured Metallica and The Rolling Stones.
