Forget about fighting over who gets to be the car; who's going to be the bicycle in this new adaptation of the classic board game Monopoly?! Queen confirmed via social media that a Queen-themed version of Monopoly is on the way, and from the packaging to the player tokens, it looks really cool! Guitarist Brian May confirmed on his website that Queen Monopoly will be out in May (how appropriate), and that, "…It was a blast working on it – like making an album!" The six player tokens are references to various from Queen songs, album covers and music videos and include a person on a bicycle ("Bicycle Race"), a hammer ("Hammer To Fall"), the robot from the cover of News Of The World, a radio ("Radio Ga Ga"), a vacuum cleaner (a nod to the video for "I Want To Break Free) and a guitar that resembles May's "Red Special."   Erica Banas is a rock/classic rock reporter. The first man she ever loved was Jack Daniel.  (True story.)
