Share This Post

Turn and face the strange Monopoly themes as Dan looks at the new version of the classic game themed around titan of rock music, the Thin White Duke, The Starman, Ziggy Stardust himself: David Bowie.

From the publisher:

Relive the fame and take things over in a special edition of the fast dealing, property trading game that pays homage to the Thin White Duke! MONOPOLY: David Bowie gathers the ultimate collection of the rock superstar’s greatest records for fans to buy, sell, and trade albums such as The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders from Mars.

Build Arenas and Stadiums atop Bowie’s discography with six custom sculpted tokens representing memorable studio albums: Major Tom, Black Star, Black Tie White Noise, Aladdin Sane, Diamond Dogs, and Ashes to Ashes. Sound and Vision cards will take you on the musical journey to be the furthest above the moon with any money to win!
