Is there life on Mars? Probably not, but there might be a few never-ending games of Monopoly.
Calling all David Bowie fans, turn and face the strange changes of board game culture. There’s now a David Bowie-themed Monopoly board made specially for all you fans of Ziggy Stardust and the Thin White Duke.
Instead of buying up railroads, hotels, and other major plots of property, Bowie mega-fans can now lay claim to the British powerhouse’s impressive discography and many talents. Cards divided into “Sound” and “Vision” dictate your fate as you teleport through the many-varied, ultra-bright Bowieverse.
The more Bowie bucks you get, the more music, records, albums, and even stadiums you can have at your disposal.
For their player token, Bowie lovers can choose between a lightning bolt, a star, a skull, and other iconic Bowie imagery. From Blackstar to Diamond Dogs, this board game has it all.
It’s sure to satisfy any Bowie itch that hasn’t been scratched in a long, long time. This is the holy mecca of all Bowie-dom, neatly compacted into what is possibly the most frustrating game in the world.
Still, jamming out to some iconic tunes by everyone’s favorite Martian might help pass the on-off 48 game with little bit more life and pizazz.
Then again, if fans want to hop on this Bowie train, they’ll have to act fast and with confidence.
Currently, the game is available on Amazon for a whopping $70. That might seem like a lot of money for a board game… and it totally is! However, it’s clear that the most die-hard Bowie fans are willing to drop hot dollars for any memorabilia.
So, what do you think of this Bowie-inspired Monopoly board? Is it out of this world? Is it a thankless scam?
