Parker Brothers is Ready with a Queen-Themed Version of Monopoly. Yes, the Band.

Blabbermouth reports on a secret Parker Brothers project (“We’ve been very secretly developing Queen Monopoly for over a year,” says guitarist Brian May) which will finally see the light of day in May. Here’s the official description of the game:

Tour the amazing gig history of QUEEN, from their very first at Imperial College in 1970 to their last with Freddie Mercury at Knebworth Park in 1986. Tour the world with the band and buy gig locations and hit singles. Build staging blocks then upgrade to full productions and watch the rent come pouring in. Take your chances with A Kind of Magic and In the Lap of the Gods cards as you tour the board as one of the iconic QUEEN bespoke tokens. You can own it all!

No thimbles or wheelbarrows here. Tokens include a bicycle featuring (presumably) a fat-bottomed girl and a guitar. Players will seek to make fortunes, dodge taxes and avoid bankruptcy.
