Get Ready To Rock Properties With An Iron Maiden Version of Monopoly
Iron Maiden has lent their name to another game this year as we're getting Eddie and the gang on an all-new version of Monopoly.
The Op has probably one of the more metal board games coming out this year, as they have announced an Iron Maiden version of Monopoly. Simply called Monopoly: Iron Maiden Edition, the game will pay homage to the band's history in several different ways as you'll make your way around the board as if you're on tour. Complete with several different versions of their iconic mascot, Eddie, greeting you almost everywhere you go as their version of Rich Uncle Pennybags. We got more info and a few quotes from the company below, as it is now on sale for $45.

"We're delighted to have been given the opportunity to have Monopoly get the full Eddie treatment," said Rod Smallwood, Manager of Iron Maiden. "In true Maiden fashion, we commissioned our main tour artist, Akirant, to grace the board and the box lid with some of our most loved Eddies on tour. The game is full of our humor (who else would ransom Nicko's pal Sooty?), even the player pieces reflect our unique history (yeah, the impaled albatross!) and the weird and wonderful world we share with our fans, and they have come to expect from us!"
"We're excited to add another prolific license to our line with the launch of Monopoly: Iron Maiden Edition and provide fans with a new collectible that merges one of the greatest heavy metal bands of all time with Hasbro's timeless Fast-Dealing Property Trading Game," said Dane Chapin, CEO of The Op. "The Iron Maiden fandom shares a universal sense of camaraderie, and we love that we can provide them with an engaging game that highlights so many of the band's legendary shows and immaculate album art."
