The Beatles have a monopoly!!!
Monopoly has become Beatopoly. There is now a Beatles Monology game.
Donít expect to get rich on a few rounds of this game though. You donít need money. All you need is love.
As you go around the board you are rewarded with love, not money. From the love you make, you can purchase Beatles albums instead of real estate.
The albums start out from earliest and increase in Love value as you go around the board.
You get the most love for Apple Studios (Boardwalk/Mayfair) and Apple Studios (Park Place/Park Lane).
Instead of income tax, there is the taxman. Chance is renamed Fab Four. Railoads are concert tickets, The Electric Company and Waterworks is Shea Stadium and Candlestick Park and the pewter tokens are Walrus, Sun, Raccoon, Octopus, Hammer and Strawberry. :roll:
