Oh wow! An official Beatles Monopoly set! Not a Monopoly knock-off. It looks cool. I want it!

I plan on getting two.
I'll display it next to my 'Flip Your Wig' Game.

I have the 1964 Flip Your Wig game. It was featured in the 2005 Beatles Exhibit at my library's main branch. I displayed my Beatles collection there.

I want Beatleopoly! I have Beatlemania, the Beatle version of Trivial Pursuit. Nobody will play it with me, though. They think I have an unfair advantage.

You do? Oh man. I would love to have that! The only place I've ever seen it is on Ebay, and it always becomes way too expensive for me.

I don't like Monopoly much, but I'd definitely play a Beatles version! This will be so cool.

There's a Beatles Trivial Pursuit? I'd love to have that. Monopoly sucks.

Beatlemania is similar to Trivial Pursuit, but not as many questions, I don't believe. My sister once owned a version. I'll have to check with her to see if she still does.

I think I might ask my husband if he'd like to give me the new Monopoly game for my birthday!

Beatle Mania is fun and I still have mine in ship shape condition. I've rarely gotten anybody to play it with me because most people I know think I have a very unfair advantage. Something to do with being a big Beatles fan or something.

Still, I have the 1960s Monopoly that I got for Christmas 1999 and one card requests players to "sing a Beatle song." Cool about Beatleopoly! I want that game!

Monopoly is a boring game, no matter what gimmick they tie to it.

That is true. I never liked it. I just want it for collector's sake.

Well I happen to like Monopoly a lot. It's really the kind of game where you can make up your own rules. I know I do and everyone I've played it with seems to have a different way to play. So it will add to my collection of Monopolies, since I already have 4 other versions. Yeah, I'm a bit of a Monopoly geek too.

I have Dogopoly. It has a picture of a boston terrier in the middle of the board so I had to have it.

And I cannot wait for my Beatleopoly.

I was a very competitive child and my forte was *always* beating adults at Monopoly!

We have a 60s version of it that belongs to my Dad, but nothing quite as exciting as singing Beatles songs. It's actually the same as the recent versions....

I HAVE to have The Beatles version. Friends who come to stay - you have been warned!

I know in my Cleveland version of Monopoly one of the cards says "Go to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Sing chorus of a Beatles song or else lose a turn" or something like that.

I like the idea of a Beatles game, but I don't think that it could make me begin to like Monopoly.

BG and I were wondering if the money was in English pounds. I think we're gonna buy one of these pretty soon. The Beatles trivial pursuit is one that I never knew was out. Gotta check that out. When did you get that, BB?

I placed my order from the Fest website today.

Oh, and I STILL have my 1984 Beatle Mania game - it's the Beatles version of Trivial Pursuit. I just love it.

Problem is finding people willing to play it with me. Something to do with their thinking I have an unfair advantage.

That's the problem with narrowly themed games, my husband and I own Star Wars Trivial Pursuit and we usually play one another cause no one else will join us.
