Gimme fuel, gimme fire, gimme me.....$200 to pass Go?

Metallica have teamed up with Monopoly for the second time, this time bringing fans an all-new, second edition of the classic board game.

Titled Monopoly: Metallica World Tour Edition, the game celebrates the band's life on the road, including their record-breaking 2013 where they became the first and only band to play on all seven continents.

More details of the World Tour Edition can be found on the Metallica website:

Metallica and Monopoly have collaborated once again to bring you an all new, second edition of this American classic! This time we’re celebrating life on the road, including the World Record breaking, Whiplash-filled year of 2013 when Metallica became the first and only band to ever perform on all seven continents. Tour around the globe with your collectable token to some of the band’s favorite cities in North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Australia, and Africa. You’ll even find yourself Trapped Under Ice in Antarctica! 

Purchase property with your Metalli-bucks, acquire all the cities on one continent, and add arenas and stadiums to increase your value. Land on one of the “Carpe Diem” or “Shortest Straw” spaces and be rewarded with sticks, picks, and snake pit passes, or fined with parking and stage repair fees. Travel the world, Metallica-style, while building your real estate empire!

Player tokens include: Lady Justice, Death Magnetic coffin, Ride the Lightning electric chair, Master of Puppets Cross, Metal Up Your Ass toilet, and the Scary Guy.

If this sounds like a bit of you, or a potential Christmas present for the missus, you can order it online from the Metallica website for $39.99 (US).
