As for the bicycle token, I think this one was also a promo item. Probably my favorite. :cool:

So, amidst all the real, valuable, music-related releases that would have been so warmly welcomed, (Earl's Court, Houston, Hammy '79...), along with Queen Vodka and I am sure that Queen Scrabble is on the drawing board (of course "Freddie would have loved it!") we welcome Queen Monopoly. Shame, shame, shame. Deaky had the right idea to retire gracefully. What a complete waste of time, energy and money. I cry, I cry for you....

Surely, John's signiture was required as well?
I haven't tried Queen vodka yet but Queen Lager (the best Bohemian beer) with a special "Bohemian Rhapsody" anniversary glass was a truly appreciated Christmas present about a couple of years ago....I think "Freddie would have loved it" ;)

As someone already pointed out, this would have been driven by Hasbro, not QPL. In any event, it wouldn't interfere with any musical product.

As for the vodka, it's the best I've tasted. I normally drink Absolut or standard Stoli and it's far better than either.

A couple of weeks ago I was looking at this photo:

...and I was wondering why there wasn't a Queen Monopoly. It's almost as if I knew.

I like it. But I probably wouldn't buy it, I dunno...

Well, some have suggested this probably did not have much to do with Queen, more Hasbro; but Brian has just stated that he spent a year secretly working on this.

So a year working on a board game and QPL wonder why fans get a little pissed with lack of any credible releases.

Game looks smart, but it would have been nice to hear they had secretly been working for a year on a proper release.

All the stuff (video and audio) was catalogued years ago by Greg. I would imagine that there have been many in house pitches for products. Remember, Queen Forever was teased (on this message board!) almost a decade before the actual release. They have the products, it's all a matter of deciding on a schedule. And that's a waiting game.

I've moved on to other things.
