You Can Now Buy ‘Friends’ Monopoly And Could We Be Any More Excited?


‘Friends’ fans have had it good. Between the recent return of the show to Netflix and the news that the gang is getting back together for the most anticipated reunion since Rachel got off the plane, there’s never been a better time to obsess over the world’s favorite sitcom. 

But, beyond buying an HBO subscription and breathlessly sitting staring at your TV, frustrated Friends fans now have an awesome way to pass the time before the reboot. Anyone who can’t wait to get their fix can now while away the hours with the best boardgame since Joey and Chandler won Monica’s apartment. 

Friends Monopoly is here. Could we be any more excited?

Just as in the traditional game, players must race around the board, exchanging money with the bank and each other to own certain squares and ultimately bankrupt each other as they spin on the remorseless capitalist hamster wheel.

But, where Monopoly might traditionally revolve around property, the Friends version is much less corporate.

Instead of Mayfair, Whitechapel and Regent Street, players can now bid for iconic moments from the show, such as “Monica Gets a Roommate”, “Ross’ Teeth”, “All the Thanksgivings”, and “Phoebe Gets Married”. One of the “Taxes” has also been replaced with a “Central Perk Tab” and players can also trade for sofas and coffee cups from the iconic hangout. 

The fun doesn’t stop with the property. New game pieces include Monica’s chef hat, Ross’s dinosaur, Chandler’s sweater vest, Rachel’s handbag, Phoebe’s guitar, or Joey’s pizza. If the prospect of bouncing around the board as a pewter tyrannosaurus rex doesn’t get you up for a game, nothing will. 

The alternative version of the classic board game is currently available on Amazon for just $24.99, so there’s never been a better time to show the Friends fan in your life how much you care. Trust us – the only thing better is a ready-made moist maker.
