This is a project I had been thinking about doing for awhile and finally decided to make it for my boyfriend for Christmas.

METALOPOLY

I went out and bought a monopoly game, primer, labels, and card stock. This was the result after plenty of hours at work. The logo on the box was designed in photoshop and then free-handed on the box which was then painted black and varnished several times for the glossy look.
The pieces are replaced with a clock (dethklok), a bat, a skull, a 1" spike, and I kept the horse (thunderhorse) and the money bag from the original game.

Better view of the board


Instead of Community Chest, there is the Band Fund. Cards say things like, "Van broke down, pay $200", or "Happy dethday, birthdayface. Pay dr Rockso"
The chance cards still exist and say things like "Tour bus left without you, take a walk on the boardwalk."

The title deed cards were a hassle. Sorry I don't have a better picture but I cut out tiny pieces of labels and covered over the words "houses" and "hotels." In Metalopoly, instead of renting, buying, and selling houses or hotels, you Rent, Book, and Play Bars and Arenas.




We've been together about a year and a half, and he's always been a fan of metalocalypse. I don't even know if he likes the game monopoly, but I think this will be cool to have around.

I have to tell you, as a superhuge fan of Metalocalypse, this is AWESOME.  My husband and I would play it... all the time.  Do you still have the files for the cards and properties?  If so, would you be willing to share?

This is one of the greatest projects that I have ever seen. I love to see someone use their creativity and a theme and take it all the way. I hope that he loves it.
