Do Not Pass Mick.... Go Directly To Altamont
The venerable board game Monopoly has introduced a special edition based on The Rolling Stones. Instead of playing with the traditional thimble or shoe, the band's lips logo and a posse of wild horses will move along the board. Some addresses have been replaced by album names. Instead of houses and hotels, there are gold and platinum records. No more water works or electric company -- drums and guitars take their place. And the train stations have been renamed for some of the Stones' most famous tours.
