Next Time There Won’t Be No Game

If Monopoly was not already the perfect game to make players want to kill each other, the boardgame stalwart has introduced a The Sopranos edition.

The Soprano’s house, The strip bar Bada Bing! and Satriale’s Pork Store are all featured on the new board. Replacing the original game’s top hat and motor car are new tokens including Tony’s boat The Stugots and Bobby Bacala’s toy train engine.

Additional flourishes from the show include the houses being replaced with “stashes”, hotels swapped for contraband, chance cards re-labeled “Ayy!”, and community chest cards “Ohh!”

Let’s hope losers don’t go missing.

That board game is what it is.

Jumping on the train that is revival tv recap podcasts is Talking Sopranos.

Hosting the show is series stars Michael Imperioli and Steve Schirripa. Or as you may better know them, Christopher and Bacala, a couple of henchmen in the crime family series.

The podcast was initially teased in February, but the podcast started releasing episodes in early April.

Apart from the insights of the two stars, the episodes also feature guests from the series as they go through the entire award winning series episode by episode.

The remarkable feature that’s quickly noticed is how much of the presenters’ own mannerisms and style were brought into the series. They speak in the exact same way. It’s as if the characters have stepped out of the tv and started talking about what’s happened.
