Popular comedy series, "Friends" is set to be back for a reunion in May, but fans of the show can count down to the D-day with a monopoly game themed after the series, which is now available on Amazon. 

Fans of NBC sitcom, "Friends" can't wait for May to arrive after it was confirmed that their favorite television comedy series would be making a return.

There was much talk of a "Friends Reunion," and it is now a reality, as HBO would stream all the ten seasons of the show, while all the six main characters would return for an untitled and unscripted special.

News of the reunion, coming sixteen years after the show's last episode in 2004, sent many fans into a frenzy, and while they wait for the first episode, they could do so by chilling with a "Friends" themed monopoly game. 

The exclusive game, previously only available in the United Kingdom, is now selling on Amazon and is getting a flurry of buyers, too, as it has risen to the top of the best-selling Toys and Games category. 


The monopoly game features a trivia of the famous sitcom and also has six tokens, representing the show's six main characters. 

Ross is represented by a dinosaur token, while a pizza represents Joey. Chandler is represented by a combination of a sweater and a vest; Monica by a chef's hat, Rachel by a handbag, and Phoebe, by a guitar. 

The Monopoly game has a high rating among shoppers on Amazon, as it is rated at 4.9 stars, and described as a must-have game for "Friends" fans

The money used in the game also has markings from the series, such as a turkey with sunglasses, which was key in making Chandler declare that he loved Monica.

There is also the taxi owned by Phoebe's grandmother, as well as the chance to own some of the renowned properties on the show, such as the 19 and 20 apartments, Joey's boat, and the giant poking device.

The Monopoly game has a high rating among shoppers on Amazon, as it is rated at 4.9 stars, and described as a must-have game for "Friends" fans. It is sold for $24.99. 

Before moving to HBO Max, "Friends" was streaming on Netflix, but an announcement by Warner Media stated that its new streaming platform would now offer all the 236 episodes of the comedy series. 

Apart from "Friends," HBO Max would also be streaming "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," as well as the suspense-filled series, "Pretty Little Liars." 

These developments call for exciting times ahead for fans of the streaming world, and if one is a fan of "Friends," there could be nothing more relaxing than a game of "Friends" Monopoly with friends.
