The game's board features locations from the first five-and-a-half seasons of the TV show about an unlikely drug dealer, including 'DEA Office', 'Strip Club' and 'The Meth Lab.' The traditional Monopoly ‘Chance’ cards are replaced with so-called ‘Bell Cards’, while the usual ‘Community Chest’ cards become ‘Heisenberg Cards.’
Silverman has set up a website (at www.methopoly.com), where fans can download and print the Breaking Bad-themed board and cards. The game, she explains, uses regular Monopoly money and other features, such as houses (call them “crack houses”?), hotels, and playing pieces. The game's creator whimsically suggests that fans could also create their own playing pieces, such a piece of rock candy dyed to imitate a chunk of crystal meth.
Silverman was inspired to create Methopoly after Lostopoly, based on the hit show “Lost,” became an online sensation in 2008. As Silverman explains on the Methopoly website:
When season five of Breaking Bad began, I knew I would design my own board and call it Methopoly. I wanted to learn Photoshop and knew this would be the perfect project.
In the opinion of this "Breaking Bad" fan, she's done an estimable job.
