A Friends version of Monopoly exists and could we BE any more excited

You can even play as Ross’ dinosaur.

It was one of the most beloved TV sitcoms of all time – and nearly 14 years after airing its last episode, Friends’ popularity is showing no signs of slowing down.

There’s been the annual FriendsFest, which takes place in the UK, and the possible real life version of Central Perk.

Not to mention the fact that all 236 episodes were added to Netflix earlier this year.

But we were particularly excited to hear about the latest ode to the sitcom: a Friends version of Monopoly.

You’ll be able to play the game as either Ross, Rachel, Phoebe, Monica, Joey or Chandler – but only using some tokens designed specifically for the game.

While Monopoly’s T-Rex got re-designed for Ross (which, tbh, makes total sense), the tokens for the other five characters are: a handbag for Rachel; a chef’s hat for Monica; a mini-sweater vest for Chandler; an acoustic guitar for Phoebe and a pizza for  Joey.

Even the spots on the board have gotten a Friends makeover.

The locations have been renamed (and re-imaged) to include some of the key moments over the ten seasons of Friends.

The Works explains:

“As you pivot around the table you will be taken down memory lane of the best memories from Friends.”

The board game is available for €34 (£29.99) from The Works, but we’ve got a (very, very small) bit of bad news.

The company don’t ship to Ireland directly just yet, so if you want to get your hands on a copy of the game, you’ll need to head to AddressPal – or, at least, get someone in the UK to send it to you.
