CARLSBAD, Calif., June 15 (UPI) -- Hollywood's Paramount Pictures says a new edition of the board game Monopoly based on its film classic "The Godfather" is now available.

Produced by USAOPOLY, under license from Hasbro and Paramount Licensing, the game was created to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the iconic gangster picture.

"Reminisce and relive 'The Godfather' story anew as you play America's favorite game with a killer instinct the Don would respect," a news release said.

"Expand your family's interests by amassing property and influence as you seek to bankrupt those around you. Buy, sell and trade the likes of Woltz International Pictures, Moe Green's Casino, Joe's Diner and Hyman Roth's Home as you muscle your way to an empire. Make them an offer they can't refuse as you vie for the Corleone Long Island Home and Corleone Lake Tahoe Estate (the prime properties traditionally occupied by Boardwalk and Park Place.) Travel the board with one of six game tokens: the horse head, cannoli, Genco Olive Oil tin, the Don's limo, a dead fish or the tommy gun."
