Last week, the world briefly stopped spinning when news broke about the Friends reunion special. Just to think, we were already ecstatic over the new Central Perk-themed coffee shop that opened in Wisconsin, and then we hear that our six faves are coming back to TV.

But of course, good things take time, and the unscripted reunion special (as it's not a reboot or continuation) isn't slated to drop on HBO's new upcoming service, HBO Max, until May.
但是,當然,好事多磨,這個無劇本的重聚特輯(既不是重拍也不是續集)預計5月份才會在 HBO即將推出的新服務HBO Max上播出。

How will we pass the time? It's just so far away. Well here's a suggestion: Play a nice everlasting game of Monopoly, duh! Better yet, there's now a special Friends-themed Monopoly game available exclusively on Amazon, and we're ready to clear the coffee table (and our schedules) and get down to business.

While the game was released in 2018, it was only available in the UK at the time. Now the US version is here, and yes, you can have it by tomorrow because it's on Amazon Prime.

The Monopoly Friends Edition differs from the original Monopoly as players aren't buying/selling only properties per se, but rather shelling out money for iconic moments from the series.

For example, if a player lands on the 'Monica Gets a Roommate' square, he or she can choose to buy the moment or not. Other squares to buy include: Ross’ Teeth, All the Thanksgivings, and Phoebe Gets Married. Just like how the classic game board features squares like "Income Tax," players of the Friends version will also be subject to pay extra fees too, if their pawn lands on the 'Central Perk Tab.' Players can also invest and/or trade Central Perk sofas and coffee mugs.
例如,如果一個玩家走到“莫妮卡的新室友”的格子,他/她能選擇是否要買下這個時刻。其他可以買的格子還有:“羅斯洗牙”、“感恩節大懷舊”和“菲比結婚”。和這款經典游戲有“個人所得稅”這樣的特殊格子一樣,《老友記》 版的玩家的棋子落到了“中央公園”這一格的話也需要交額外的費用。玩家也能投資和/或交易“中央公園”沙發和咖啡杯。
