Here’s a description of the game:
“Metallica and Monopoly have collaborated once again to bring you an all new, second edition of this American classic!

Tour around the globe with your collectable token to some of the band’s favorite cities in North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Australia, and Africa. You’ll even find yourself Trapped Under Ice in Antarctica!
Purchase property with your Metalli-bucks, acquire all the cities on one continent, and add arenas and stadiums to increase your value. Land on one of the “Carpe Diem” or “Shortest Straw” spaces and be rewarded with sticks, picks, and snake pit passes, or fined with parking and stage repair fees. Travel the world, Metallica-style, while building your real estate empire!

“We’ve had a lot of fun making this — it’s an entirely new approach, an entirely new concept, and a way to absorb the video game platform that I believe you guys are going to enjoy. There are a lot of incredible other musicians who’ve been involved in the casting, the creation, the scoring, and the performance within this video game and I would just want to say thank you to all of them who’ve been involved, and thank you to everyone who has created ‘Of Bird And Cage‘ for having me on board.”
