A classic board game has received a golden makeover to the tune of 150 million yen ($1.38 million).

Tokyo-based Tanaka Kikinzoku Kogyo KK, a precious metals trader and manufacturer, joined forces with toymaker Tomy Co. to produce a golden Game of Life using no less than 12.4 kilograms of the pure metal.

The specialty product, which is not for sale, will be put on display around the country.

The set includes a golden board, 50 centimeters by 60 cm and 2 millimeters thick, gold-leaf banknotes, and play pieces made of various precious metals.

Pieces representing family members that sit in the cars are made of silver.

About 4.5 kg of platinum was used to coat the edges of the spinner and other parts of the board.

The concept of the game, which the two companies spent about four months to produce, is “Life shines with gold.”
