Default Do Not Pass Go. Do Not Collect 200g

At this year's annual Toy Fair in NYC, Blizzard is set to unveal two new Blizzard-themed board games. The first being "Monopoly: World of Warcraft":



Locations will be represented by familiar WarCraft locals, and I'm sure there will be plenty of interesting themed Chance and "Treasure" Chest cards as well. Blizzard is currently holding a contest on their Facebook page to vote for which six of the ten possible pieces will be used for the final version. The game will be in stores this May for $39.95.

The other reveal is "RISK: StarCraft":


Not as many details here, other than the fact that all three factions are playable along with six heroes (and hopefully with little plastic marines, zealots and zerglings) :) The game will come out sometime this summer for $49.45.

FUCK YES.


Risk is the king of all board games. You may praise Chess for its timeless simplicity and strategy, and I will not fault you for it. But when I want to have a good time, I always turn to Risk.

And Starcraft is a fucking awesome setting for a game about conquest and war.

InB4 someone points out that lore in the Monopoly game will be considered non-canon.

I can't even remember the last time I played a board game.


Guess that'll change.

I'm waiting until the 1.2 patch when they finally nerf Park Place, and reduce the hotel debuff by 33%.

I kinda wish they'd made Warcraft Risk instead. I bet Outland would be the new Australia, since you could only get in by invading Hellfire Peninsula via The Blasted Lands.
