Monopoly and Risk getting a face lift
Usaopoly has created a partnership with Blizzard to bring us Monopoly: World of Warcraft and Risk: Starcraft. Each variation will bring you everything you love about the original and put a twist on it.
Monopoly: WoW will have you racing to buy locations such as Grizzly Hills and Twilight Highlands and Swamp of Sorrows in place of the traditional Boardwalk Ave, Baltic Ave, Marvin Gardens etc. Instead of houses and hotels you will put custom made houses and hotels to represent Warcraft towns and cities and the dice will be colored red and blue to represent the hoard and alliance.
Risk: Starcraft will have players choosing sides as the Protoss, Zerg or Terran and six unique heroes will be available. The premise is the same but with the Starcraft universe being at the center of the conflict. It will bring 3 modes of game play and have over 290 custom playing pieces that reflect the Starcraft universe we know and love.
Monopoly: WoW will release in May for $39.95 and Risk: Starcraft is slated for a summer 2012 release for $49.95.
