Blizzard and Hasbro has announced their partnership with each other and both companies are proud to distribute Monopoly: World of Warcraft and RISK: StarCraft to consumers.
Monopoly: World of Warcraft
Monopoly: World of Warcraft has custom art by their talented artists and designers featuring signature locations from the realm of Azeroth (Twilight Highlands, Grizzly Hills, and the Swamp of Sorrows). Players will roll dice that are Alliance and Horde themed in a conquest to rule faction capitals of Orgrimmar and Stormwind. Retail price will be $39.95 and will release to consumers in May at “specialty stores across North America.”
We’re holding a poll on Facebook right now where you can vote on which player pieces will make it into the final Monopoly: World of Warcraft board game! Ten options, including Murky, Chen’s Keg, Mechagnome, and a Spellbook are present, and the six most popular pieces will be represented in the game when it launches this May.
(Pieces pictured are casting sculptures and don’t reflect the final product.)
Players will be able to choose from StarCraft’s three playable races: Terran, Protoss, and Zerg as well as choosing from six unique heroes before going into war among enemies. RISK: StarCraft will feature three different styles of play modes and over 290 custom playing pieces. Blizzard portrays real-time strategy of StarCraft into a classic tabletop game flawlessly as players will use strategy and military tactics to win the war. RISK: StarCraft will release in the summer and retail price is going for $49.95 at select specialty stores in North America.
