Publisher Blizzard is partnering with Hasbro's USAopoly to release World of Warcraft Monopoly and StarCraft Risk, it said today. So now you can take breaks from your World of Warcraft and StarCraft sessions to play World of Warcraft and StarCraft.


The new version of Monopoly will feature cities and zones from the popular fantasy MMORPG, including Stormwind, Orgrimmar and the Twilight Highlands. Fans can vote on the game's Facebook page for which tokens they want to see in the final product.

StarCraft Risk boasts all three races from the sci-fi RTS (Zerg, Terran, and Protoss) and what Blizzard calls "astute deployment of military might and strategic field tactics." Blizzard says it will have three separate "play modes," so this might be a little different than actual Risk. My prediction: People will still complain that Zerg is underpowered.


WoW Monopoly? Really? People will buy anything.

You'd be better off spending your cash on something like this from Fantasy Flight Games.
