<i>The Walking Dead</i> Gets Own Monopoly, Risk Editions

Look out, Mr. Monopoly, zombies are looking to take over Boardwalk Avenue.

Hasbro has announced that this fall will see hordes of the undead overrunning their popular games, with the release of Monopoly: The Walking Dead Survival Edition and Risk: The Walking Dead Survival Edition.

In the new Monopoly version, the shoe and ship tokens are replaced with Walking Dead items—such as Dale’s RV and Rick’s sheriff hat—and, as IGN reports, real estate spots like Park Place and Connecticut Avenue have been paved over to make way for the Greene Family farmhouse, Woodbury and the prison cells.

Your objective is still to acquire plots and resources to survive, but instead of using paper money, players trade supplies like food and ammo to gain more property or place a wall or guard tower (hotels and houses are useless in this edition). To hell with “Do Not Pass Go, Do Not Collect $200,” you’ll be lucky if you make around the board.

In Risk: The Walking Dead Survival Edition, players will get a brand new map, courtesy of USAopoly, which plops them in the Southeast region of the U.S. where they battle and scavenge within numerous territories. Gamers will not only have to fend off attacks from the living, but also from the armies of ravenous zombies that randomly spawn at the beginning of each player’s turn. A new deck of “Supply Cards” and “Event Cards” referencing the show are also included.
