Mass Effect, Pac-Man, Skylanders Go From TV to Table Top
USAopoly has announced plans to bring popular gaming franchises like Mass Effect and Skylanders to the world of board games.
During New York Toy Fair 2013, the manufacturer of such boardgame mainstays as Nintendo Monopoly and Super Mario Yahtzee revealed it was going to release fully-licensed board games for franchises like Pac-Man, Mass Effect, Dungeons and Dragons, and Skylanders.
Mass Effect and Plants vs. Zombies will be getting the Risk treatment, with both iterations due out this fall for $49.99. Jenga will be getting a special Space Invaders edition this summer for $24.95, while Yahtzee: Pac-Man (summer), and Trivial Pursuit: World of Warcraft (fall), will be available for $29.95.
Rounding out the new titles will be Monopoly: Skylanders, available in the summer for $39.95, and the spring arrival, Clue: Dungeons and Dragons, also for $39.95. There are no details on whether or not these new games will have any variations from the base rules, but die hard fans should be happy to see there will soon be more ways to play their favorite video games.
