Break out your 2013 Christmas list and put this toward the top — The Walking Dead is getting its own versions of Monopoly and Risk.
According to Comic Book Resources, both games are available for pre-order and slated for a September 2013 release, with the Monopoly version selling for $39.99 and Risk going for $49.99.
In Monopoly: The Walking Dead Survival Edition, the press release states, "players vie for, and then must fortify, the prime real estate and resources that will sustain their lives. There's only one victor that will outlast the others — whether living or undead — when all is said and done. This completely customized game features six collectible tokens, optional speed play and a fight to the finish!"
Sounds pretty sweet, but what's the Boardwalk equivalent in The Walking Dead universe? Hershel's farm? Rick's cell in the prison? The Governor's pad in Woodbury? What do we get to play with instead of the iron or the car — Daryl's ear necklace, Michonne's katana?
Here are some details on Risk: The Walking Dead Survival Edition: "USAopoly will debut a brand new map set in the southeast region of the United States where players battle and scavenge for their very lives. Contending for survival at every turn, gamers must not only fend off attacks from the living who compete for precious, limited resources upon which their survival depends, but they also must maintain their self-preservation from the unrelenting hordes of the undead that would feast upon them. A new deck of 'Supply Cards' will add strategy, fun and flavor to this classic tabletop game."
