World of Warcraft Monopoly now on major sale

World of Warcraft Monopoly now on major sale
Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hannukah, Winter Veil, or something else, you're probably looking to give that special someone something around this time of year. Amazon.com has just unveiled a major sale (65% off!) on the World of Warcraft Monopoly board game, dropping the price down to a cool $14 for U.S. customers. If you want some more info, we previously covered the currency (gold! Pass Go, collect 200g!) and the spaces on the board. Our parent site Joystiq also has a full set of unboxing pics.

Buy and sell Azerothian real estate in World of Warcraft Monopoly

We've featured the World of Warcraft Monopoly game before, along with the heroes depicted on their currency. Some more concrete (or steel, depending on your faction) info has come our way from Kotaku. As you might have expected, Orgrimmar and Stormwind are the Boardwalk and Park Place analogues. Apparently, goblin financing terms are steep; of course, that whole Deathwing thing might have depressed Stormwind real estate values a tad.

Additionally, the traditional houses and hotels are replaced by taverns and towers. Personally, if I'm playing, I'll take the four taverns over the tower any day. Call it a "morale bonus."

World of Warcraft Monopoly is due to release later this spring.

Breakfast Topic: What pieces would you like to see included in World of Warcraft Monopoly?

Blizzard recently unveiled an officially-licensed World of Warcraft Monopoly game to the public at Toy Fair 2012 in New York City. We don't know all the details, but we do know that Blizzard wants us all to vote on what playing tokens we want included in the game.

Granted, Blizzard's giving us a lot of cool choices, from a metallic murloc to a pewter clockwork gnome. But it feels like we need more options. Where are all the boomkin corpses? And why can't I play as Garrosh? I really want to play as Garrosh.

What do you think about the World of Warcraft Monopoly game? Are there any playing pieces you wish were included but aren't? And of the game pieces that Blizzard wants you to consider for inclusion in WoW Monopoly, which is your favorite?

Official Monopoly: World of Warcraft game to be unveiled next week

Anyone familiar with board games could tell you that there are about 100,000 different versions of Monopoly out there. There's an officially licensed The Wizard of Oz Monopoly. There's a Powerpuff Girls Monopoly. And a Looney Tunes Monopoly. Even the lousy IP-cash-in movie effort Cars 2 has its own version of Monopoly. So it would only stand to reason that World of Warcraft would get its own version of Monopoly eventually, right?

Right.

According to BlizzPlanet, an officially licensed World of Warcraft Monopoly will be unveiled at next week's Toy Fair 2012 in New York City. There really aren't any details as of yet, just that the board game will be showcased. Presumably, though, there will be a lot of customization involved, right down to the playing tokens.

Perhaps even more exciting than Monopoly (a game I am incapable of losing, FYI) is the companion Blizzard tie-in, Risk: StarCraft. Supposedly, the playing pieces for that game will include StarCraft II units. That's all sorts of awesome.

Update: BlizzPlanet has removed its references to these games in its Toy fair 2012 posting, so it's possible USAopoly was not prepared to announce these products yet.
