Enter to win a Collector's Edition World of Warcraft Monopoly set

Image
Earlier this week, we discovered an unexpected package on our doorstep: a World of Warcraft "Collector's Edition" Monopoly set straight from Irvine, California. We've been following the progress of this product since its premature leak back in February, through the community voting process to choose the play pieces, and the reveal of whose faces will grace the big bills. Very rarely do we get to watch the development process of a licensed product so closely, so it's a pleasure to now hold the actual product in our hands.

Of course, the best way to celebrate getting our hands on the product is to immediately give it to someone else. That's exactly what we're going to do to bring the month of May to a close. We're going to follow in our big brother Joystiq's footsteps on this one -- to enter, answer a simple question in the comments below: given the opportunity, where in the world of Warcraft would you buy real estate?

Rules and conditions for this giveaway are listed after the break.

Joystiq unboxes WoW Monopoly

Image
USAopoly's awesome foray in WoW-themed board games comes in the form of the World of Warcraft version of Monopoly. With player pieces like a Hearthstone, Core Hound Pup, and Mechagnome and WoW-themed real estate to buy with WoW-themed money, you know you're going to have fun playing this with your friends. I call the Hearthstone piece, though, and no one lets Sacco near the bank, because I bet he's a cheater.

Check out Joystiq's unboxing gallery here. World of Warcraft Monopoly is available for sale today. Joystiq is even giving away one of the games to a lucky commenter, so head on over to the site and enter to win.

Buy and sell Azerothian real estate in World of Warcraft Monopoly

Image
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.

World of Warcraft Monopoly money features heroes on the bills

Kotaku has got the scoop on the cool fake Monopoly money to be included with the World of Warcraft Monopoly game. Each bill features a faction leader (and Chen Stormstout) on the various notes, with familiar faction art representing the heroes. Here is the breakdown of characters on each bill:
  • $1 bill Chen Stormstout
  • $5 bill Magni Bronzebeard
  • $10 bill Vol'jin
  • $20 bill Tyrande Whisperwind
  • $50 bill Sylvanas Windrunner
  • $100 bill Varian Wrynn
  • $500 bill Thrall
Check out the gallery below of each of the Monopoly money game pieces. (Thanks to Kotaku for the story.)

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?

BlizzPlanet goes to Toy Fair 2012 in New York

Toy Fair 2012 started up on Sunday, Feb. 12, at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City, where many companies announced awesome new licensed Blizzard products that we're definitely excited about. The event ends tomorrow on Wednesday, Feb. 15. BlizzPlanet has been on the scene to report back on all of the new products coming stamped with the Blizzard seal of approval.

MEGA Bloks showed up with new prototypes for the World of Warcraft MEGA Bloks sets coming soon, with cool catapults and orcish scenary. Giant MEGA Blok Thrall was on hand to pose with fans. Insight Editions showed off its Diablo III: Book of Cain, and USAopoly made one of the biggest announcements with World of Warcraft Monopoly and RISK: StarCraft.

DC Unlimited continued to show off its figures for the World of Warcraft series, many of which were delayed for a long time for unknown reasons. However, these figures are coming, and they look great.

Check out BlizzPlanet for coverage of all of the licensed Blizzard products showing up at the convention.

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.
