Batman Chess Set Priced for Bruce Wayne

Batman Chess Set Priced for Bruce Wayne
Let me start by saying that this Batman chess set will set you back $795(USD). That’s a lot of money in this economy – especially during the Christmas season. It’s amazing just to behold, let alone play with.

Words with Friends and Draw Something Board Games: Gameception

Words with Friends and Draw Something Board Games: Gameception
That’s right folks, after conquering social networks and mobile devices, Zynga has wrenched open a portal to the physical realm. Midgard. Middle Earth. Or just plain Earth. The company partnered with Hasbro to release board game versions of their video games that were based on board games in the first place.

Fear And Loathing in Las Vegas Board Game Is a Real Trip Through Bat Country

Fear And Loathing in Las Vegas Board Game Is a Real Trip Through Bat Country
If you can believe it, the first Johnny Depp movie I saw was Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas – and I’ve been a fan ever since. It was an unconventional take on the quest to find the American dream.

Nintendo Risk Might as Well Be Called Nintendo Reward

Nintendo Risk Might as Well Be Called Nintendo Reward
A labor of love 7 years in the making, this heavily customized, Nintendo-themed variant of Risk was made by – drum roll please – redditor NintendoRisk. Instead of our countries and continents, the territories are places from various classic Nintendo games, including the Kanto region, Hyrule, Eagleland, Dinosaur Island and more.

Klingon Monopoly: It’s a Good Day to Roll the Dice

Klingon Monopoly: It’s a Good Day to Roll the Dice
Apparently Trekkies love Monopoly so much that USAopoly has released not one, but two Star Trek-themed Monopoly sets. Unlike the first one, this particular set will let you play with your Klingon friends. Yeah, I know, I’ve yet to find evidence that this “friend” creature exists either.

Build Your Ideal City in the Game of Urban Renewal

Build Your Ideal City in the Game of Urban Renewal
Games are meant to take your mind off reality. People play games to distract themselves from the million and one problems they’re currently having at work or in their business. However, the Urban Renewal board game probably won’t be much of a game for you if you work as a city councilor or developer.

LEGO Settlers of Catan: There’s Nothing Boring About This Board Game

LEGO Settlers of Catan: There’s Nothing Boring About This Board Game
If you are a board game fan, you will recognize what this is immediately, an amazing LEGO version of Settlers of Catan. If you don’t know what that is, you have been missing out on a fun board game.

Futurama Yahtzee: Bite My Shiny Plastic Dice Cup!

Futurama Yahtzee: Bite My Shiny Plastic Dice Cup!
I know it’s a primitive dice game, but I’ve always loved Yahtzee. I think it’s because it’s basically like playing poker, but with dice. And what better thing to combine with my compulsive gambling habit but a drunk-ass, foul-mouthed, beer-swilling bending robot?

Cthulhu Monopoly: The Ancient Ones Invade New Jersey

Cthulhu Monopoly: The Ancient Ones Invade New Jersey
Sure, we have every version of Monopoly that we could want right? Well, maybe now we do thanks to The Doom That Came To Atlantic City. It isn’t really a new version of Monopoly, but it just sort of spoofs it, with a bit of an Arkham Horror theme.

Street Fighter Monopoly Coming: How Do You Pull Off Combo Moves with Dice?

Street Fighter Monopoly Coming: How Do You Pull Off Combo Moves with Dice?
I think we’ve seen almost every version of Monopoly possible. There’s Star Trek Monopoly, Nintendo Monopoly, Star Wars Monopoly, Futurama Monopoly and now it looks like there’s a Street Fighter version coming from Capcom and USAopoly.

Monopoly Web Lovers Edition: Go Directly to Real World

Monopoly Web Lovers Edition: Go Directly to Real World
We’ve seen a few fan made videogame–themed takes on Monopoly. Now here’s a design for regulars of the World Wide Web. Instead of streets and utilities, you settle on websites and software. Instead of free parking, you get free Wi-Fi.

Giant Scrabble Board Still Guaranteed to Give You All Vowels

Giant Scrabble Board Still Guaranteed to Give You All Vowels
Being a tech geek, you’ll more often find me playing video games than board games, but that doesn’t mean I don’t still enjoy a good old game of Scrabble. Sure, you won’t be playing with someone across the globe, like with Words with Friends, but at least you get to play with some actual wooden tiles.

Aliens vs. Predator Chess Set: Alien Queen to Predator King, Checkmate!

Aliens vs. Predator Chess Set: Alien Queen to Predator King, Checkmate!
I have always liked both Alien and Predator – at least individually. When they were first combined, it wasn’t a stellar result, but this chess set looks pretty awesome. It will allow you to pit your own Aliens versus Predators and see who will come out on top.

Mass Effect Monopoly: Save the Galaxy One Dice Roll at a Time

Mass Effect Monopoly: Save the Galaxy One Dice Roll at a Time
I’m not Commander Shepard, and this is my – and as far as I know the only – Mass Effect-themed Monopoly game in the Citadel. It was made by prop maker/deviantARTist/just another Shepard Tommy LeRoy, who was inspired by the equally awesome Fallout Monopoly.
