Skylanders, World of Warcraft, and Others to be Transformed into Board Games

on February 11, 2013 8:56 AM

Whenever the International Toy Fair is underway  there is always the slight chance for toys to let slip on secrets being held by the film, television, and video game industries. It was recently revealed that several popular video game franchises will be given the board game treatment by USAopoly (licensee of Monopoly games for Hasbro). Among those games are Mass Effect, World of Warcraft, and Space Invaders.

They will not all be transformed into Monopoly games (RISK: Mass Effect though?!), but will instead serve as the themes for a variety of different games. You can read the complete list below. All announced games are set to be released this year.
