While Battleship is moving from the coffee table to the computer screen, Blizzard Entertainment is porting two of its most popular franchises, StarCraft and World of Warcraft, from the computer screen to the coffee table. According to Yahoo!, USAopoly is planning to release a StarCraft-themed version of Risk and a World of Warcraft-themed version of Monopoly this summer. They won't be cheap -- $40 each -- but fans have plenty to be excited about.

World of Warcraft fans have the chance to vote on which pieces should be included in the Monopoly game. Currently the Corehound Pup, Murky, and Doomhammer are winning, but there are seven more options to choose from. For the StarCraft version of Risk, players will be able to play as one of the game's three races -- Terran, Zerg, and Protoss -- as well as a handful of heroes from the game. Are you excited about World of Warcraft and StarCraft getting their own board games?

    I don't personally play WoW, but I had the Star Wars Monopoly back in the day and I loved that game.

    There already is 1 board games for Warcraft/World of Warcraft. I think I saw Starcraft have a board game also. Just go to the blizzard store and you will see them. There is also 1 card/board game for WoW.

    But I'd prefer SC as the monopoly. "Your Raynor landed on my Char with three bases on it! Pay up the 50,000 minerals, nao!" "Go straight to New Folsom. Do not pass Mar Sara, do not collect 200 credits."

    People stay all day on their computer...if new video games are made into board games, it's great because this way people can actually play physically together !

    well your the first I've heard of many of the people I've seen malnurished people who put that game in front of them selves and their children. wow should reward people who aren't on all the time instead of those who are.

    Those games would only be a success if you could also play them online for more hours than there are in a day.

    Here's to hoping for a legitimate Fallout 3 Monopoly, where your money is bottle caps, your properties come pre-destroyed, and if the game isn't going your way, you can just detonate the nuke in Megaton.

    When will people stop trying to port everything over to different mediums in the name of capitalism? Will I need to pay $5 a month to play it?
