Yes, board games still exist. As long as consumers still want to play them, Hasbro and USAopoly will keep putting new ones out there. Once upon a time, board games were one of the few family activities we had in our living room. It’s premise is probably one of the things that paved the way to what we call video games.
USAopoly is releasing a Limited Edition Metal Gear Solid RISK board game this November. This isn’t the first time USAopoly have done a version of Risk based on a video game. They did Halo Wars Risk a few years back. But compared to Halo Wars, the Metal Gear Solid version is a limited time offer of only 2,014.Â I am a sucker and they’ve suckered me into it already 🙂 It’ll probably be gone by the time it comes out and pre-ordering the board game starts on October 3rd til November 15. I could see the press release coming out soon after saying “Due to an overwhelming demand, we’ve decided to put out another so and so and so…”. But who knows. On a final note, this board game is only available to U.S. and Canada due to a licensing agreement as stated on the website.
