'The Walking Dead' Infects Risk And Monopoly

Walking Dead Board Games

FROM MTV GEEK

The fine folks over at MTV Geek have all the details on two popular existing board games that are getting the zombie makeover. New editions of both Risk and Monopoly, with suitable amounts of gore thrown in to fully "Walking Dead"-ify them, will be hitting stores this September.

"We’re extremely excited to be working with USAopoly and Robert Kirkman’s Skybound imprint at Image Comics in what promises to be two great games that are destined to be bestsellers for retailers," said Bill Schanes, Diamond’s VP-Purchasing. Who thought that family game night could also prepare you for a possible zombie apocalypse?

For a close-up look at these board games (but not too close, protect yourself), head on over to MTV Geek.
