The lights are on
BioWare's Mass Effect Facebook page has been updated with a prototype picture of Risk: Mass Effect, a new board game from USAopoly. The set is due out in the fall. No game details have been released at this point, but I guessing the piece colors won't be limited to just blue, red, and green.
USAopoly is also releasing board game adaptations of numerous other video game product, including Trivial Pursuit: World of Warcraft, Risk: Plants vs. Zombies, Yahtzee: Pac-Man, and Jenga: Space Invaders. The company's back catalog is loaded with game properties. You can pick up Risk: Starcraft, Risk: Metal Gear Solid, Risk: Halo, Risk: Halo Wars, Monopoly: Sonic the Hedgehog, Monopoly: World of Warcraft, Checkers: Super Mario, and Monopoly: Street Fighter right now.

Hey the Starcraft Risk is legit too!
Haha @ colors.
Risk Starcraft must be adorable :3
Haha well it's a good idea!
The last time I bought a Risk board I stopped using it since I frequently ended up finishing games by myself. However, if it's not too expensive I might bite for this one.
I'm definitely gonna look into getting this.
It's nice, but I have too many Risk games (and noone to play with) both as a board game and video game. :/
Sounds like a risky move Bioware's making here.
I hope you can play as the Reapers so that when I win I can give them either a blue, red or green card. And if they beat me, I'll just loudly declare "SO BE IT" and flip the board. In all seriousness, this actually looks pretty awesome and I'd buy the hell out of it.
I saw the "prototype" and got scared that this was some weird crossover between ME and that wannabe Infamous game!
Ohh man if the different armies were Alliance, Reaper, Cerberus, or Geth, MMMMM play as geth every time.
I love Risk and I love Mass Effect, therefore I will really love Risk: Mass Effect! The only problem would be trying to find people to actually play a full game haha
SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!!!
I would buy the hell out of this. I love Risk, and I love Mass Effect. Win, win.
This is too awesome. Definitely want. Hopefully star child is not included. Or maybe he is but now we can blow him up. :)
Wow, the nerd in me got really excited. I'm ashamed to admit that I would buy this just for the pieces.
