Last week, the folks at USAopoly
revealed that they had nabbed the Halo
license and planned to release a special, themed edition of the board game Risk
, soon after the retail release of Halo Wars
. Set to hit the street in July, Risk: Halo Wars
features three playable factions (UNSC, Covenant and that pesky Flood), 42 territories with six sectors and 250 plastic playing pieces that represent each of the three factions. The themed set has a MSRP of $39.99.
It may not be the new Halo
announcement many were hoping for, but a Halo
set has, "Yes, please," written all over it.
