PopCap releases RISK: Plants vs. Zombies Collector’s Edition board game
We’ve been hearing a few low-key rumblings about an official Plants vs. Zombies board game for quite some time now, and it looks like all that waiting has finally paid off this morning! In partnership with Hasbro, Inc., renowned game developer PopCap has pulled the lid off a PvZ-skinned version of the classic world domination board game RISK, and has made the wonderful blend of franchises available for purchase right at this very moment.

The double-sided game board should be immediately familiar to fans of the popular “plant defense” series of video games, with one side depicting the all-new town of Brainsborough (which looks like something taken straight out of Plants vs. Zombies Adventures), and the other side reserved for an iconic PvZ backyard scene. The two-player game will also offer three different ways to compete in head-to-head matches, including Tower Defense, Mission Objective, and Total Domination.
RISK: Plants vs. Zombies Collector’s Edition is currently available right now on the official PvZStore.com, as well as Amazon.com for $29.99. And in the meantime, you can get your first gander at the actual zombie-themed game board just below this paragraph, complete with character cards, Crazy Dave tokens, and beautiful game pieces that are molded directly after our favorite factions of warring zombies and plants (purple for zombies and green for plants, naturally).
