final fantasy vii monopoly

Final Fantasy VII is finally getting its own Monopoly game, which makes sense because it’s a perfect fit.

Details are scarce, but the description reads:

Delve into the evolving city of Midgar in search of the latest business opportunities. Perhaps you’ll buy up a string of plots for housing development for the people, or go industrial and build a Mako reactor plant.

Trade with fellow players to secure key location and facilities and watch as savvy buyers secure a big pay day. A roll of a dice and a shrewd business mind will pave your way to success…Just watch out in case Shin-ra bring your empire crashing down!

Final Fantasy VII Monopoly is available to pre-order at $49.99 with shipping slated for April 2017.

If you’re an avid tabletop gamer, you probably like to set a particular mood for the game. Enter Coins of the Forge from LA-based Boonzy Arts

These candles come themed around a number of genres – Pirate, Dwarf, Sci-Fi, Steampunk and Zombie:

These candles, like the Wheel of Flame set, are meant to augment your game by providing an atmospheric fragrance corresponding to various themes. Each candle compliments a different genre of tabletop game and has a scent that is reminiscent of the worlds you may be visiting in the game.

Candle scents are still in development, but we have a rough idea. Scents are subject to change before the end of the campaign.

Take a closer look at the coins below. [click to continue…]

When a group of co-workers received a new pool table at work, they set about decorating all of the balls with hand-painted emoji faces just for the hell of it.

The resulting game, dubbed “Poolmoji” seems to make the game more fun. Clearly, the balls have strong emotions about their role in the game.

Maybe you don’t even need numbers and stripes to play a proper game—just make it happy emotions vs. sad emotions. The cue ball can have a neutral expression while the 8-ball is represented by the dead face emoji.

At any rate, if you want to play Poolmoji, you’ll need to find someone with decent painting skills. But I wouldn’t be surprised if these became a real product down the line.

See Poolmoji in action in the video below. [click to continue…]

Would you like an official Evil Dead 2 board game? Of course you do. Fortunately, Space Goat is working with Studiocanal to make that exact thing happen.

They’ll be offering a standard and deluxe version, both of which will allow you to play Ash as he fights off Deadites and tries to gather the pages of Ex-Mortis.

Featuring at least 8 custom figures and art depicting the terrifying and iconic characters, monsters, and locales from the film, the official Evil Dead 2 Board Game is the tabletop experience for Evil Dead 2 fans. 2-6 players will work together in 60–90 minute sessions to gather pages of the Ex-Mortis while trying to survive demon attacks, supernatural events, and avoid turning into evil deadites themselves.

The deluxe edition features exclusive figures of Ash Williams, Deadite Henrietta, and a box based on the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis, the Book of the Dead.

Someone, please tell me there’s a chainsaw figure.

If you want to help this game become a reality, you can learn more about their upcoming Kickstarter here.
