World of Warcraft: The Board Game

Mark Asher

Forget to pay your utility bill and you realize you can't play WoW without electricity? An asteroid crashes into your local power station and you find yourself WoW-less? Your computer is emitting wisps of blue smoke and beeping at you and you have a sinking realization that you won't make that Molten Core run tonight? Never fear! You can still get your WoW jones in by playing World of Warcraft, the Board Game!

This $80 board game (yikes!) is due out in a few weeks from Fantasy Flight Games and does look rather neat. You play as Horde or Alliance and are part of a team trying to be the "...first to defeat the invincible Overlord – be it the lich-king Kel'Thuzad, the dragon Nefarian, or the demon Kazzak – or, failing that, to be the last faction standing when it comes to all-out war!" according to Fantasy Flight's website.

The game certainly looks handsome and you get plastic figurines to push around on the board while you create the appropriate sound effects -- practice those murloc gurgles. Eighty bones is a lot to put down for a board game, but look at the bright side -- no monthly fees!
