By now you’ve already heard about Nintendo Monopoly, but let’s add two more video game-themed board games to the list: Halo Risk ($40) and Donkey Kong Jenga ($25).
With Halo Risk, you’ll set out to conquer 42 territories of Arcadia instead of the various territories of Earth. There’s room for five players spread across two Covenant armies, two human armies, and an army made up of The Flood. Halo Risk is $40 at ThinkGeek.
If you’re not down with playing a single board game like Risk for 10+ hours straight, then maybe Jenga’s more your speed. Except this is no ordinary Jenga, as you can play using “the Donkey Kong rules and race your Mario to the top of the tower to rescue Pauline before the structure collapses to the ground.” You can play the normal way, too, if you don’t deal well with change. Donkey Kong Jenga is $25 at ThinkGeek.
