The reanimated corpse that is The Walking Dead cash-cow continues to be bled dry with both a Monopoly and Risk: The Walking Dead Survival Edition in the works.

Here's the synopsis for Monopoly, via Bloody Disgusting:

Despite its post-apocalyptic setting, MONOPOLY: The Walking Dead Survival Edition delivers classic Monopoly wheeling and dealing game play. Players vie for, and then must fortify, the prime real estate and resources that will sustain their lives. There’s only one victor that will outlast the others – whether living or undead – when all is said and done. This completely customized game features six collectible tokens, optional speed play and a fight to the finish!

I hate Monopoly. It represents everything that is wrong about a capitalist-driven society, as you are forced to financially crush your opposition into submission. It also takes too long to finish and is incredibly boring. Throw in some zombies though and I could be tempted to give it a whirl.

Here's the synopsis for Risk:

The Walking Dead Survival Edition is a fun, new twist on classic Risk game play. USAopoly will debut a brand new map set in the southeast region of the United States where players battle and scavenge for their very lives. Contending for survival at every turn, gamers must not only fend off attacks from the living who compete for precious, limited resources upon which their survival depends , but they also must maintain their self-preservation from the unrelenting hordes of the undead that would feast upon them. A new deck of “Supply Cards” will add strategy, fun and flavor to this classic tabletop game. Gamers can expect a fast-paced game of attrition and survival, where this time—the last man standing wins!

Could be a blast.
