Konami’s Getting Risk-y With The Metal Gear Solid Board Game

Konami’s Getting Risk-y With The Metal Gear Solid Board Game

“Snake? SNAAAKE?! It’s your roll.” You too can make this ill-conceived attempt at a joke with the forthcoming Metal Gear Solid-themed edition of classic strategy board game Risk, a game not surprisingly titled Risk: Metal Gear Solid.

Board game maker USAopoly—makers of Risk: Halo Wars!—will bring the military conflicts of Metal Gear to tabletops, seemingly borrowing the aesthetic and Private Military Contractor themes of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.

Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima tweeted about the existence of the new board game at Comic-Con today. Konami reps tell Kotaku that Risk: Metal Gear Solid is not officially announced just yet, nor was the game playable at Comic-Con. All USAopoly and Konami brought to the convention was an empty box and the promise of more to come.

Konami reps told Kotaku that we’ll hear official details on Risk: Metal Gear Solid in the next two weeks.


  • “Six? Can’t be!”
    “Your character has been infected with nanomachines injected by the Templars on the orders of the Ghost Pentagon and the Illuminati-Freemason-La-Li-Lu-Le-Lo. Lose a turn.”
    “Go Jirectly to Dail”
    “You are now an AI. For some reason. Lose a turn”.

    And of course: When you win the game, you secretly lose, as it was the purpose of all the other players to let you win the game. That’s right – it was all a plot to let you win so that the Patriots could pass go and collect 200 dollars.

  • Lol, At the end of the game you think you’ve won cause you’re the last player. Then Ocelot wins.
