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.


    I hate RISK. But I will be picking this up without any doubt.

    Metal Gear Solid 5: We Want you money

    "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.
