Seattle, WA.  (September 30, 2013)  Dig into fun-dead action as PopCap Games’

plants and zombies make their tabletop gaming debut in RISK®: Plants vs. Zombies™ Collector’s Edition. Produced by USAopoly under license from Hasbro, Inc. and in conjunction with PopCap, this all new experience takes the hilarious characters from the mega-hit video game Plants vs. Zombies into an awesome tabletop battle for suburban domination!

This completely customized take on two-player RISK offers a double-sided gameboard and three head-to-head ways to play: Tower Defense, Mission Objective, or Total Domination. With a detailed map of the original town of Brainsborough on one side and the familiar Plants vs. Zombies backyard from the video game on the other, players opt to be plants or zombies and then pick their battlefield. Fighting for their very survival, players engage in skirmishes, battle for three different victory conditions, and play the classic RISK game mode, vying to take over the whole board.

In this mulchifying take on the traditional RISK game, armies have been replaced by Peashooters and Threepeaters who attempt to prevent the consumption of human brains everywhere by the ever-approaching Brown Coat Zombies and Zombie Mobs.

With all-new Plants vs. Zombies content and locations, combined with easy-to-learn, fast-paced two-player action, RISK: Plants vs. Zombies Collector’s Edition is a whole new way to have fun while protecting brains. Or eating them.

The 2-player RISK: Plants vs. Zombies Collector’s game is for ages 10+ at a suggested retail price of $29.99. It is available now at and Amazon, and will arrive shortly at Kohl’s, Go! Games, ThinkGeek and other North American specialty retailers.
