Plants vs. Zombies: The Board Game

Gotta admit — didn’t see this coming, although I suppose it makes sense. PvZ could translate quite well into a tower defense boardgame, sort of like Castle Panic. That said, it’s developed by Screenlife, the designers of those incredibly awful Scene It! games, so I can’t say I’m incredibly optimistic. Prove me wrong, guys. I’d like to play this with my daughter, but she’s turning into a boardgame connoisseur and will not tolerate cash-in schlocky bullshit. No idea where she gets that from.

Plants vs. Zombies: The Board Game will include four lawn game boards (one per player), 64 plant tiles, 66 zombie tiles, 40 plant cards, 80 zombie cards, four dice, and five assorted tokens. It’s slated for a fall 2011 release.

  1. Say what you will about Scene It! games; they are super popular and have a big fat footprint in places like Target and Wal-Mart. That really helps in the sell-side when trying to get onto shelves like that.

  2. Wouldn’t care how good the game was if I could get little PvZ miniatures with the game. Imagine a little crazy dave, little zombies with traffic cone hats and little peashooters. And how can you go walnut bowling with carboard chits. Missed opportunity.
