The Simpsons. It's amazing to think about how long that cartoon has been part of our world. Hell, I'm betting that many of you reading this have literally always had The Simpsons as part of your life. I remember when it started. I wasn't allowed to watch it as a kid, but I did watch it later on. Seasons 1-10 are sitting on my DVD shelf as I type this. But soon, I'll be able to add a Simpsons box to my board game shelf as well, as USAopoly has announced Codenames: The Simpsons.
Pet owners know that they're mischevious little furballs. Leave a plate of food unattended for even a moment and there's a good chance your burger or pizza might not be yours anymore.

Will you graduate with top honors?

USAopoly has a new Harry Potter game in the works. It's called Death Eaters Rising and it pits the gang of misfit wizards against the evil Lord Voldemort and his cohort of Death Eaters (I mean, I eat some super-hot pepper sauces, but I wouldn't say that I eat death).
USAopoly is celebrating all things Toy Story with a couple of new releases coming soon based on the franchise. There's a new Chess set.

Both of these sets will be available soon.
It's always nice when a Kickstarter gets to its backers and then to the public.

The regular school year might almost be over, but that doesn't mean the classes come to an end. At least, not if you want to earn your diploma from Dungeon Academy. Only the best adventurers will get one, as they have to compete through several Tests in the custom dungeon. Each round, the dungeon is created by rolling 16 dice, giving a whole new layout each time you play. In the end, only one will get top honors.
It might be called USAopoly, but that doesn't mean that the States are the only place that they sell games (or that they only sell Monopoly variants). In this particular instance, they are announcing that they've entered an agreement with Disney to sell Star Wars games in European, Middle Eastern, and African markets. So, while their company name might be entirely a lie in this instance, that's a good thing.

I know I don't normally post about all the different iterations of classic board games that USAOpoly comes out with, but these two really hit a, "well... that's interesting" chord with me. They have announced that they'll be releasing both a Clue and a Monopoly variant based on the IT movie (the most recent one. So, no Tim Curry, unfortunately), along with another game called IT: Evil Below.
It wasn't that long ago that we got the announcement that USAOpoly was going to be making reskinned versions of the Talisman board game. Well, they're delivering in style with the first one. Talisman is getting a Kingdom Hearts variant. All the Keyblades and Disney characters you could stand.
There's a new Marvel movie coming out soon in the form of Captain Marvel. In it, the titular Captain must take on shape-changing Skrulls who are trying to take over the world.
